Despite bright colored jerseys and reflective materials, bikers are struck by motor vehicles on roads. Municipalities have attempted to reduce the number of deaths and injuries to bikers by creating bike lanes and wider roads. Unfortunately, as vehicle size increases, the chances that a bicyclist is injured on a busy road increases every day.
Like motorcyclists, bikers are exposed to a number of injuries even with slow speed impacts. The immediate review of accident scenes and documentation of evidence related to the crash are important first steps in the preservation of your right to recover for your injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured on a bicycle, contact an experienced bicycle accident attorney.
