Whether for sport or recreation, riding a bike is a great form of exercise and environmental-friendly transportation, especially when the weather starts warming up. However, more bikes on the road and sidewalks often means more bicycle accidents. Drivers of cars, trucks, and motorcycles often forget to look out for bicycles on the streets, leading to severe and, at times, deadly accidents. According to the CDC, in 2015 there were nearly 467,000 bicycle-related injuries in the United States.
Aside from a helmet, the lack of protection bicycles provide often means that when you are in a crash on a bicycle, the injuries you sustain can change your life for the worse in an instant. If you were hit and hurt in a bicycle accident that was not your fault, you need an experienced attorney on your side to protect your right to compensation.
Because bicycle accidents are often so severe, the aftermath is similarly serious. The CDC reports that in 2010 alone the fatal and non-fatal bicycle crash-related injuries resulted in lifelong medical costs and productivity losses of about $10 billion. While bicycle helmets reduce the risk of head injuries and fatalities for bicyclists, the injuries bicyclists face after a crash need extensive medical attention to treat, resulting in piles of medical bills. When you're injured because of someone else's negligence, you have rights that deserve protecting, rights that entitle you to compensation after a bike crash.
