When More Bicycles Result In More Accidents
Bicyclists face unique challenges on the road because they do not enjoy the same protections offered to pedestrians and cannot contend with the power and size of automobiles. More people than ever are riding bicycles, whether for commuting to work, exercising or simply enjoying the outdoors. Pennsylvania cities are becoming more bicycle-friendly, as bike lanes are installed and new laws are passed to protect safety. Those who bike to work are doing so to remain active and to rely less on their cars.
Car drivers should respect this choice and be on the lookout for bicyclists. Unfortunately, accidents between cars and bicycles are common, and often the result of a careless or distracted vehicle driver. At Waldron & Williams, our experienced attorneys are here to help.
Serious Injuries For Cyclists
Bicycle accidents caused by a car, truck, van, bus, SUV or other motor vehicles can cause serious injuries. A biker’s head, legs, arms and knees are the most likely to be injured in an accident and can include such injuries as:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Fractured bones
A biker who has been hit on the street, crosswalk, bike lane or road may have pain and severe injuries which can be very difficult to cope with and warrant a consultation with an experienced and aggressive bicycle accident lawyer.
