Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Every six hours, a bicyclist is struck and fatally injured by a motor vehicle driver. This is primarily due to a vehicle running a red light, failing to yield, or simply because the driver didn’t see the bicyclist.
Bicyclists are often subjected to hit-and-runs, illegal driving practices, serious injuries, and property damage. In 2018, 857 bicyclists died in traffic crashes in the United States. Cyclists don’t have the advantage of being encased in tons of protective technology like drivers and are more likely to be injured.
