The Sutliff & Stout Law Firm hears too often of accidents that occur with children riding their bicycles to school and a car comes along and hits them. It’s an accident that can be easily prevented by driving defensively – looking in all mirrors before backing out of a driveway or checking mirrors before changing a lane. When drivers neglect this practice, it can lead to bicycle accidents, or even worse, death.
