Bicycle Accidents Lawyer
Special aspects of bicycle accidents often include the following:
- Injuries tend to be severe, especially when a bicyclist is thrown from his or her bicycle. A helmet may protect a bicyclist from the worst head injuries, but it cannot prevent back and neck injuries, including spinal cord injuries.
- Bicycle accidents often occur in circumstances that prompt the driver of the car or truck to claim afterwards that he or she “did not see the bicyclist.” Even though bicycles have the same legal rights as cars and trucks on city streets, drivers tend not to look out for them or not to give them a full traffic lane when passing them, as they should.
- Bicycle accidents are often hit-and-run accidents. If the driver of the car or truck is never found, the injured bicyclist may recover compensation through his or her own uninsured and underinsured (UIM) motorist coverage.
