Bicycle Accident Causes and Injuries
Bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents can be caused by a number of reasons. Drivers do not pay enough attention on the road, ignore bike lanes or follow riders too closely. If a driver is talking on his or her cell phone, texting, driving recklessly, speeding, failing to yield or stop — accidents can occur.
Many bicycle accidents occur at low impacts, but because of the force of a vehicle against a bike, the injuries can be extremely serious. Our firm will represent bikers suffering a range of injuries from bike accidents, including:
- Road rash
- Head trauma
- Neck and back injuries
- Broken bones
