Many motorists do not understand the law when it comes to bicycles. They often treat cyclists as an inconvenience or simply fail to notice them at all. Negligent driving by car and truck drivers causes countless serious injuries and deaths among bicycle riders every year.
The lack of understanding displayed by drivers may also be a problem among jury members. If a trial is necessary to get you the compensation you deserve, it is vital to choose an experienced and skillful lawyer. You need someone with the knowledge and resources to demonstrate why the accident was not your fault and get you the compensation you deserve.Protecting the Biking Community
Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as any car or truck driver when using the roads. That said, it is vital to protect those rights by holding negligent drivers accountable when they cause accidents. Distracted driving is a threat to every vehicle on the road, but bicycle riders are particularly vulnerable when cars are operated negligently. Even a low speed collision with a car can be fatal for a cyclist.Speak to a Bicycle Accident Attorney Today
