Bicycle Injury Lawyers
Bicycle accidents are like car accidents in that bicycles have the same right to the road that cars do. Other motorists are required to yield to them as they do to motor vehicles. Bicycle accidents are also like pedestrian accidents because bicyclists’ bodies are not protected by a car’s steel body. In a collision, a bicyclist may be thrown into the air, with a hard landing on the street’s surface. Also, the motor vehicle in the accident may not be damaged much, so hit-and-run accidents are not uncommon.
If you were injured while bicycling or were perhaps injured as a pedestrian struck by a bicycle, get emergency medical care and follow doctors’ orders. Also, contact an attorney as soon as possible to get a thorough investigation underway.
