Bike Accidents Attorney
Bicycle accidents are a harsh reality given that every six hours a bicyclist is fatally injured in the united states. Nearly seventy-five percent of all serious injuries and deaths from bicycle accidents include head injuries. Since cars and bicycles often share the road, negligent drivers heavily contribute to the number of bike accidents in america. If a driver is not observant of the area surrounding their car and makes a turn, pulls out of a driveway or alley, or even opens a car door without checking for pedestrians, other vehicles, or bicyclists, an accident will likely take place. If you have been involved in a bike accident, it is imperative to contact an Iowa or Illinois Bicycle Accident Attorney to protect your legal rights.
Bike Injuries Can Be Severe Due to Lack of Protection
Bike accident injuries can be especially severe since a bicycle does not offer the level of protection that a car does when one is involved in a wreck. A vehicle that weighs thousands of pounds can easily crush a bicycle and its rider in an accident. Injuries common to bicycle accident victims include head injuries, concussions, bone fractures, spine injuries and paralysis. All of these injuries take time to recover and may result in lost time at work, soaring medical bills, excruciating pain and suffering, as well as emotional trauma and disfigurement.
