Bicycle Accidents

The Center for Disease Control estimates that more than 500,000 people are treated each year in emergency rooms due to bicycle-related accidents. Bicycle-related injuries cause more than 700 deaths each year in the United States.

Causes of bicycle crashes include:

  • Inattention of vehicle drivers
  • Vehicle driver errors
  • Loose gravel or slippery road surfaces
  • Cyclist speed
  • Stunts
  • Defects in the design or construction of the bicycle

The nighttime hours are the most dangerous for bicycle riders. If you are bicycle rider, you can protect yourself by wearing a helmet and increasing your visibility.

As a result of your bicycle accident, you may have sustained medical expenses, lost income, a reduction in your earning capacity, rehabilitation expenses as well as pain and suffering.
