There are many obvious reasons that bicyclists prefer to travel the road on two wheels rather than four. Bicycles cost little or nothing to park, are a way to exercise and offer a way to alleviate passenger vehicle emissions into the environment. Whatever the reason bicyclists choose to ride, they are entitled to operate their bicycles in a safe space without incident. However, some bicyclists are not so lucky when they come in contact with a motor vehicle.
This type of collision can render the bicyclist seriously injured and can truly threaten his or her health and well-being. Many drivers are distracted or engaging in negligent behavior at the time of crashes such as this. While bicyclists may be more difficult to see than passenger vehicles, they are still entitled to the roads as much as any other mode of transportation. This is why bicyclists need to consider all options after suffering through such a catastrophic event.
The Jaffe Law Firm has worked tirelessly for their clients to ensure that they are in a position to receive the compensation they deserve after serious injuries sustained in a bicycle accident. First-hand experience with serious injury accident claims are important as it can better prepare those involved. We understand the stress you or your family have been under during this difficult time. Respecting the family’s situation is just as important as the legal know-how to turn accusations into legal decisions.
Bicyclists have the same right to the road as motor vehicles. If this right was violated in the form of negligence that caused personal injury, the injured person may have a valid legal claim. Each bicycle accident is different, and will require special attention in order to potentially secure a favorable outcome. Bicyclists could very easily be ejected from their bikes, grazed by a car, or even worse. Whatever the circumstance, personal injury is not anything to take lightly.
