Although bicycles are sometimes considered a mode of transportation for younger children, more adults are choosing to bike to work or around town than ever before. Bicyclists have the same rights and are responsible for obeying the same traffic laws as every other vehicle on the road. Unfortunately, many motorists regard bicyclists as less than equal partners on the road and drive negligently when around them.
Thousands of bicyclists are injured every year across the United States as a consequence of negligent actions by those who are driving motor vehicles. If you have been involved in a bicycle accident caused by another party’s lack of care for safety, we can help.
