Find a Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Although bicycle accidents are by far one of the least common types of traffic accidents, they are often very serious. The injuries that a bicycle rider may sustain when struck by a car, truck or other motor vehicle may leave him or her in need of immediate hospitalization and with a lasting or permanent disability. Broken bones, internal organ damage, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries may all be caused by a bicycle accident. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 51,000 bicyclists were injured and 630 were killed in traffic accidents in 2009. Bicyclist fatalities accounted for 2% of the total number of traffic fatalities that year.
