Riding a bike can be a great form of exercise, a way to enjoy a beautiful day, or an inexpensive and environmentally-friendly mode of transportation. Unfortunately, it can also be deadly when drivers of motor vehicles are not paying attention to the bicyclists with whom they are supposed to share the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 52,000 bicyclists were injured and 716 were killed in 2008 as a result of collisions with motor vehicles. Most of those accidents (69%) occurred in busy urban areas. Twenty-eight bicyclist deaths occurred in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in 2008.
Bicyclists are expected to comply with all traffic laws when they are on public roadways, just as if they were operating motor vehicles. Neither motor vehicles nor bicycles have the right of way over the other; drivers of both must be aware of all other vehicles on the road. Unfortunately, despite their best efforts to comply with all appropriate laws, bicyclists are all too frequently struck by drivers of motor vehicles who are not paying attention to their surroundings. Sadly, it is the bicyclist who suffers the most serious injuries in these situations. Cuts, scrapes, and bruises are almost always present. More serious injuries, such as broken bones, concussions, internal bleeding, and even death, are also a very real possibility.
Representing bicycle accident victims requires a team of aggressive investigators and lawyers all devoting their maximum effort to their clients. At The Levin Firm of Pennsylvania, our personal injury attorneys investigate every claim so that we may aggressively and zealously represent our clients and obtain the best possible results.
