Pennsylvania Bicycle Accident Lawyers
An experienced Bicycle Accident Attorney knows how devastating an accident involving a bike can be. When accidents occur while bicycling, they tend to be quite serious for obvious reasons. Unlike passengers in cars or trucks, the bicycle rider is unprotected on all sides. Prudent bicycle riders take adequate precautions to minimize the likelihood of harm in the event they should fall or be thrown from their bicycle.
For example, bicycle riders should:
- wear safety helmets
- observe the rules of the road
- wear fluorescent or other brightly colored clothes to increase their visibility to other drivers
- use a front light and red rear reflector
- be courteous to other drivers and never exhibit “road rage” even if others fail to extend courtesy to them
- expect that others may not see them and should therefore drive defensively
Of course, despite one’s best efforts, accidents do happen. Unfortunately, with respect to bicycle accidents, the injuries tend to be severe, and may be expected to include brain injury, spinal cord injury or even death. Bicycle accidents in Lancaster, Pennsylvania are no exception.
Experienced Pennsylvania Bicycle Accident Lawyers understand the nuances associated with advocating cases involving bicycle accidents. As with all personal injury cases, in the event that you have suffered an injury while riding a bicycle, you need creative and experienced counsel.
