Bicycles are gaining increased popularity in the United States because they provide a wealth of benefits for cyclists and the environment. Riding a bike instead of driving an automobile saves on gas expenses, boosts health, and even decreases emissions that would harm our environment.
Despite the wealth of benefits we gain from riding a bike, there are inherent risks, too. Imprudent drivers pose a threat to cyclists that can cause personal injury. Last year alone there were approximately 750 casualties and about 50,000 injuries that resulted from bike related accidents. Sometimes a leisurely bike ride can become a horrific ordeal when you least expect it. Negligent drivers can cause significant harm cyclists because they were texting on their phone, changing the radio station, or speeding recklessly. These careless mistakes can even result in fatality. A cyclist who has been the victim of a careless driver has rights, rights that Bizzieri Law Offices will fight to defend.
