Seriously Injured? Get Serious Representation from Metzger Wickersham

Bicycle Accidents Often Result in Serious, Permanent Injuries
Motor vehicle drivers have a duty to share the road, and this includes sharing it with bicyclists. Unfortunately, there are some careless drivers who fail to drive conscientiously and who end up colliding with bicyclists because they weren’t paying attention to the road, were following the bicyclist too closely, or failed to yield the right of way. Because bicycles leave riders exposed and without any bodily protection, collisions with speeding automobiles weighing thousands of pounds often results in catastrophic injury or fatality.
Bicyclists often suffer serious injuries including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. These injuries can be life-changing for victims and their families and often result in significant financial strain due to expensive medical bills and lost income.
