Seriously Injured? Get Serious Representation from Metzger Wickersham

In Pennsylvania, a bicycle is considered a vehicle and as such is governed by a general set of rules common to all vehicles, as well as rules specifically for bicycles. Even the most law-abiding cyclist is still vulnerable on the roadways. Helmets and crash protection are sometimes no match against a motorized vehicle. A serious injury can occur in an instant.

If you sustained an injury in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Don't let the insurance company control what happens next. Turn to the Pennsylvania bicycle accident attorneys at Metzger Wickersham for the skilled representation you need to get compensated for your medical bills, pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages, and other damages.

Since 1888, Metzger Wickersham has aggressively advocated for clients in various legal practices. We now utilize that experience to pursue the maximum compensation they are entitled to under the law. Backed by decades of experience and one of the largest support staff in the region, we are able to devote significant amounts of time to each individual case.

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. If you have found yourself in this situation, you have rights – call our bicycle accident lawyers now to discuss your options.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bicyclists who are struck by other vehicles may sustain a variety of serious injuries. As cycling continues to become more popular, it's important for motorists and bicyclists alike to be mindful of each other.

Bicycle accidents commonly result in these injuries:

Some motorists have difficulty with bicyclists who share the roadway. A driver's "road rage" could lead to a collision with the cyclist. In other cases, a cyclist may crash into a door if a driver is not looking while trying to exit the vehicle.
