Bicycle Accident Attorney in Pasadena
Bicycle Accident Statistics
Bicycle accidents comprise a staggering percentage of the six million traffic accidents that occur in the United States every year. Roughly 2% of all traffic accidents involve bicycles, which translates to 52,000 cyclists suffering injury, and 700 being killed on an annual basis. The injuries sustained in these accidents are often serious, and include broken or crushed bones,
brain damage, spine damage, internal injuries, and coma. Several factors contribute to the severity of bicycle accident injuries, the primary one being that of limited protection for the rider. At the most, a rider will have a helmet and elbow/knee pads to protect them from stationary objects or other vehicles. This results in the odds being against them in the event of a collision.
It is strongly recommended that you seek the counsel of a Pasadena personal injury attorney in the event that you have been harmed in a bicycle accident. A skilled attorney will be able to build a case for you that is designed to assign fault to the person responsible for your accident, and increase your chances of obtaining the compensation you require for the treatment of your injuries.
