Standing Up For Injured Bicyclists
Cyclists are among the most safety-conscious groups of people. They know that sharing the road with larger and heavier vehicles puts them at risk for bike accidents. They abide by the rules of the road, wear helmets, choose reflective clothing in the early morning and evening hours, and are vigilant about their surroundings.
But even the safest cyclist is no match for a distracted or negligent driver. Bicycle accidents can result in serious injuries.
