Weitz & Luxenberg lawyers help bicyclists seek compensation for their accidents
According to the CDC, half a million bicyclists end up in the emergency room each year, and 700 fatalities occur. That's two bicyclists killed nearly every day. Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. is an ardent defender of accident victims suffering catastrophic injuries.
Bicyclists are exceptionally vulnerable to the motorists with whom they share the road, being smaller, slower, and less reflective than most vehicles. Unlike a car, they travel silently and seldom have signal lights. It is important for their own safety that bicyclists wear a helmet, obey traffic signals, and increase their visibility to automobile drivers by using a front light and rear reflector. However, even the safest bicyclest can’t always defend themselves from drivers who don’t pay attention.
At the mercy of strangers
A bicyclist in California was recently killed when a car slammed into him from behind and callously continued on its way. The bicyclist died at the hospital and his killer was never identified.
Sadly, bicyclists are, to a degree, at the mercy of drivers and their equipment. Obeying the rules of the road and staying in one's lane of traffic won't always help. No matter how skilled, experienced, or cautious the rider may be, disaster is always one reckless automobile away.
