Bicycling is becoming an increasingly popular hobby in Ohio and across the United States. Unfortunately, as more people take to roads on their bicycles, the likelihood of bicycle accidents increases. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that, in 2008, bicyclists accounted for two percent of all traffic fatalities, as well as two percent of all people injured in traffic crashes during the year. In all, according to the NHTSA, some 716 bicyclists were killed and 52,000 were injured in traffic accidents in 2008.
In a state where bicyclists have an equal claim to the roadways, it is difficult to believe that people often side with the driver of the motor vehicle involved in a bicycle accident. Even when bicyclists are obeying the law, prospective jurors will often put themselves in the place of the driver who hit them and not the injured victim. If you've been injured in a bicycle accident, you need experienced, aggressive attorneys who will fight to obtain the compensation you deserve. Contact us to arrange a free consultation.
