Product Liability and Personal Injury
The most committed and professional lawyers can assist you with even the toughest Product Liability and Personal Injury cases, including but not limited to serious injuries caused by bicycle accidents. According to the CDC, nearly 1,000 bicyclists die and over 130,000 are injured in crashes that occur on roads in the United States every year.
Whether someone has had to deal with Product Liability and Personal Injury cases before, any other kind of accident can still happen to them. Unfortunately, this could mean even suffering an injury at the hands of a regular pastime. Millions of Americans ride bikes every single day whether as a leisure activity, for exercise, or as transportation to get around. But doing anything that involves being outside, moving at higher speeds, and without much protection of your surroundings, it can still carry some risk.
The risk varies from group to group. For example, teenagers have the highest rates of bicycle-related injuries treated in emergency departments, and additional risk factors include being in an urban area, being in a section of a road near intersections, and being under the influence of drugs and alcohol. A bicycle, like any other product is held to certain manufacturing standards. If your bnicycle accident is the result of a part malfunction that should not have occurred, this might also be a product liability case.
While wearing a helmet and padding could help save your life if you crash into a tree, it doesn’t discount the fact that it could take more than one person to cause an accident. Some of the reasons why bicycle accidents occur are because of drivers not paying attention. They tend to be busy paying attention to other cars and trucks on the road and aren’t usually able or willing to look out for cyclists too. Some cyclists are injured when a driver swings open a car door without looking to see if a cyclist is passing by, or an accident could have been caused by the city’s poor road maintenance.
