Phoenix Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Compensation for Injured Cyclists
Arizona crash statistics show that nearly 2,000 bicycle accidents occurred in Arizona in 2011. The majority of these accidents are caused by negligent and reckless motorists who fail to yield the right-of-way to a cyclist who is sharing the road with them. According to Arizona traffic laws, bicyclists have ultimately the same rights on the road as other vehicles do. When a motorist ignores a cyclist's rights or fails to pay attention and give cyclists the space they need, an accident and serious injury can occur. The same set of statistics shows that more than 1,600 cyclists were injured in the total number of crashes, and 23 people were killed. If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you deserve fair compensation.
Bicycle Accident Damages
Bicyclists have little to no protection in the event of a crash. The impact of a collision can cause severe broken bones, traumatic brain injury, road rash, and spinal cord injury. Medical treatment for such injuries is very expensive and is likely to be unaffordable without fair compensation. By filing a personal injury claim against the negligent motorist who hit you, you can recover damages for your medical bills, any loss of income, and pain and suffering.
