No one wants to imagine being involved in an accident. Perhaps the most frightening is the prospect of being a bicycle rider hit by an automobile.
The facts are shocking. In the United States, a bicyclist is fatally injured every 6 hours. Nearly one million children are hurt every year in bicycle-related accidents.
Only one-third of all bicycle accidents involve collisions with automobiles. However, these accidents account for the majority of the catastrophic injuries and 75% of these are head injuries.
Although children are at the greatest risk of becoming the victims of careless drivers, every one of us is vulnerable, as we go about our day-to-day activities. A bicycle accident victim may lose income from work, time from school, or have to cope with the pain of injuries and necessary medical treatments.
In short, a serious accident can significantly change a victim's life -- temporarily or even permanently.
If you or a family member is a bicyclist involved in an automobile accident, you need to protect your legal rights. Consult with an experienced personal injury attorney, before you talk with the insurance company of the person at fault. If you sign the wrong papers, you may give up all your legal claims and settle for far less than you deserve.
After bicycle accidents, bicycle accident victims and their families frequently concentrate on their physical, emotional, or financial challenges. However, the time that the law allows for an adult or child to act to preserve their legal rights starts to run from the day of the bicycle accident.
It is not unusual for a bike accident victim who is struggling to deal with a disabling injury, to forget that time is running out to take the steps necessary to secure benefits.
