Before we get into the numbers, we want you to know that nearly every single bicycle crash results in an injury or a fatality. Bicyclists are one of the most vulnerable groups in and around the roadway and, unfortunately, drivers do not give them the respect they deserve.

When it comes to bicycle crashes, the injuries are often severe. It is not uncommon for us to see the following in the aftermath of a bicycle crash:
Even bicycle crashes that happen at slower speeds can cause major injuries. Victims of these crashes can find that they require multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation in order for them to make a full recovery. Unfortunately, many families suffer as well. If the person injured is a main income-earner for the household, simply paying regular household bills may become an impossibility.
We know that many bicycle crashes are caused by the negligent or careless actions of vehicle drivers. In many cases, they occur in areas where a cyclist has the right-of-way, like intersections, bike paths, and crosswalks.
In other cases, we know that cyclists are struck by distracted drivers. When vehicle drivers pay more attention to their phones or other devices, everyone around them is at risk of injury. Drivers impaired by drugs or alcohol pose the most danger, as they often do not slow down before an impact.

The reality is that there are plenty of negligent drivers who do not respect the rights of bicyclists. If you are injured in a bike crash, Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates is ready to help.
