When considering those injuries, it is easy to see how families can be placed into financial jeopardy. Not only do they have to contend with major medical bills, but there are also other hidden accident costs, including lost income of the victim, long-term rehabilitation costs, home or vehicle accommodations, emotional and psychological damages, and more.
We know that many bicycle crashes happen at intersections, crosswalks, and other areas where cyclist have the right-of-way. Many people ignore or do not even see a cyclist until they hit them. This can often be attributed to distracted driving or just carelessness. Other times, impaired drivers strike bicyclists at high speeds.
