Nobody should ever have to worry about being harmed while riding their bicycle. However, there are times when the careless or negligent actions of a driver can cause serious injuries. At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., our experienced St. Louis bicycle accident attorneys are ready to help if you have been injured. We will conduct a full investigation into what happened and work to secure the compensation you deserve.
Bicycle accidents are more common than most people want to think about. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that there were 857 bicyclists killed in 2018 across the US. Many thousands more were injured. When we look at the statistics provided by the Missouri Department of Public Safety, we can see that there were hundreds of bicycle accidents during the latest reporting year. Almost every bicycle accident that gets reported also comes with information about an injured cyclist. Many of these incidents are fatal.
At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., our bicycle crash lawyers regularly help clients with the following injuries after an incident:
There are several factors to consider when examining these injuries. First, they often require extensive medical care and can cause immense pain and suffering for a victim. Second, there are massive costs that come with these injuries. Not only do victims have to contend with expensive medical bills, but they may not be able to work while they recover. This could lead to losing the income they need to support themselves and their families.
While there are times a bicyclist would be liable for an accident, these crashes are often the fault of another driver. All too often, drivers fail to pay attention to cyclists on the roadway, even though they have the legal right to be there (as long as they obey traffic laws). It is not uncommon for a driver to strike a cyclist while trying to pass them on the side of the road. We also encounter many accidents in pedestrian and cyclist crosswalks and on bike paths.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a bicycle accident due to the negligent actions of another driver, you need to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., we have the knowledge and experience you need to get through this. We will thoroughly investigate what happened in order to secure the compensation you deserve.
