“Share the road with a bicyclist” is more than a bumper sticker – it is the law. As more and more of us turn to our bicycles for both transportation and recreation, we are seeing more and more bicycle/car accidents. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, Jacobs Injury Law can help.
A bicyclist safely enjoying the roads and trails doesn’t stand a chance against a driver who isn’t paying attention, isn’t following the rules of the road, or isn’t recognizing the danger they pose as the driver of a vehicle that outweighs a bicycle by thousands of pounds. When a crash occurs, it is important to have an understanding of not only the actions of the car, but also the physics of a collision between the a car and a bicycle. Injuries from these crashes can be severe, including serious head and back injuries, broken bones, “road rash” and so on. Bicyclists are frequently the victims of “hit and runs” with the striking driver claiming they never knew they hit the bicyclists. These cases can pose issues relating to insurance coverage, identity of the drivers, and establishing the applicable laws that were violated.
At Jacobs Injury Law, we understand the physics of these crashes, how they happen, and the injuries bicyclists suffer. We are able to collect and review evidence, obtain witness statements, and work to preserve the scene.
