As more and more people have begun to turn to bicycles as a cheap alternative to other forms of transportation, bicycle accidents have become an increasing problem. Unfortunately, because of how exposed bicyclists are when sharing the road with cars and other motor vehicles, the injuries that can occur as a result of a bicycle accident are extremely severe, if not life-threatening.
Sadly, as our team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® is all too aware, many bicycle accidents in Racine occur as a result of other people’s negligence, from reckless drivers to negligent municipal agencies. In these circumstances, injury victims are able to pursue a personal injury claim that may provide them with the compensation needed to help cope with medical costs and other expenses relating to the accident.
The injuries that can result from a bicycle accident can be just as serious as those that may occur in a car or truck accident, depending on the circumstances. In fact, some of the more common injuries that victims are left to deal with in the wake of a bicycle accident include:
Bicycle accident victims shouldn’t have to cope with these and other injuries on their own. Rather, it should be the party that caused the accident that shoulders the burden of the consequences of the accident.
If you have been the victim of a bicycle accident caused by someone else, you may be able to seek compensation for your damages. At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, our lawyers know just how devastating a bicycle accident can be and are dedicated to helping victims pursue the compensation they need.
