Reducing Bicycle Accidents
Unfortunately, when it comes to reducing bicycle accidents there is very little you, as a bicyclist, can do. It is often up to cities to take the responsibility to decrease the amount of bike accidents. Bike-friendly infrastructure is one of the biggest ways to increase rider safety. As cycling becomes a more popular means of commuting, cities should focus on updating their infrastructure.
When they don’t, they are often responsible for some of the accidents that riders face. If a non-weather-related road condition caused your accident, it is very possible that the city you were riding in was at fault.
Types of Compensation
Just as in car and motorcycle accidents, you may be eligible for compensation. Bicyclists have every right to the road and thus you have every right to hold negligent motorists, or cities, responsible for the loss of a loved one or the injuries you sustained. You may be able to recover compensation for any of the following damages:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Physical therapy
- Funeral and/or burial expenses
If you think you might be eligible for compensation, or if you are unsure if you are, contact The Bruscato Law Firm today.
