Trussville, AL - Bicyclist Injured in Crash on Gadsden Hwy

Riding a bicycle is a great pastime enjoyed by many people in Alabama. Unfortunately, cyclists have limited protection on the road, even when wearing all the recommended safety equipment. A substantial number of riders are hurt and killed in car crashes each year. Nine people lost their lives and 209 people were injured in bicycle crashes in a recent year in Alabama, according to the Alabama Traffic Crash Facts. That year, cyclists were at fault in over half of all bicycle collisions. Roughly 14 percent of bicycle collisions happen on rural roads, while 86 percent happen on city streets. It can be difficult to achieve a full recovery on your own after a serious bicycle crash. You should consult with a qualified lawyer to pursue a strong personal injury claim.

Because bike riders are so vulnerable and have no protection from the impact of the vehicle other than a helmet, bicycle accidents frequently result in death or extremely serious injuries to the riders. There is a greater chance of accidents on the streets when there are more cyclists. When an accident happens, the rider is in serious danger. The driver and any passengers are usually right. A biker may sustain injuries even if they are not hit. Injuries are not always the consequence of a collision. Occasionally, a cyclist may swerve, lose balance, and collapse if a car veers too close.
