Bicycle Accident Cases in Atlanta

Many of our Atlanta residents use bicycles to get to work, to school or just for recreation and to improve their health.  Children use them all over the city as their most common form of transportation.  The danger to the bicyclist is extreme when a negligent, speeding or drunk driver causes an injury accident.  In many cases, serious brain damagespinal cord injuries or crushed or broken limbs are the result of the actions of the negligent driver.  Even though bicyclists are often protected by a helmet, this cannot save victims when a car hits them and then subsequently runs over them after the impact.  The helmet can protect to a minor degree, but not enough to avoid serious damage to the innocent victim.  If you or your loved one has been injured in one of these horrifying accidents, it is vital that you contact an Atlanta car accident lawyer to assist with the necessary legal action.

It is dangerous to ride bicycles in Atlanta and the statistics indicate this to be true.  One might suspect that the majority of those injured are children, and although many young people are injured, recent statistics show that the highest percentage of those who lose their lives in such accidents are between the ages of 55 and 64.  The claim or lawsuit filed for compensation for damages must reflect all the damages suffered by the injured or in cases of loss of life, their close family members.

Many more individuals are choosing to use bicycles as exercise, and those who share the road are often inattentive and do not realize that the bicyclist has the same rights to the road as they do.  This is a serious problem in Atlanta, and if you or a loved one has suffered an injury in such an accident, it is vital that you contact our legal team at the Law Office of Neil Flit to help you resolve the serious legal matters surrounding the accident.
