Bicycle Accident Lawyer Philadelphia
The continued popularity of bicycles is driven by a variety of factors. They provide a fun and effective method of exercise, they function as a cheap and environmentally friendly means of transportation and they give a level of freedom of movement for children too young to drive. The dense layout of Philadelphia functions as a haven for cyclists, who can access a significant number of locations with relative ease.
However, though they are rarely the fault of the cyclist, every year hundreds of bicycle accidents occur in the city of Philadelphia alone. These accidents are often the result of motorists either failing to notice the bicycles with which they share the road, failing to give them sufficient room, or driving at an unsafe distance and speed. They can result in serious injuries, which may include:
