Even when every precaution is taken, bike accidents can still happen in and around Philadelphia. Riders assume some risk when they ride, and many accidents are due to the negligence of other drivers. Unfortunately, bike accident injuries can be severe because riders are open to the road. With the help of one of our bicycle accidents lawyers from Master Weinstein Moyer, P.C., we can represent you while you take the necessary time to heal and recover.
When a bike accident takes place, it is most often because of the recklessness, carelessness, or negligence of someone else. When this happens, the rider has the right to seek compensation for their injuries and damages sustained because of said accident. According to Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, “as a vehicle, you have a right to ride on the shoulder or the appropriate travel lane, and you will need to assert that right by using lane control.” By practicing proper riding, you can try to prevent a bike accident from happening.
There are a variety of injuries that one can sustain during a bicycle accident. Some of the most common injuries include road rash, broken bones, spinal injuries, concussions, brain injuries, and more. Our experienced bicycle accidents legal team can investigate your accident and document your injuries to get you the compensation you deserve as a result of your accident.
