Each year, more than 500,000 people in the US are treated in emergency departments...as a result of a bike related injury (CDC). Bicycle accident injuries can be severe and the issues of negligence even more complex. As a cyclist it is imperative to know where liability and fault lies to protect yourself in case of an accident.
If you are ever in the unfortunate position of being the victim of a car accident, you could face many challenges including but not limited to physical and financial damages. One of the most important things to remember is that YOU are your best advocate which means you can also be your own worst enemy.
