Attorneys in Wake County Seek Compensation for Injured Cyclists

Bicycles trace their roots back about 200 years. Today, these pedal-powered machines offer an inexpensive, environmentally friendly alternative to motor vehicles, in addition to being common sources of exercise and leisure. Riding a bicycle, however, can also be exceedingly dangerous, especially on the streets and public roads of North Carolina. When drivers make an error with a bicycle nearby, it is often the rider who suffers the most severe consequences.

At the Vasquez Law Firm, PLLC, our attorneys have helped many injured bicycle riders obtain maximum compensation for their injuries. We know that a bicycle accident can have a devastating effect on your life. You may be facing months of medical care and rehabilitation, not to mention mountains of bills despite the fact that you are too injured to work. With this in mind, our lawyers will work hard to get you the compensation you need so that you can begin to put your life back together.

Mecklenburg County Law Firm for Bike Accidents

According to federal estimates, more than 1,000 bicycle riders are killed each year nationwide and nearly half a million more are hurt. In North Carolina, hundreds of cyclists are injured annually to go along with dozens of bicycle-related fatalities.

With a relatively low physical profile, bicycles are often difficult to see, but too often, drivers of cars and trucks are simply not paying close enough attention or sharing the road in a safe manner. When a collision happens, the difference in size and weight and the lack of protection leaves the bicycle rider particularly vulnerable to serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries sustained in bicycle accidents include:

  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBI);
  • Neck and spine damage, including paralysis;
  • Severe nerve damage;
  • Fractured bones;
  • Road rash, cuts, and lacerations; and
  • Injuries to soft tissue, including bruises and contusions.

Depending on the severity of the accident, many injuries sustained in bicycle crashes can be life-threatening or life-altering.
