Baton Rouge Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Bicycle Accident Injuries and Claims in Baton Rouge
It's no secret that there are more automobiles on the road than bicycles. Although bicycle use is mainly limited to exercise, hobby or close-proximity travel, bicyclists have rights on the road and others sharing the roads and streets often ignore these rights. As much as motor vehicle drivers may be aware that a bicyclist has some right to the road, they often ignore the guidelines that every driver should follow to maintain proper safety when bicycles and motor automobiles share the road. As children use bikes as their main mode of transportation, there are many tragic cases of injury or loss of life involving young people who are innocent and suddenly hit by a car or truck at no fault of their own.
Experienced Injury Attorney in Baton Rouge
Some of the most common personal injuries occur in bicycle accidents where the driver of a motor vehicle clips the bicyclist while riding on the side of the road, or turns into the path of a bicyclist crossing an intersection. Responsible bicyclists wear protection such as helmets, elbow-pads and knee-pads. These measures are meant to protect a bicyclist in a fall, but provide little protection in the event of a collision with a car or truck. Victims of bicycle accidents often suffer broken bones, severe head trauma resulting in head or brain injury, or internal injuries.
