Cycling and Bicycle Accident Lawsuits
At the Bruner Law Firm, we are prepared to handle cases involving cycling/bicycle accidents. Oftentimes, these cases are fatal and can even result in death. We feel strongly that many of the motorists in our area do not approach cyclists with the care and caution that the law requires. As avid cyclists ourselves, we feel there are numerous legislative and municipal improvements that could be made in our geographic area that would help ensure better safety for all. Although cyclists are generally permitted to drive on roadways, they must exercise the same care as a walking pedestrian if they take to the sidewalks (where legally permitted to do so.) Tinted windows can make it especially troublesome for cyclists and runners as they are not able to make eye contact with a driver, and thus, unable to make a determination whether they have been seen. Tints also make it difficult for the drivers of such vehicles to communicate through facial expressions and other forms of nonverbal communication. It has often been stated that such nonverbal cues make up the bulk of what we are trying to say anyways.
If you, your husband, or you child has been injured on a bicycle, please contact our firm for a free consultation. Although we don’t accept most cases that contact our firm, we can at least get you pointed in the right direction for pursuing any possible claim you may have.
