Need Pre Settlement Funding On A Bike Accident Settlement?
Thanks to a resurgence in bicycling’s popularity, cities across the U.S. are making an effort to become more bicycle friendly. Many municipalities are investing the time and money to create segregated bike lanes on popular, busy roads, install bike racks in front of downtown buildings and upgrade their crosswalk systems to better alert drivers when a cyclist is crossing.
A Resurgence in Riders, an Uptick in Fatalities
Despite these various safety measures and cycling accommodations, the U.S. Department of Transportation reported more than 48,000 cyclist injuries in 2011 along with a total of 677 fatalities, an increase of almost 10% over the prior year. These accidents and cyclist fatalities occurred despite the more aggressive safety standards instituted by cities and towns all over the U.S. and despite new and impressive safety equipment available for cyclists to purchase.
Who’s At Fault for Cyclist Injuries?
It’s a sad fact that negligent drivers are often responsible for injuries and fatalities among cyclists. A driver who fails to pay attention before proceeding through crosswalks or who neglects to give a cyclist enough room on the road can cause devastating, even fatal injuries. Cyclists who are lucky enough to live despite their injuries may find that they are no longer able to work the same career they had or, in some cases, may not be able to work at all after the accident. Other injuries are caused instead by faulty safety equipment such as helmets that fail to protect riders the way they’re supposed to.
