Bicycling is a very popular hobby in our sunny state. Whether it be the Suncoast Trail or Withlacoochee State Trail, cyclists in Hernando county have plenty of options for riding. However, trail riding is not where bicycle accidents normally occur.
Bicycle accidents are normally the result of careless drivers who fail to pay attention to their surroundings while driving. While cyclists are required to follow the rules of the road anddo so, they are still very much at risk from a driver’s negligence. In 2015, 818 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles. Bicycle accidents can cause terrible injuries so wearing a helmet is absolutely necessary whenever you ride.
Bicycle accidents, much like auto accidents, can disrupt your regular way of life. They can detrimentally affect you going to work, taking care of your family, and your own well-being.
Receiving proper compensation for the injuries that someone’s carelessness caused is something that an experienced attorney can help with. If you or your loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, please call the Law Office of John R. Vitola.
