Similar to motorcyclists, bicyclists are just as vulnerable on the roads. According to the NHTSA, 30% of bicycle accident injuries occur when hit by a vehicle. In addition, these injuries are often the result of the driver not paying attention.
Because of the various dangers bicyclists face on the road, it is important that they possess all protection equipment.
If you or a loved one need legal help following an accident, contact JT Legal Group at (888) 529-3111.
