As bicycling has grown more popular as a regular mode of transportation, the attentiveness and respect of drivers hasn’t always kept pace. Unfortunately, when a driver’s inattentiveness crosses paths with a bicyclist, it’s usually the cyclist who pays the price. Even the most careful cyclists who wear helmets and abide by all traffic laws can’t be fully protected against the impact of a collision with a vehicle. At DelVecchio & Miller, LLC, our experienced personal injury lawyers fight to protect the rights of Pennsylvania cyclists, and secure maximum compensation for those who have been injured in a bicycle accident.
Vulnerable Cyclists Suffer Severe Injuries
Riding a bike instead of driving a car may be good for the environment, but it’s not good for your body when a negligent driver slams into you. Our firm recognizes that cyclists have a right to the road, and when drivers fail to pay attention and cause harm, cyclists deserve full and fair compensation to pay medical bills, lost wages and other costs related to their injuries. Because of the vulnerability of cyclists compared to drivers, these injuries can be severe, and include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones
- Nerve injuries
- Face and dental injuries
- Permanent scarring and disfigurement
