Bicyclists Deserve Safer Roads
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2019, almost 850 bicyclists died in road accidents, and thousands more suffered serious, life-altering injuries. Driver negligence and an unwillingness to pay attention to bicyclists on the road means that bikers are at very high risk for injury and death. But you are not alone; our nation is fighting to make the roads safer for bikes, and Jacobs & Wallace, PLLC, is on your side.
Our attorneys are well-known across Connecticut for our commitment to victim advocacy. We will fight to get you the compensation that you deserve for your pain and for your suffering.
Why Bicyclists Are At Greater Risk
Simply put, bicyclists do not have the same protections as individuals inside cars or trucks. Drivers, even on slow roads, are less likely to see bicyclists or to give them appropriate road space, leading to the dangerous conditions bikers face. Even with appropriate safety gear, bike riders are more likely to suffer from compound fractures, internal bleeding, brain damage and death.
You may be able to reduce your risk for accident by biking with, not against, traffic. You can also take steps like using all appropriate hand signals, wearing proper headwear and remaining vigilant about road conditions. But you cannot control the drivers on the road. You deserve aggressive and compassionate attorneys who will fight to obtain all of the compensation for your losses that you deserve. Our attorneys are dedicated to your rights and your needs, and we will use our extensive legal knowledge to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
