Article Summary: Bicycle Accident Injury

Bicycle accidents are on the upswing. As we move from the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are working from home and using their bicycles more. Everyone rides a bicycle. Whether for exercise, going to work or simply getting outside, bike riding is increasing across the country. Of course, with more bicyclists on the road, there are more bike accidents. Therefore, bicycle accident victims need to know how to find a bicycle accident injury attorney.


How Common Are Bike Accidents?


Bike riders can get seriously injured in bicycle crashes. Indeed, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), reported that 857 bicyclists died in U.S. traffic accidents in 2018. In fact, The National Safety Council reported that bicycle accident deaths increased to 1,260 in 2020.

Obviously, since bicyclists have no protection, other than a helmet, bicycle accident cases frequently involve serious injuries to the bike rider.

The NHSTA reported in a recent year that there were 49,000 bicycle accident injury incidents.
