Bicycle Accidents in New Jersey
Around 130,000 bicyclists are hurt in motor vehicle collisions across the United States every year. The total damages of bicycle accidents in the United States exceed $23 billion annually. Far too often, these accidents are a result of negligent drivers. Many bicycle accidents take place as a result of drivers who are under the influence of alcohol, speeding, impaired by drugs, or otherwise negligent while behind the wheel.
When drivers fail to operate their vehicles safely and responsibly, they can cause severe harm to other people. Bicyclists, in particular, are more likely to suffer severe injuries as a result of their accidents. This is due to the fact that they are unprotected during their collisions. Bicyclists are likely to suffer from trauma to the head, internal organ injuries, severe compound fractures, and other significant injuries due to accidents.
Dealing with the aftermath of a bicycle accident can be incredibly difficult. In many instances, bicyclists have to go through extensive medical treatment and spend weeks in recovery.
