Research out of Australia identifies that better roads are essential for minimizing the number of bicycle accidents occurring. Unfortunately, bad roads can cause problems with pedestrians, motorcyclists, vehicle drivers and bicyclists.
This is because potholes or other degrading road conditions can cause someone to lose control of their bike and this can lead to severe injuries. Someone who loses control of their bike or a car driver who loses control of their vehicle and is unable to swerve out of the way of an accident quickly, could strike someone else and cause multiple car pileup incidents. These incidents are often associated with severe injuries and can lead to catastrophic problems for the future.
Identification of the right personal injury attorney is essential for being able to move forward after an accident like this. Unfortunately, bicycle accidents happen with alarming severity in very populated areas, including San Diego. Despite better knowledge about bike safety, the tools that can be used to avoid accidents with cyclists and roads that are increasingly incorporating bike lanes, vehicle accidents involving bicycles are only becoming more common. Many advocates in San Diego and other major cities argue that it is the responsibility of people who manage the roads, to keep an eye on these dangerous conditions and do everything possible to cut down on the chance that someone will be hurt.
For many cyclists who have already suffered in an accident, this is too little too late because the person who is hurt may never be able to fully recover from their injuries. Anyone hurt in an accident deserves the peace of mind provided by an attorney who has been working in this field for many years.
