All auto accidents can result in devastating personal injuries, but accidents involving a car and a bicycle or pedestrian can have especially serious consequences. To avoid a collision, always wear reflective gear, keep your bike in good condition, and wear a helmet in case of injury. Sometimes drivers simply don’t see bikers, so it’s important to get a headlight if you are riding at night. Make sure to slow down when you approach an intersection, and consider riding on the road rather than the sidewalk to avoid crosswalk accidents.
Being hurt in a car accident is scary, but a personal injury attorney who has experience handling auto accidents can stand up for your rights.
