Why Are Bikes Becoming More Popular to Ride?
Bicycling has seen a dramatic increase in popularity as Americans become more health conscious. Unfortunately along with the increase in popularity, there has been a substantial increase in the number of accidents leading to serious injury or death. Even though, bicycle accidents frequently occur at intersections or crosswalks, figures confirm as traffic becomes more congested, cycling accidents along roadways are also on the rise.
On an annual basis, nearly 52,000 American cyclists are injured in collisions with motor vehicles, with over 700 of these accidents resulting in fatalities. Head injuries account for a vast majority of all serious injuries and deaths from bicycle mishaps. Other than helmets, bicyclists have no real protection against injuries.
Unfortunately, in too many cases, cycling accidents occur as a result of driver negligence. Collisions involving motor vehicles are generally caused by numerous factors. Irresponsible motor vehicle operators are often found guilty of falling asleep at the wheel, giving less than their full attention to the road, or driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or they are simply road ragers who should be locked up.
Accident victims often find themselves unable to work, leaving no means to pay the rapid accumulation of mounting medical expenses. In addition to the limitations which have been placed upon their lifestyle, victims of another’s careless actions should not have to worry about these added expenses.
