Bicycle Accidents in Nevada
Bicyclists are called “vulnerable road users.” Bicyclists are at a high risk of injury if they are involved in an accident. Bicycles use the road or dedicated bicycle lanes, not sidewalks. That means that bicyclists are often vulnerable to vehicles in the same lane. Sadly, drivers do not always pay attention and sometimes they seem to simply not care about sharing the road.
When drivers and bicycles collide, the result is injuries to the bicyclist that may be severe. At Los Hermanos Legales, we have helped clients who have been injured in bicycle accidents involving the following injuries:
- Brain Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Crush Injuries
- Organ Damage
Any of these injuries can change the life of the victim and his or her loved ones. What makes the outcome of bicycle accidents even more disturbing is that they are often caused by the negligence of other drivers. Accidents that are needless and preventable cause tremendous damage to the families involved.
What to do After a Bicycle Accident
When a bicycle accident is caused by the negligence of someone other than the bicyclist, that person should be held accountable. At Los Hermanos Legales, that’s what we do. We help bicycle accident victims and their families get the compensation they deserve after an accident caused by negligence.
