Legal Support After A Bicycle Accident

Bicycling is a major pastime in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. In recent years, we have seen a marked increase in green bike lanes and other efforts to make the city friendlier to cyclists. Unfortunately, this does not always translate into bike riders receiving the full respect they deserve on the road. Bike riders are put at risk because people:

  • Fail to see them
  • Fail to understand the space they should provide to a bicycle rider
  • Operate their vehicles recklessly around them

Bike riders run the risk of being injured in a variety of accidents including:

  • Being doored
  • Being struck by a vehicle
  • Being forced off the road

Bicycle/car accidents can cause very serious injuries. Bicyclists have little in the way of protection from the force of impact when they are struck or strike something. Bike riders often receive secondary injuries when they are thrown and strike pavement, a tree, a lamppost or any other object.
