Bicycle Accidents in Ohio
Everyone who heads out on Cleveland roadways expects to make it from one location to the next without any problems. Regrettably, this is not always the case. In fact, thousands of people become involved in crashes before they reach their destinations. Being involved in a traffic-related incident of any type can have a damaging impact on a person’s health and wellbeing. Bicycle accidents are particularly detrimental as they often result in severe damages for victims. When small children and elderly individuals are involved in these accidents, there is a heightened risk of brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.
Although there are numerous things we can do to protect ourselves from being harmed in accidents, the unfortunate truth is that driver errors account for over 80% of traffic accidents each year in the country. Pedestrian and bicycle accidents are particularly brutal, claiming the lives of more than 5,000 people while leaving over 75,000 others seriously injured. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident as a result of another person’s actions, it is crucial that you reach out to a bicycle accident attorney in Cleveland as soon as possible.
