Bicycle Accident Attorney | Charlotte

 

Now that both North and South Carolina families have been functioning under stay-at-home orders due to COVID-19 for over a month, more folks are participating in outdoor activities like bicycling. It is beautiful to see so many families and friends outside riding bikes; however with more people cycling, the risk of injury increases.

 

With the decline of automobile traffic, the roads have become more appealing to cyclists. However, bicycle injuries go beyond the occasional bruise from a pedal or scraped knee; many can be very serious and even deadly. Following bicycle safety and traffic, rules are of utmost importance to keep you and your family safe. 

 

Here are 3 tips on bicycle safety:

 

           • Wear the proper equipment for protection and to increase visibility. Be sure you have a helmet, bright clothing, reflective gear and lights or reflectors that make others aware of you.

           • Always ride in the same direction as automobile traffic and if you are in a group, ride single file.

           • Never wear earbuds or headphones while riding a bike. In addition to being distracted by music or other audio, this impairs your hearing and ultimately could cause a bike accident.

While no one wants to be involved in a bicycle accident, 857 people were killed in bike accidents in 2018. These accidents all involved motor vehicles and were primarily caused by distracted drivers – both cyclists and vehicle operators – who “just didn’t see” the other person.

 

Protect yourself and your family by following bicycle safety. If you or a family member suffers from the unfortunate event of a severe bicycle accident, it may be time to contact an experienced bicycle accident attorney. At Campbell & Associates, we understand the serious nature of a bicycle accident and know that often bike injuries have lasting consequences, both medically and financially.
