Cyclist Traffic Injury Lawyers in Lehigh Valley
Lehigh Valley's Expert Team For Cyclists Rights
Cyclists AccidentsCycling has become increasingly popular in the Lehigh Valley and Eastern Pennsylvania. Cycling gets more people out of their cars (less traffic) and uses alternative transportation methods. This reduces traffic and reliance on fossil fuels, directly improving the environment and air quality. The increase in bike lanes in Lehigh Valley and a 12% increase in bicycle sales over the last five years, means there are more cyclists on our roadways. The unfortunate factor of this increase is that we are seeing more cyclist-involved accidents and even deaths.
Cars pose the biggest threat to cyclists, without question!
The numbers are very clear. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, over 3,000 cyclists were killed in auto-involved accidents between 2008 and 2012. Cyclists impacted by an automobile's front end were responsible for 73% of those deaths. Without question, a cyclist is much more likely to be injured or killed by a car than anything else on the road. More often than not, stated "nonvisibility" is the claim by the car driver as the cause of the accident.
