Bicycle accidents during Memorial Day weekend

Many people enjoy celebrating Memorial Day, and Americans across the country recently celebrated this holiday with their loved ones. Warmer temperatures and the unofficial start of summer brought many people together to enjoy barbecues, go to the beach and ride their bicycles. Unfortunately, this also brings the chance of a bicycle accident, which may be especially likely due to drunk driving and busy traffic. If you were involved in a bike accident during the holiday weekend, you may be struggling with a number of serious challenges.

Not only can a bicycle accident shatter someone’s holiday celebrations, but the consequences may continue to turn their life upside down in different ways. They may lose the ability to work because of an injury they sustained after being hit by a car, or they may develop mental trauma that prevents them from riding their bicycle ever again. It is very unfortunate that many of these accidents are caused by careless drivers and those who do not obey traffic laws. Our law office firmly believes that drivers who collide with bicyclists or cause a bicyclist to become injured or killed because of their erratic driving should not be let off the hook.

When a bicyclist is struck by a vehicle, they may be especially vulnerable, especially if the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed. Worse, some drivers flee after causing a crash, in which case it is imperative for bicyclists and their loved ones to do everything they can to track down the reckless driver.
