Bicycling can be a fun activity for kids, and they are an efficient form of travel for adults, whether for fitness or pleasure. Unfortunately, in the world of double lane roads, crowded streets, and cell phones, riding a bike can be very dangerous, as well. Bicycles provide no protection for the operator, and studies have shown that the largest percentage of injuries occur to the head. Fortunately, many studies have also shown that helmets help prevent injuries, including catastrophic injuries.
At Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg, LLP we are proud to have donated 100’s of bike helmets to area children over the years. It is our mission to help keep local kids and cyclists safe, and we take any bike injury case that we are contacted on as a top priority. Bicycling should always start with wearing a helmet and knowing the rules of the road for bicyclists. Cyclists should wear bright clothing, and always be on the “lookout”, as even the safest bicyclist is often unable to avoid car that cannot or does not know they are there.
If you, a family member or friend have been injured while riding a bike, it is important to contact a law firm experienced in handling bike injury cases, like Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg.
