Indianapolis Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Indianapolis Bike Accident Lawyers Serving Injury Victims Across Central Indiana
Bicycling is good exercise while also being environmentally friendly. Bicyclists have most of the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. Unfortunately, some motorists are unable or unwilling to fully share the road with bicyclists. Too many times, bicyclists are severely injured due to a motorist’s negligent action. Although bicycle helmets reduce the risk of head injuries, bicyclists have no other protections against motor vehicles. Consequently, bicycle injuries can be very severe and can include orthopedic injuries, knee and leg injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
