Why Bicycle Accident Victims Should Consult with a Personal Injury Attorney in Las Vegas from Greenman, Goldberg, Raby and Martinez
When victims of bicycle accidents suffer devastating injuries because a driver was negligent, a personal injury attorney in Las Vegas, from Greenman, Goldberg, Raby and Martinez can protect their legal right to recover financial compensation.
Cyclists are at a huge disadvantage in a bicycle versus motor vehicle collision. While those who wear helmets can greatly reduce the risk of suffering a catastrophic head injury, bicycle accidents frequently result in the cyclist suffering multiple physical injuries, including broken bones, lacerations and severe abrasions.
Motorists and cyclists must obey the same basic rules of the road but drivers are required by law to do certain things to ensure cyclists are safe. These include:
- Yielding the right of way to bicycles
- Avoiding bike lanes, including while driving through intersections
- Passing cyclists only when it is safe to do so
- Allowing lawful bicycle riders to proceed without interference
