Grants Pass Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Bikes are a dependable and convenient way to get around. Not to mention they are good for the environment and for our health! While Grants Pass has no shortage of beautiful country roads and scenic back highways, there is a shortage of bike lanes and more bikes on the road means more bike accidents and injuries. Unfortunately, most bicycle accidents involve a collision with a bus, car, truck or other moving vehicle. Sadly, the cyclist is at greater risk of incurring more severe injuries during an accident, and statistically the crash is rarely their fault.
Some common causes of bicycle accidents are:
Auto drivers and bicyclists crossing into or across the path of one another
Children riding their bike too fast or without being mindful of their surroundings
As is true for so many accident victims, many bicycle riders don’t always realize the true impact of the accident and the injuries they’ve sustained.
