By their nature, bicycles offer little protection from other motorists or the road. Given the vulnerability of riders, it is not surprising that the injuries resulting from bicycle accidents can be severe, even fatal.
A bicyclist injured in an accident with a car is often believed to be at fault. Bike accident attorneys at Duff & Kronfeld, P.C. search out the facts so that the entire story is told and the responsible party is held accountable.
