Riding a bicycle is an environmentally friendly method of transportation, and it’s good exercise. But what do you do if you’ve been injured in a bike accident? Someone’s car door opened and you had no room to maneuver; a driver made a sudden turn in front of you without looking both ways. Now you’re hurt and you’re looking at medical costs that you’re going to have trouble paying because you’re losing wages by being unable to work. Hinkle Law Offices can help you get the compensation you deserve if you’ve been injured in a bike accident.
The Cost of Bike Accidents
The average cost of a bicycle accident that incurred injuries in 2012 was nearly $50,000. That’s nearly what the average United States family makes as a median income in a single year. A single accident can put a family into enormous debt that takes months to escape. And that’s not even counting the time required to heal from injuries. Broken bones, torn ligaments, damaged joints and concussions are all common bike accident injuries.
Why should you pay for something you had no control over? It’s difficult enough to move on after a bike accident has caused injuries that will take months to fully heal. You shouldn’t be worried that your savings account will be drained due to expenses someone else has caused.
