Tupelo Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Adam checked the weather one final time before leaving for work. Because it was so sunny, Adam decided to ride his bike to work. After turning on to main street, Adam came to a stop light. When it turned green, he began to pedal when he felt his back tire stuck. The next thing he knew, Adam was on the ground. He had just been hit by a car.
Luckily, Adam’s only injuries were a few broken bones. Not all bicyclists who have been hit are so lucky. Bike riders have many of the same rights as car drivers, but often, those rights aren’t respected. When car and truck drivers don’t respect or acknowledge bicycle rights, the results could be serious injury or even wrongful death.
