Rome Bicycle Accident
Have you been seriously injured in a bicycle accident that took place due to the negligence of another party? You have many rights when it comes to your case. We wish to extend our condolences to you as nobody should have to experience a bicycle accident on Georgia roads, and we want you to be able to receive a full, easy recovery at this time.
Bicycle accidents involving motor vehicle drivers take place for many reasons on our roads. At times, these accidents occur when drivers are not abiding by traffic signals or giving right-of-way to bicyclists. They can happen at intersections, alongside roadways, and many other areas. Bicyclists have very few protections from harm compared to these motor vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds more. This is why it is important to have help on your side in the event of an accident because the injuries that might follow you can be devastating.
