New Jersey Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Many people ride bicycles as a form of transportation or for recreation. There are rules and regulations in New Jersey to protect bicyclists from collisions with cars, but each year thousands of people become seriously injured or are killed from collisions with cars or from single rider accidents caused by unsafe roadways.

Bicycle accidents can cause serious injuries and even death. Even if proper safety gear is worn, accident victims can sustain brain injuries, neck, and spinal cord damage. Riders could also receive serious road rash, broken bones, and fractures. If you have been hurt in a bicycle accident, you may be eligible for compensation. The New Jersey bicycle accident attorneys at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm are able to help you understand your legal options.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 818 bicyclists killed and an additional 45,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes in 2015. The total cost of bicyclist injury and death is over $4 billion per year according to the National Safety Council. The majority of cyclists' deaths occurred between the hours of 4 p.m. and 7:59 p.m. Sadly, many of these deaths and injuries could be prevented by drivers being attentive to the road.
