Bicycle Accidents in North Carolina
Bicycle accidents do not happen as commonly as other accidents on North Carolina roads. However, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most horrific injuries than any other accident. Every year in North Carolina, approximately 1,000 bicyclists are involved in accidents, with many of these victims sustaining injuries. Though these accidents do not always cause injuries, a large percentage of victims are catastrophically injured and wonder where they can turn. On average, approximately 20 people will be killed in these accidents in the state of North Carolina.
Many people who are injured in bicycle accidents are unsure about where they can turn after they have been injured in one of these accidents. Bicycle accidents are some of the most horrific accidents on our roads, especially when they occur with a large passenger vehicle. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have few protections from harm. Many individuals wonder how they will receive the compensation they deserve after an accident that is not their fault.
