Bicycle Accidents in North Carolina
Though bicycle accidents do not happen as commonly as other collisions on our roads, they are known for being some of the most severe. In one recent year’s time in North Carolina, approximately 1,000 bicycle accidents occurred due to the negligence of others. Serious injuries stem from these accidents including road rash, TBIs, fractures, spinal cord injuries, and more. These injuries tend to land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time in the workplace. If you have been hurt in an accident, you should have the dedicated help of an attorney on your side.
