Las Vegas’ #1 Bicycle Accident Attorney
In recent years, biking has become one of the most popular sports worldwide; more people have begun commuting to work on bicycles, or going for a ride to a coffee shop in their spare time. However, when bikes share the road with motor-vehicles, accidents are more likely to occur. Bicycle accidents can often be more devastating when they involve motor-vehicles, because the size and weight of the bicycle is significantly smaller than that of motor-vehicles on the road. When accidents occur, cyclists often receive heavier impacts than any motorist involved.
Bicycle injuries require an experienced lawyer, as the regulation of cyclists on the road can be complex and confusing. Most people, including the authorities, may not be aware of the laws regulating the use of bicycles on the road.
