Norfolk Bicycle Accidents Lawyers
Though cycling is an environmentally-friendly, health-conscious method of transportation, cyclists are, unfortunately, at risk of sustaining serious injuries when a driver is not attentive. Drivers should always be aware of cyclists and take the proper precautions to avoid an accident.
When a cyclist is involved in an accident with a vehicle, the cyclist’s resulting injuries are often far more serious than the driver’s injuries.
