Little Rock Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Despite the many numerous benefits of bicycle riding today, there still remains a significant underlying risk that every person takes on when riding: the possibility of a severe bicycle accident. Due to the small size and lack of safety features, bicycles offer the rider no real protection against automobiles in the event of a collision. In most cases the only protection that a rider has is a reliable helmet, which still cannot compete with the sheer mass of even the smallest of automobiles. At the Law Office of Thomas G. Buchanan, our experienced Little Rock bicycle accident attorneys have the extensive litigation knowledge needed to make your personal injury case a success. Contact us today if the negligence of another driver was the cause for you or a loved one’s personal injury.
Almost all serious bicycle accidents occur when a car or truck strikes an unsuspecting cyclist. Even at relatively slow speeds, the amount of force transferred to the rider is enough to cause a catastrophic injury or wrongful death. Automobile drivers owe a duty of care to those they share the roads with, and when they choose to breach this duty they are said to be acting negligently and can put the safety of others (especially bicyclists) at serious risk. Our law office aggressively pursues compensation for those injured or tragically killed in bicycle accidents. Speak with one of our elite Little Rock bicycle accident attorneys today to discuss the specifics of your case.
It should be noted that while most bicycle accidents are the result of a collision with a motor vehicle, a number do occur as a result of unknown dangers in the rider’s path. These dangers can be an improperly maintained sidewalk, parking lot, or intersection. If a party fails to maintain the safe use of these areas for cyclists and someone is injured, a premises liability suit can be filed against them.
Due to their small size and lack of safety features, bicycles offer basically no protection to the rider when a crash takes place. Drivers of automobiles sit behind one or more tons of metal, glass, and airbags —- cyclists share none of these luxuries and incur serious personal injury or even die in these types of accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2008 alone there were a reported 600 pedestrian / cyclist fatalities statewide. Our top bicycle injury attorneys have successfully represented victims who have experienced the following in bicycle accidents:

- Crush Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
