Bicycle Injury Lawyers
Bicycles have very much come into their own over the past few decades. Their popularity stems partly from the fact that there is very little cost involved with operating and maintaining them, and the fact that they are excellent choices for recreation. The downside to bicycles, however, is that they can be extremely dangerous, particularly when operated around motor vehicles. Collisions, falls, and other accidents are common, and the result is all too often serious injury. Should you be injured in a bicycle accident it is very important that you work with a personal injury attorney. Nadrich & Cohen, LLP has decades of success representing clients just like you.

Research has shown that while cyclists at times are careless and place themselves at risk, at least as often motorists drive in ways that are dangerous to the rider. Among the dangers cyclists face in the presence of motor vehicles are:
One may wonder why many of these situations occur. In some cases motorists have admitted that they hate bicycles and were taking their anger out on a cyclist. Much more often, however, drivers seem simply to not see the bicycle.
