In the Warwick and Providence areas, biking is popular with college students, recreational bikers and, of course, children. It can be a dangerous activity, however, because most towns were built to accommodate cars.

Our Bicycle Accident Attorneys Seek The Compensation You Need After An Accident
Most bicycle accidents occur when a car, truck or bus hits the cyclist. Negligent drivers usually fail to see bicyclists until it is too late. Accidents are often caused by drivers who are speeding, running a stop sign, backing out without looking or opening a car door without looking. These accidents are especially common near intersections, playgrounds, schools and driveways.
Bicycle accident victims may suffer catastrophic injuries that require multiple surgeries, lengthy recoveries and rehabilitative therapy. Injuries can include:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
In the worst bike accidents, wrongful death may be the result.
