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:
