Bicycle Accidents 

Unfortunately, 1 million children are hospitalized each year for bicycle-related accidents. In this devastating accident, the families of the children injured should have their investigative teams evaluate all aspects surrounding this collision. This includes:

  • Police accident report
  • Driver accident history
  • Any testing of driver for alcohol or drugs
  • Any history of driver with alcohol or drugs
  • Phone and texting records of the driver
  • All Eyewitness accounts of the accident
  • Evaluation why there is no crosswalk on this intersection
  • Accident history on this road
  • Inspection of road conditions and signage
  • Any video evidence of the crash

Bicycle accidents can happen anywhere at any time, but most bicycle accidents can be traced back to an inattentive driver.
