Our thoughts are extended to the parties injured in this accident.
Due to Arizona’s climate, more bicycle accidents will happen across the state than many other states in the U.S. Unfortunately, as bicycling becomes more and more popular on our roads, the number of bicycle accidents continues to rise. The National Traffic Highway Administration said that, in 2011 alone, approximately 48,000 bicyclists were injured in these accidents across the country, some of which took place due to negligent drivers. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you can benefit greatly from speaking to a skilled Arizona personal injury attorney about your case.
