Norfolk is a great place to ride your bicycle, but it’s not always the safest. From road hazards to careless drivers, there are a number of dangers cyclists have to avoid every time they climb onto their bikes. As we come into one of the busiest driving seasons of the year, it’s important that cyclists’ rights to the road be upheld and protected, and that’s exactly what we plan to do at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers.
Every bicycle accident in Norfolk has one thing in common: someone is to blame. In some cases, it’s the cyclists’ fault, but most often, we’ve found that bicycle accidents occur due to the negligence of property owners, the city, or other drivers. In each of those instances, the victim should be entitled to compensation for their injuries. When a property owner fails to maintain safe conditions for areas used by cyclists and an accident occurs, the victim should be entitled to compensation. When the city causes or fails to repair road hazards and an accident occurs, the victim should be entitled to compensation. When a careless driver hits a cyclist due their own negligence, the victim should be entitled to compensation.
