Many bicyclists love living and riding on the roadways of Cary because of its beautiful weather, it’s plentiful green spaces, and its easily accessible trails and pathways. While it’s wonderful to be able to enjoy bicycling and the health and wellness benefits it offers, it’s also important to remember that there are risks.

Bicycle accidents happen all too often – and they can have many different causes.

There can be any number of reasons that these accidents occur, but some of the most common causes include:
Those are only a few of many causes of bicycle accidents. Regardless of how the accident occurs, the truth is that if you are a cyclist involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, you are likely going to be the party who sustains the most severe injuries. If you have sustained injuries and damages as a result of a bicycle accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
Depending upon the particular circumstances of your case, various types of compensation might be available. This might include compensation for past, present, and future medical expenses, or payment of lost wages and anticipated lost earnings in the future because you are unable to work. It could include damages for pain and suffering. It might include payment for damage to your bicycle or other personal property as a result of the accident. In the most tragic cases, if you lost a loved one as a result of a bicycle accident, you may even be able to file a wrongful death claim on their behalf.
