Bicycle Accidents in Connecticut
Bicyclists are some of the most at-risk parties on our roads due to the fact that they have no protection from harm. When involved in a collision with a larger vehicle, a bicyclist could be seriously harmed. In 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 857 bicyclists were killed in fatal accidents throughout the U.S. and many others were injured. In the blink of an eye, your life could be turned upside-down if you have been hurt in a bicycle accident that is not your fault. It is crucial that you speak with a legal advocate who has your best interests in mind.
