Bicycle Accidents in Connecticut
Bicycle accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents that take place on our roads. This is due to the fact that bicyclists have few protections from harm, which means that they are more likely to sustain serious injuries and even lose their lives in these accidents. In 2018 alone, it was reported that approximately 857 bicyclists were killed in fatal accidents and many others were injured. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, it is important that you have the help of an attorney on your side.
