Heading out on your bike allows you the freedom to enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery in Hollywood, but it also leaves you far more susceptible to being injured in a dangerous traffic accident. Because nothing comes between you and the immense impact of a bike accident, it’s important to put safety at the forefront. If another driver’s negligence does leave you injured, 388CEDA offers the comprehensive medical care and pain management you need to help you recover. Further, because obtaining just compensation can play an important part in your recovery, we can also recommend an experienced bicycle accident lawyer in Hollywood upon your request that we do so.
When you’re pedaling around Hollywood, you’re far more vulnerable to being injured in a traffic accident for all of the following reasons:
Bike accidents happen, and they are often the result of negligent drivers who fail to accommodate for cyclists like you on the road.
Drunk drivers experience cognitive and physical and even sensory (in the form of vision distortions) impairments that leave them among the most dangerous drivers on our roadways. A drunk driver can cut a bicyclist’s life short in the blink of an eye.
Distracted drivers fail to pay adequate attention to the road ahead, and because you’re more difficult to see when you’re on your bike in the first place, driver distraction puts you in an especially dangerous position. The most dangerous distraction of all – and the distraction that is quickly becoming the most common – is texting. Motorists who text behind the wheel essentially drive blind for stretches at a time, and this does not bode well for bicyclists.
When motorists speed or drive too fast to safely account for the condition of the road, they make accidents more likely, and they help to ensure that those accidents will be deadly. Excess speed often proves deadly, and if you’re involved in a speed-related accident when you’re on your bike, life-threatening injuries become that much more likely.
When you’re drowsy, it’s more difficult to concentrate on the task at hand; and the more exhausted you are, the more likely you are to experience impairments that are similar to those of drunk drivers. In other words, drowsy drivers are dangerous drivers who put bicyclists like you at extreme risk.
If a motorist’s negligence leaves you injured in a bicycle accident, you can expect your damages to be considerable.
The medical expenses associated with a serious bike accident can include all of the following:
At 388CEDA, we offer a full range of medical care for accident victims like you.
While you attend to the important job of healing from the injuries you’ve suffered, you’ll likely miss work and experience a decrease in earnings (as you face mounting medical costs). If your injuries are extensive, you could be looking at a decrease in earnings into your future – and even to an altered career path.
While the financial losses you experience tend to be fairly straightforward, the emotional and physical pain and suffering associated with a violent bike accident can be life-altering. In fact, many accident victims suffer PTSD-like symptoms that continue to haunt them and are extremely difficult to overcome.
Bike accidents are among the most dangerous accidents on our roads, and at 388CEDA, we offer a comprehensive range of medical care and pain management techniques to help you on the journey toward recovery. We can also recommend – upon your request – a trusted bicycle accident lawyer in Hollywood who can skillfully advocate on behalf of your best interests.
