Bicycle Accidents

When a crash involving a bicycle and a motor vehicle results in injuries, it is often assumed the cyclist is at fault. However, statistics show that is a misconception and motorists are more often to blame.

With bicycle accident fatalities accounting for 2 percent of all traffic-related deaths, our bicycle accident attorney at the Zappitell Law Firm take these cases very seriously. We know anytime injuries result from the recklessness and negligence of a driver, it is grounds to pursue a claim for compensation.
