Bicycle Accidents

With more and more people in Connecticut turning to bicycles for entertainment, exercise and transportation, there has been an marked increase in bicycle accidents, often leading to severe injuries or death.  Most towns and cities do not provide marked bicycle lanes and drivers of motorized vehicles do not understand that they must share the road with cyclists.  Even where there are bicycle lanes, drivers do not always follow traffic rules or respect cyclists.  Sometimes bicycle lanes and bike paths are unsafe or have not been properly maintained.  In other instances, your bicycle or helmet may be defective leading to an accident or a more severe injury.  When there are multiple causes to an accident, there may be numerous responsible parties and types of claims.
