Most Common Bike Crashes

Crashes that involve kids are different from those involving adults. Kids below age eight don’t have the same sense of danger that adults have. By understanding the most common crashes involving children and adults you can avoid dangerous situations and more effectively prepare your kids to ride safely. I pray that none of these things happen to you or your children.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a car/bike accident please contact my office as soon as possible to protect your claims. Sometimes the police ticket the bicyclist rather than the wrongdoer. Don’t despair if this has happened to you. Who got the ticket is not important (and inadmissible in court) to ultimately determine fault.
