Like a number of cities throughout the country, Philadelphia has a large and growing bicycle population. With gas costs on the rise and eco-friendly alternatives like biking available, there has been a cultural shift away from the motorized vehicles.
Yet even with many safety measures in place, from bike helmets and reflectors to biking lanes on major streets, bicycle accidents still occur at an overwhelming rate.
There are times when careless drivers neglect the rights of a bicyclist to be on the road and cause an accident. Because the physical nature of biking leaves little protection, these types of accidents can result in serious injuries like limb loss, severe scarring, or disfigurement, and can even lead to death.
