New Orleans Bike Accident Attorneys
New Orleans is widely viewed as one of the most bike-friendly cities in America, but in a city as packed as ours is with traffic congestion, pedestrians, decaying roads, and construction, bikes can pose risks far beyond what the average cyclist may expect.
Dodging hazards on the road can negate the benefit of bike lanes, and the constant threat of automobiles with drivers distracted by cell phones or navigation devices mean that New Orleans suffers a surprisingly high number of bike accidents and even cyclist deaths every year.
Bike accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, some of which may never fully heal.
Traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, internal injuries, soft tissue damage, and broken bones are all commonly sustained when a cyclist is knocked from their bike through impact with a vehicle or other obstruction.
These injuries can lead to lifelong chronic pain problems, disability, reduced income, and other problems.
It’s vital that if you’ve been the victim of a bike accident in New Orleans, you work with experienced injury attorneys to make sure your future is protected as you recover and try to get your life back.
Some damage may not be immediately apparent, and issues like change in mood or personality may seem like stress from the ordeal but can actually mask more serious neurological trauma.
