Cleveland Bicycle Commuting
According to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation, one out of every 213 commuters travel to work primarily by bicycle in Cleveland. Nationally, there was a 43 percent increase in bicycle commuting between 2000 and 2008. In an effort to accommodate these bicycle commuters, the city of Cleveland initiated “Bike Rack,” which offers convenient parking and other amenities to bike commuters. For those who do choose to bike to work, the fastest way by vehicle is not always the safest route for cyclists. Make sure to pre-plan your route to avoid high-traffic areas, as well as streets with no bike lanes or little room for bicyclists to maneuver safely.
In a state where bicyclists have an equal claim to the roadways, it is difficult to believe that people often side with the driver of the motor vehicle involved in a bicycle accident. Even when bicyclists are obeying the law, prospective jurors will often put themselves in the place of the drivers who hit them and not the injured victim. If you've been injured in a bicycle accident, you need experienced, aggressive attorneys who will fight to obtain the compensation you deserve. Our Cleveland bicycle accident lawyers can arrange a free consultation with you.
