Berks County Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Bike riding has become more commonplace in Berks County over the past decade from the more rural areas of Hamburg, the more suburban towns of Wyomissing and Shillington to the city of Reading, Pennsylvania. One of the biggest developments has been that people use bikes to get around more often than before to go to work and run errands locally. Unfortunately, this has led to more people getting involved in bike accidents, which are often much more serious than other kinds of crashes because bikers have very little protection.
This is why the personal injury attorneys at The Brod Law Firm represent victims of cycling accidents in and around the Berks County area.

Bicycle Riding Is on the Rise
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, between 2001 and 2009, the number of bicycle trips in the United States increased by 25%. However, these figures look at America as a whole. Cities have seen biking explode in popularity as residents look to avoid the costs of parking or car ownership and the stress of inner-city commuting, all while helping the environment and getting lots of exercise.
Bicycle Accidents and Injuries Are Serious
Unfortunately, cycling infrastructure has not caught up with the recent trend of biking. A lack of dedicated and buffered bike lanes has left many cyclists riding right alongside traffic, putting them at serious risk of a cycling accident.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 900 cyclists were killed and nearly 500,000 went to the emergency room in the United States in 2013 alone.
These accidents often result in severe or even fatal injuries to bikers. Because they have very little protection in a collision, and because cars and trucks are made of metal and are so much heavier than cyclists, bikers often suffer severe injuries in even low-speed accidents. The CDC found that accidents that happened in 2010 that involved bikers resulted in lifetime costs of and estimated $10 billion to the cyclists. This is why the attorneys at The Brod Law Firm work to represent injured bicycle riders whenever they are hurt in or around the Berks County area. Biking benefits the community and the world in numerous ways, and cyclists who take the initiative to get on their bikes should be protected in as many ways as possible.
