I Was Injured While Riding My Bike
Today more people are riding bicycles than ever. Cycling is a healthy hobby, a fun way to hang out with friends, and an easy way to travel around town.
While Louisiana is striving to become more bicycle-friendly by adding more bike lanes, much of the time bicycles and cars are forced to share the same road. This can make it difficult for bike riders and drivers to coexist. No matter how careful you are when you ride your bicycle, you can still be hit by a distracted driver.
When a person on a bicycle gets hit by a 4000 lbs. car, the results can be devastating for the cyclist. According to a 2019 safety research report by the National Transportation Safety Board, Louisiana has the second-highest bicyclist fatality rate.
