When cars and bicycles collide, you can sustain life-threatening injuries. When you need compensation to recover for those injuries, you can turn to the accident lawyers at Penner Law Firm to help you get back in the saddle again.
Connecticut Accident Statistics
Data gathered by the Department of Transportation found that, between 1960 and present day, car accidents involving bicycles have accounted for one to two percent of fatal car accidents in the United States annually. In Connecticut, the numbers are slightly lower with bicycle/car accidents accounting for only .5 to one percent of fatal car accidents on a yearly basis.
While our state is below the national average for fatal bicycle accidents, we are on par with those that result in serious personal injury. Every year, hundreds of bicyclists are injured in car accidents in Connecticut, and more often than not the victims of these injuries are denied the full compensation they deserve.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident while on a bicycle, please call 203-878-1254 or contact Penner Law Firm today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Connecticut accident attorneys.
