  • Death
  • Severe Injury                     

Both of the above have been attributed to bicycles. 

We have bicycle lawyers standing by ready to speak with you.  

You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, and we take all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay for our services unless you receive an award/compensation.  

Do not Delay!  

Your rights and compensation may be lost forever if you wait.  


The bicycle – which may also be referred to as a bike or as a cycle - is a pedal-driven, human-powered vehicle that usually possesses two wheels that are affixed to a frame. 

The bicycle was first introduced on a large scale in the 1800s; and, today, there are an estimated one-billion bicycles in use, worldwide.

Bicycles have also proven to be a very popular form of recreation, and have also been adapted for such uses as adult fitness, military and police applications, courier-services, and competitive sports. 



Statistics for accidents, injuries and deaths in the United States involving bicycles make for grim reading. 

In 2007, no less than 700 people were killed in bicycle accidents; and in 2006, the figure was even higher: 770. 

More than 90 per cent of all yearly bicycle accidents involve collisions with other motor vehicles, such as cars, motorcycles, SUVs, other bicycles, and trucks.  

Around 540,000 bicycle injuries that result in emergency-room treatment occur every single year, of which nearly 70,000 – on average - involve injuries to the head.

This amounts to a countrywide statistic of one emergency-room treatment for a bicycle rider every 3 minutes of every day of every week. 

Approximately 1 in every 8 people who are involved in a bicycle-related accident suffers from some form of brain injury; and there is, on average, one head injury-related death in the U.S. every 15 hours. 

Bicycle-related deaths climb quickly at the age of 5; and reach their peak in children aged 12.  

Almost 25 per cent of all bicyclists killed in traffic accidents in the United States in 2002 were between the ages of 5 and 15. 

Three-quarters of all bicycle-related deaths in 2002 involved riders who were 16 and older.

This compares with a figure of just 32% in 1975. 

Nearly seventy per cent of all fatal accidents involving bicyclists in 2002 occurred in urban areas; as compared to only 32% in rural areas. 

Almost ninety per cent of all bicyclists who were killed in 2002 failed to wear helmets. 

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC HEALTH RELATED RISKS? The most serious risks include:
