Would it surprise you to learn that California had the most fatal bicycle accidents of any state in the U.S. in 2012? Traffic accidents in California killed 147 bicyclists and injured an additional 13,921 that year.
We’re concerned about bicycle accidents and the great harm they can cause. As part of Avrek Law Firm’s efforts to help bicyclists in Orange County and across California, we’ve developed an informational graphic with many facts about bicycle crashes in California and the nation and tips on how to avoid becoming a bicycle accident statistic.
Get our Bicycle Crashes infographic and check out its data on the risks bicyclists face, then share it with family and friends. It can be printed out as a full-color, eye-catching poster or shared digitally via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Feel free to put it on your blog; we want to get the word out any way we can.
The poster includes accident and injury statistics, an explanation of common bicycle injuries, and why it is so important to protect yourself by wearing a bicycle helmet. We also list the Top 8 California cities for bicycle accident injuries and deaths. Do you know your risk?
And if you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident that was someone else’s fault, such as being hit by a car driven by a negligent driver, you need to know that you can seek compensation for your medical expenses and other losses. We would rather you stay safe, but if you are injured, the bicycle accident injury lawyers of the Avrek Law Firm can help you.
