Bicycle Accidents on Populated Streets

When a bicycle is on a populated street, it is important that everyone look out for each other. Accidents can occur in multiple ways when a bicycle and a vehicle are involved, and so it's important to not only watch for each other's moves, but also give each other space to perform the actions needed as each "vehicle" is driven. Unfortunately, not all accidents can be avoided, and so it is important that, following an accident in which you are injured and not at fault, you talk to a lawyer who can help you.
