Bicycle Accident Attorney in Northern Virginia
Compensation for Injured Riders
Bicycles are popular in Northern Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Maryland. Although cycling can be a fun and rewarding form of recreation, exercise, and commuting, it also poses risks to riders. Because bicyclists have very little protection against motor vehicles and other surrounding objects, they often suffer injuries during traffic accidents. Many of these injuries are serious, and a great deal are fatal.
