Phoenix Bicycle Accidents Attorney
According to newly released data compiled and released by the Arizona Dept. of Transportation, there were more bicycle crashes in 2012 – the year of the newest data that was compiled – than in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. While the actual number of deaths were somewhat within the same range as those of prior years, unfortunately, pedalcyclist’s injuries reflected the greatest percent of all injuries in 2012. If you sustained injuries while riding a bicycle, or if a loved one lost their life, you may be able to seek compensation with the help of a Phoenix bicycle accident lawyer in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. The Phoenix Law Firm of Curiel and Runion offers a free case review to discuss the matters involved in your case.
The Recently Revealed 2012 AZDOT Bicycle Accident Data
After every calendar year, after extensive research, data is compiled to paint the picture of injuries and deaths in all areas of motor vehicle transportation. It just so happens at the time of this writing that the absolutely newest data was released only two days ago by the Arizona Dept. of Transportation. Some of the information reveals the following:
- Pedalcyclists (bicyclists) Killed and Injured by Age and Gender:
- Age: 0-4; killed: 0, injured 8
- Age: 5-9; killed: 0, injured 44
- Age: 10-14: killed 4, injured 167
- Age: 15-19: killed 2, injured 255
- Age: 20-24: killed 2, injured 250
- Age: 25-34: killed 4, injured 317
- Age: 35-44: killed 4, injured 205
- Age: 45-54: killed 8, injured 251
- Age: 55-65: killed 6, injured 138
- Age: 65-74: killed 6, injured 61
- Age: 75 and older: killed 0, injured 19
From just reviewing the number and age of bicyclists, it can be seen that there is a high probability that a minor or serious accident can happen to virtually anyone, resulting in death or severe injury. If a driver negligently struck you or forced you off the road or created an accident in which you were injured, you may seek compensation in a personal injury suit, including damages such as medical treatment, pharmacy bills, rehabilitation, lost income past and future, loss of consortium, property loss and more. Speak to your Phoenix bicycle accident attorney about this.
