Accidents involving cyclists occur far too often in Pennsylvania and often result in serious and sometimes even fatal injuries. Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that in 2011 alone, 677 cyclists died in traffic crashes, and 48,000 others were injured.
What’s even more unfortunate is that many times, bike crashes are passed off as minor incidents. In some instances, especially in a multiple-vehicle accident, police officers discount the cyclist’s side of the story. Cyclists themselves might even decide to ignore their own injuries, thinking they are only simple bruises when they could in fact develop into more serious issues.
