Salt Lake Bicycle Accident Attorney
Bicycles offer individuals exercise, enjoyment, and transportation. However, riding a bicycle is risky given the number of cars on the road, tired drivers, speed and distracted drivers. This can lead to serious and often fatal outcomes for Utah cyclists.
Through the first seven months of calendar year 2022 there have been thirty-eight serious injury bicycle accidents and eleven deaths in Utah involving cyclist. This is the highest number of deaths in the past decade according to the Utah Department of Transportation.
When a cyclist is hurt or dies, they are not statistics – it’s an individual and a family.
