Tucson Bicycle Accident Lawyer
It is no secret that Tucson, Arizona is a bicycle-friendly city, with more riders taking to the streets each day. Some ride for sport, others for recreation. Still more ride bicycles to avoid high gasoline prices for their commute to work or school. But with so many bicyclists sharing the road with automobile and truck drivers, the risk of bicycle accident injury is a very real danger. Our bicycle accident lawyers have helped numerous victims recover for their injuries since 1975.
Heightened risk of danger for bicyclists in Tucson
Although bicycling popularity in southern Arizona has grown steadily in recent years, Tucson infrastructure has not kept pace. Riders are forced to share the road with motorists rather than use dedicated bike trails throughout the city. As a result, they are put dangerously close to motor vehicles and made vulnerable to traffic accident injury. Bicycle lanes that travel on the far right of the road are particularly dangerous for bicyclists—it puts them in the blind spot of motorists making right hand turns. Bicyclists are also in danger of being hurt in a collision with a drunk driver.
