Making Roads And Sidewalks Safer For Bicyclists And Pedestrians
Atlanta commuters have one of the most expensive and timely commutes on average in the country. It is not a surprise that so many Georgians are turning to alternative transportation when possible; as a result, the number of bicyclists and pedestrians is on the rise. Unfortunately, over 65% of bicyclists feel unsafe on the roads, and their fears are well-reasoned.
If you are injured while on a bike or when walking, Cheeley Law Group is ready to stand by your side. Cyclists and pedestrians suffer significantly when injured on the road; we take your case as seriously as you do. Schedule a consultation today.
Long-Lasting Injuries Are The Direct Result Of Bicyclist And Pedestrian Wrecks
Your body stands little chance against a moving vehicle. A car or truck simply has more force and mass. When a biker or pedestrian is caught in the midst of a crash, their injuries are very likely to be severe and may take weeks or months to fully manifest. Common examples of injuries are:
- Compound fractures and other bone injuries requiring surgical intervention
- Muscle and tendon damage, including internal bleeding and open wounds
- Head injuries leading to substantial cognitive damage or loss of motor control
- Severe spinal damage leading to paralysis
After these wrecks, you may require substantial medical attention or even lifelong care. These medical expenses are just that — expensive. Our firm helps hold inattentive or reckless drivers accountable for the injuries they cause.
