(PRWEB) July 26, 2013
Adnan Munawar, a New York City based bicycle accident lawyer, today released a statement commenting on a high profile bicycle accident involving the CEO of San Diego based company Connect.
According to the San Diego Source Daily Transcript (Connect CEO Roth Injured in Bicycle Accident, 7/22/2013), Connect CEO Duane Roth was riding his bicycle with a group of friends near Lake Cuyamaca in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park when he suddenly went off-road and suffered a serious head injury. The cause of the accident is unclear.
In light of this news, and the recent introduction of the Citi Bike, the new bike-sharing program available in New York City, Adnan Munawar of Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, LLP has released a reminder to cyclists to always wear a helmet and take necessary safety precautions while riding.
“What happened to Mr. Roth is truly awful, and our hearts go out to him and his family,” said Munawar. “It is important that no matter what capacity you are riding your bicycle in, whether it is as a commuter, for fitness or for recreation with friends, you must remain vigilant and aware of your surroundings, and also be equally aware of your rights as an accident victim.”
Munawar went on to describe the options available to victims of bicycle accidents.
“In some cases, bicycle accident victims may be entitled to some form of compensation to cover their medical bills, lost wages due to missed work, as well as pain and suffering,” said Munawar. “If you are a victim of an accident, it is always prudent to consult with an attorney to know your rights and available options.”
