Windsor, ON (PRWEB) April 30, 2015
The professional personal injury law firm Law Offices of Paciocco and Mellow based in Windsor, Ontario is launching a public safety announcement regarding bicyclist safety. The law firm wishes to remind bicyclists to exercise the proper safety measures and precautions when bicycling on city roads.
“Spring marks the beginning of bicycle season and there will be many cyclists getting back onto the road this month.” said a Paciocco and Mellow representative. “Last April, we noticed a large influx in bicycle accidents with vehicles and pedestrians. We want to remind the community to be mindful of cyclists and we also want to ensure everyone knows the necessary safety procedures.”
According to the United States Federal Highway Administration, in 2013 over 1083 people lost their lives in bicycle/motor vehicle accidents within Canada and the United States alone. With an average of about three people everyday, it should be a known fact that bicycle accidents can lead to traumatic or catastrophic injuries. Cyclists should wear durable clothing, helmets, and limb pads when out riding. However, this still leaves them susceptible to more serious injuries such as broken bones, head injuries, and road rash. Both minor and major bicycle accidents can result in long-term health implications such as trauma to the back or head.
“In case of a bicycle accident, it is essential to get into contact with a local personal injury law firm to receive quality legal assistance with accident claims and wrongful death claims.” said a Paciocco and Mellow representative. “It is important for cyclists to know their rights and how to take the proper precautions if they find themselves in an accident. The Law Offices of Paciocco and Mellow can help an injured cyclist factor in the long-term costs of their minor injuries to ensure they are covered for all future medical expenses.”
