Safety considerations are critical. However, even with the best riding and equipment, we can’t control others.
Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) September 06, 2012

Both the RTC and Benson Bertoldo Baker and Carter promote motorized and pedal-power vehicular safety on our roadways. As a top personal injury law firm in the Las Vegas area, Benson, Bertoldo, Baker & Carter represents individuals that are injured in vehicular collisions, or family members in the case of unfortunate fatalities.
“Cycling is a fun, exciting and environmentally friendly pastime. Whether it’s a means of travel to and from work, a jaunt around the neighborhood by oneself or with the family, or a speed interval in the peloton, bicyclists and motor vehicles do not always pair well,” says attorney Brett A. Carter. “Safety considerations are critical. However, even with the best riding and equipment, we can’t control others.”
According to Carter, cyclists can be injured even if they do everything they can to protect themselves. For example, drivers of vehicles might swerve into the bicycle lane and hit a bike rider if they aren’t paying attention to the road. Cyclists can also be injured by defective bike parts such as a broken wheel, a stuck gear or ineffective brakes.
As Las Vegas bicycle accident lawyers, Benson, Bertoldo, Baker & Carter advocates for bike riders that are injured by another’s negligence.
“It’s important to know your rights as a cyclist,” says Mr. Carter. “Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned athlete, you are entitled to hold someone accountable for their negligence. We all well know what can happen when the rules of the road aren’t followed.”
