Bicyclists across the country have made the choice to ride to protect the environment and for their health. Yet when bicycle crashes happen, those same cyclists are often chastised for not choosing a safer method of transportation. At the Law Firm of Kass & Moses, we recognize that cycling is a tremendous form of transportation that should be embraced throughout the state, the country, and even the world. Louisiana has made efforts to improve infrastructure for cyclists, and this is an important step. But still, cyclists are injured each day in crashes. When these crashes occur, cyclists are harmed, both physically and financially.
It is not difficult to see how injuries can occur when cyclists are struck by motor vehicles. They are the obvious underdogs on the road. It is for this reason that we believe cyclists rights should be protected. Cyclists suffer from more than their fair share of injuries, with some resulting in long-term disabilities. In addition, the costs of medical treatment are tremendous. Mounting medical bills and the pain associated with injuries can make the weeks and months following a bike crash a difficult time.
