Rochester New York Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Cellino & Barnes represents clients in the Rochester area who have been injured in bicycle accidents.
In New York State, the law requires children under 14 years of age to wear a helmet. Many of the serious and catastrophic bike accident injuries occur when children and adults do not wear helmets. Should the helmet law be changed to require helmets when riding a bike, regardless of age?
Types of Bicycle Accident Injuries
The most common bike accident injuries are cuts and scrapes from falling off a bicycle. Many of these cuts and scrapes are minor and heal without the need for any medical attention.
Serious injuries, however, usually occur when a motor vehicle is involved. It doesn’t take much of an impact from a moving vehicle to cause serious and even life-threatening injuries to a bicyclist. Most life-threatening injuries happen when a person’s head makes contact with the pavement. Time is critical when the brain has been injured. The best way for a bicyclist to protect themselves is to wear a helmet, regardless of your age.
