CHILDREN HURT IN BICYCLE ACCIDENTS DUE TO NEGLIGENT MOTORISTS
Motorist are most often to blame for bicycle accidents that involve children. When children are hurt or killed in a bicycle accident, cell phone use while driving is among the leading cause of the accident. Motorists that are distracted by cell phone use behind the wheel will most likely be liable for compensation to the accident victim. Bicycle accidents involving children can occur when kids pull out from in between parked cars or at street corners that have no traffic light. Accidents can occur when cars or trucks back-out of driveways or pull-out of parking lots. Since small children are more difficult to spot from behind the wheel of a car or truck, the consequences can be devastating and end in severe injury or wrongful death. Perazzo Law fights to guarantee their clients receive just compensation for injuries or losses following a bicycle accident that involves children.
CHILDREN HURT IN BICYCLE ACCIDENTS DUE TO DEFECTS OR LACK OF MAINTENANCE
Defective bikes and bike parts can lead to accidents that result in children suffering personal injury. Bicycle handles or pedals that lack proper installation or maintenance can lead to a child falling while riding. Proper maintenance of a child's bicycle is fundamental to preventing accidents when children ride down streets or through parks. Making sure a child's bicycle brakes function properly is a determining factor to avoid accidents when children ride their bikes at faster speeds. Parents and legal guardians should make sure that the bike chain is oiled regularly and properly tightened. When a child falls while riding a bicycle, the accident can lead to bruises, sprains, head injury, and even broken bones.
CHILDREN HURT IN BICYCLE ACCIDENTS DUE TO LACK OF SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Where and when children ride their bicycles is key to lowering the chances of a child being hurt in a bicycle accident. Perazzo Law recommends that children refrain from riding bicycles at night and amid traffic-congested streets and avenues. Furthermore, children should wear proper safety gear such as helmets, elbow and knee pads. Bumps on the head can lead to head injuries which can spread into adulthood and cause headaches, memory loss, and other brain trauma. The footwear children use while riding their bikes is fundamental to prevent foot injuries and loss of traction. Children should never ride their bikes while barefoot and they should always wear sneakers when they ride. Perazzo Law also recommends reflective stickers or tape to enhance their presence under poorly lit areas during nighttime riding.
