Bicyclists, while typically wearing helmets, lack any sort of protection against broken bones, severe lacerations, neck injuries or other catastrophic injuries. It is important to contact a skilled personal injury attorney to learn more about your options for monetary recovery.

At Scura, Wigfield, Heyer & Stevens, LLP, our New Jersey bike accident attorneys will fight for your full and fair compensation. Bicyclists may be engaged in recreational bicycling or biking as a means of commuting to work or school. These riders have a right to certain areas of the road and drivers must remain attentive at all times.
