If you or a loved one has been injured while bicycling, Don Strickland is here to advocate for you. He applies his extensive experience in personal injury law to help you recover compensation for medical treatment, missed wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and any other damages related to your accident.

Call Don Strickland at (919) 701-8132. You pay nothing unless you receive compensation.

Bicycle Laws in North Carolina

North Carolina law sets out rights and rules for bicyclists, including:

  • Legal roads — A bicycle may ride on all roads except interstate highways
  • Center lane travel — Bicyclists may ride in the center lane of traffic so long as they maintain a safe speed
  • Flow of traffic — A bicyclist cannot ride against moving traffic
  • Signs and signals — A bicyclist must obey all traffic signals and signs

If you followed all traffic laws but were struck by a motor vehicle, chances are you were not at fault. Don Strickland has represented injured persons for over 34 years. He is dedicated to making the world safer, one case at a time.

Common Injuries Caused by Bicycle Accidents

When a motor vehicle collides with a bicycle, the cyclist gets the worst of it. A bicycle rider can suffer major injuries to the brain, head, back, and limbs.

Helmets reduce the risk of a fatal head injury by 60%, but injuries can still occur, including:

  • Head and brain injuriesConcussions, contusions, and severe brain injuries can occur during a collision. Skull fractures can cause permanent disability or death.
  • Broken bones — Car-bike collisions often mean simple or compound fractures for the cyclist.
  • Spinal cord injuries If a crash injures your spinal cord, you can be permanently paralyzed and require long-term care.
