Motorists have responsibilities. We hold them accountable.
While drivers and passengers in car accidents can suffer serious and even fatal injuries, they at least have the metal body of a vehicle providing them with some protection. The same can’t be said for pedestrians, joggers, skaters and bicyclists, who are some of the most vulnerable people on the road. Even at low speeds, contact between a vehicle and a person’s unprotected body can cause massive injuries.
If you were hurt in a share-the-road accident, you shouldn’t have to deal with the pain and expense alone. You need to hold the negligent motorist accountable, and you need our help to do it.

Pennsylvania and New Jersey law considers a bicycle a vehicle. Bicycles are governed by a general set of rules common to all vehicles, as well as rules specifically for bicycles. However, even the most law-abiding cyclist still remains vulnerable to injuries on the roadways. As cycling continues to grow in popularity, motorists and bicyclists alike need to be mindful of each other when sharing the road.
Some motorists may resent bicyclists who share the roadway. They may believe cyclists don’t deserve to ride on the same roads. A driver’s “road rage” could lead to a collision with the cyclist, which could prove to be a factor in determining negligence. Because bicycles are small and make very little noise, they’re commonly hit by drunk or distracted drivers. In other cases, a cyclist may slam into a car door if a driver is not looking while trying to exit a vehicle.
People hurt in bicycle accidents may sustain a variety of severe injuries, including broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Helmets may minimize or reduce the risk of head injury in a bicycle accident, but the rider can still sustain severe injuries. A cyclist’s injury may even result in death.
