Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Matt Arnold answers the question: “Can I wait a few months to pursue a personal injury claim?”
Bicycling seems to be more popular than ever. Whether you use a bike to get to and from work or for fun or exercise on the weekends, bicycles are a great option. Using a bike allows you to get to and from a nearby location without using any expensive gasoline, so it reduces your carbon footprint. Electric-assisted bicycles are becoming more common and less expensive, making it easier than ever to utilize a bike for quick trips around town. Unfortunately, bicycle safety is a concern. According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) each year, on average, about 1,000 bicycles are involved in reported accidents, about 60 people suffer serious injuries, and about 20 bicyclists are killed.
