Defective Bike Causes Injury
Many individuals choose bicycling as their mode of transportation, or they may bicycle as part of their active lifestyle. For those who spend a lot of time on their bike, traveling on either roadways or trails, a defective component of a bicycle could cause serious injury.

If you or your loved one is involved in a bicycle defect accident and suffers injury as a result, it is important to contact a bicycle accident attorney after receiving medical attention. Documenting the injuries sustained from the bicycle defect is important to the outcome of your personal injury claim.
