Our state and local laws requires both bicycles and vehicles to share the road.

This basically means Springfield cyclists have the same rights as if they were operating a vehicle. Our Springfield bicycle accident attorneys are experienced in handling bicycle accidents and ensure their rights are understood by jurors who hear these cases.
In our experience, when vehicles hit cyclists, the following types of injuries are most common:
Intolerance or a complete disregard for the statutory rights of Springfield bicyclists often leads to serious accidents. This unwillingness to share the roads can only result in more dangerous riding conditions.
