Fortunately, there are companies like Glofin that understand the personal injury legal process and can advance funds against a potential future settlement to help these injured victims in need. Many of these injured bicycle riders have valid Personal Injury claims against the car or truck that caused the accident. Glofin can provide cash advances to the injured while they try to recover from their injuries and await their Personal Injury Lawsuit settlement.
Many bicycle accidents happen at intersections when a car or truck is not paying attention or the bicyclist believes he/she can ignore a red light or stop sign. Although the speed of the vehicles when the accidents occur at an intersection is usually lower, the injuries sustained are often just as severe. Bicycle injuries can be as severe as death which may result in a Wrongful Death claim or even paralysis that would result in a Personal Injury claim.
It is a common perception among motorists that bicycle riders are taking their lives into their hands when riding on public roads and this ignorance itself can cause accidents. It has actually been proven that bicycle riders are consistently using more caution than their pedestrian counterparts or truck and car drivers. There is a perception that roads were built for cars and not bicycles, but the majority of states and cities in the country permit bicyclists on their streets at all times of the day. Recent statistics support our ideas. In the year 2003 there were 192,532 pedestrian accidents in New York City and only 18,540 bicycle accidents. New York City is obviously one of the most dangerous places to ride a bicycle and still the injuries were at a minimal compared to pedestrians who have much better control over where they are going.
Bicycle accidents are dangerous because the person is not protected by anything and they are colliding with a heavy car or truck that may be traveling at great speed. Injuries can be extensive when a 200 lb biker is hit by a 2,000 lb car. The most common injuries sustained by bicyclist that are in accidents are: whiplash, concussion, closed head injury, broken arms, broken legs and shoulder injuries. Many of these injuries take a long time to heal and many of the victims cannot work during the healing process. The bills continue to pile up even when an injured person has no income.
