Fighting for the Rights of Bike Accident Victims and Their Families in Arizona & New Mexico

There are several benefits to bicycling. First, with fuel costs on the rise, it’s a great way to save money. Second, it is an environmentally friendly form of transportation. Finally, it is a wonderful way to get exercise and stay healthy.

However, as beneficial as cycling can be, bicycles are some of the most vulnerable vehicles on the road, and far too many motorists don’t prioritize sharing the roadways safely with cyclists. More and more, these factors are resulting in devastating bicycle accidents happening in our city and throughout our state.

Tragically, many of these crashes lead to cyclists suffering catastrophic injuries or losing their lives. To make matters worse, in many instances, the cyclists aren’t at fault for the bike accident. Instead, negligent drivers, who usually walk away from these types of collisions unscathed, are generally to blame.

At IBF Law Group, our legal team has a history of helping injury victims and their families bring those responsible for their pain and suffering to justice. Our experienced bicycle accident attorneys work closely with our clients throughout the legal process and make sure our clients understand the laws that are impacting their case so that they can make informed decisions regarding how to proceed with their lawsuit.
