Bicycle Accidents in New Jersey 

East Brunswick, NJ - Cyclist Fatally Struck by Driver on Old Bridge Tpk

Bicycle accidents are not as common as accidents that happen between motor vehicles on our roads in New Jersey. In fact, in 2021 alone, only about 25 lives were lost as a result of these accidents. However, it is important to note that fatal accidents involving bicyclists have been at their highest since the 80s.

More bicyclists have been hitting the roads since the COVID pandemic became prevalent in everyday life. Though it is great to see many people making their health a high priority, these accidents are on the rise and lives are being taken every year. If you have lost a loved one in a bicycle accident, it is important that you speak with an attorney immediately.
