At its best, rollerblading can be a fun and healthy way to get outdoor exercise. But as many bladers know, careless drivers can prevent you from having a safe rollerblading experience.
When drivers don’t pay attention to the road, everyone is at risk. But rollerbladers are in a particularly large amount of danger. Being hit by a car while wearing limited safety equipment leaves you at risk of serious injury. Rollerbladers who are hit by careless drivers may experience nerve damage, including paralysis, broken bones, or even death.
If you were recently injured in a rollerblading accident, you may be struggling to get back into the sport you love. You may even be struggling to return to work, or coping with large medical bills. Fortunately, an experienced attorney can help.
If your accident was caused by a negligent driver — someone who was distracted, ignored the rules of the road, or perhaps even drove while under the influence — you may be entitled to a financial settlement. Compensation can be an important step in holding careless drivers accountable, and therefore preventing future accidents.
