Bike Messenger Accidents
At Martin Law, our attorneys are familiar with the injuries commonly suffered by bike messengers. These accidents are all too common in urban areas where thousands of deliveries happen every single day. We know that as a bike messenger, you are expected to avoid obstacles like pedestrians and cars and to make deliveries in a timely fashion, no matter what the weather conditions may be. This is a lot of pressure.
Most often, bike messengers are injured in accidents like:
- Collisions with pedestrians or cars
- Being hit by a car door opening
- Poor road or sidewalk conditions
Some of the types of injuries bike messengers can suffer from are:
- Broken bones
- Lacerations, scrapes and bruises
- Pulled groins
- Face and head injuries
