Wearing a helmet is one of the most important safety and preventive measures to consider with Cherry Hill bicycle accidents. This could prevent a more serious head injury in case of an accident. As far as avoiding or preventing a bicycle accident, a bicyclist could wear reflective clothing, have lights or reflective lighting on the bicycle. An experienced bike accident attorney may suggest potential clients wear anything that would make it easier to be seen.
Bicycle accidents often occur simply because the driver of a car did not see the bicyclist, especially when the sun starts to go down or at night time. The bicyclist needs to be visible. Another way to prevent a bicycle accident is to abide by the same traffic laws as a car. If the bicycle goes with traffic; abides by the traffic signals, and it makes it easier for vehicles to see the bicyclist/bicycle, it will lessen the possibility of an accident. When driving in Cherry Hill, there may be a bicycle lane with bicyclists cycling to work. Just being aware of your surroundings and watchful for bicyclists and pedestrians could save lives.
In Cherry Hill, anyone under the age of 17 that rides the bicycle or is a passenger on a bicycle must wear a helmet. No helmet is required over the age of 17, although it is recommended. The fact that the bicyclist was wearing a helmet or not does not have an impact on the case, i.e., the person being barred from making a recovery or somehow penalized from making a recovery because of the helmet. Where it can make an impact is with the nature of the injuries sustained. Someone who is wearing the helmet should not sustain a serious head injury compared to someone who is not. Those things can impact the case, but as far as being able to use it against them, is not permitted.
An injured bicyclist should seek medical attention as soon as possible, whether it is a hospital, an urgent care, or a physician. Injuries from accidents sometimes take a few hours to manifest; that person may start to experience headaches or blurry vision. It is a wise choice to seek medical attention and getting into the habit of implementing safety and preventive measures in Cherry Hill bicycle accidents.
It is a good idea to carry emergency contact information, health insurance card, and driver’s license (or a photo ID), in the event the bicyclist is unconscious after being involved in a serious accident and unable to communicate. The first responders will have all the necessary information they need for treatment and to contact that person’s emergency contacts.

The first responders will have all the necessary information they need for treatment and to contact that person’s emergency contacts. If there is an accident and someone has a camera attached to their bike, law enforcement would be able to determine how it occurred and who is responsible.
The most common misconception regarding safety and preventive measures in Cherry Hill bicycle accidents is that a collision occurs because the bicyclist was in an area they were not supposed to be in. In certain areas in Cherry Hill, a person is not allowed to drive a bicycle on the sidewalk. It is important that people understand that bicyclists are going to be on the roadway with them.
If a bicyclist knew they were supposed to follow the same traffic laws as a motor vehicle, then certain accidents could be prevented. An example would be if a person comes up to a traffic signal and there is a green arrow allowing people to make a left-hand turn. That bicyclist is going to be in that left-turn lane with the left-turn vehicles. If the driver of a car is not aware that the bicyclist is going to follow the same traffic laws as they are, that could result in an accident.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10
First and foremost I would like to thank the whole team at Grungo Colarulo!! In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

Those ladies were there every step, every inch, every mile & beyond with helping me when I had no idea how to navigate. I will forever be thankful for them and for the outcome of my case! If you ever need assistance I highly recommend this practice!!! Beyond professional, helpful, precise, caring, knowledgeable & humble!!!
From my first phone call to the end of my case this firm was on the ball!! Always responsive and professional and kept me up to date and informed. This is my firm for any future needs!
This was my first time ever having to have a lawyer for an automobile accident. From the beginning they took care of everything. They put me at ease so I could concentrate on my medical needs. Everyone I spoke to during the process were always extremely pleasant and knowledgeable.
Thank you to Grungo Colarulo for representing me and getting the settlement you did to help me move forward. I would highly recommend Grungo Colarulo to anyone who wants outstanding legal representation.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
