Bicycle Accident Injuries

Have you been injured in a bicycle accident? Between 25 and 30% of all Washingtonians do not drive; so, naturally many rely primarily on bicycles to get from place to place. As more and more people use bicycles for transportation, it’s important to ensure that you stay safe as you navigate the road with larger vehicles.

Between 2013 and 2017, bicycle and pedestrian fatalities combined accounted for 18.6% of all traffic fatalities, and 22.5% of all serious injuries. In 2015, 818 people died in bicycle accidents - 89 more than the number of people who died in 2014.

Puyallup in general have long prided themselves on working towards the city and communities that promote bicycle riding for a healthy and environmentally sustainable living.

Plenty of citizens in Puyallup choose to bike as a way to stay healthy and decrease their environmental impact. A study even ranked Washington as the most bike-friendly state in the nation. Between 25 and 30% of all Washingtonians do not even drive cars at all.

Legally, Washington requires that bike riders are treated as road vehicles, just like cars and trucks. This is great news for that percentage of our population who do not drive.

However, although biking is an excellent form of exercise and eco-friendly living, cyclists are at risk for injury when they are sharing the road with vehicles. Between 2013 and 2017, bicycle and pedestrian fatalities combined accounted for 18.6% of all traffic fatalities, and 22.5% of all serious injuries. In 2015, 818 people died in bicycle accidents - 89 more than the number of people who died in 2014.

Overall, between 2013 and 2017, bicycle fatalities doubled in the state of Washington.
