Just Like Riding a Bike: Remember to Ride Safely This Summer

Summertime means biking for many people. That means keep alert while you’re out having fun. Obey traffic laws. Always wear a helmet, and keep alert for the unexpected, which could mean
obstacles in the road, inattentive motorists or even overly aggressive dogs.

Our client, Robert Forney, was riding his bike on CR195 in Sandusky County. A dog ran into the street, causing him to fly over his handlebars, injuring himself and damaging his bike. He was taken to Mercy Hospital in Tiffin, where he was treated for multiple fractured ribs, right lung and liver contusions and multiple abrasions.

Our firm helped Mr. Forney recover damages following the accident. If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of others, or their pets, contact our office.
