The Goings Law Firm Proudly Represents Injured Cyclists

                                                                                    Paralegal Catherine Ashbridge

Our amazing workers’ compensation paralegal, Catherine Ashbridge, is a competitive cyclist.  After working hard throughout the day protecting the rights of injured workers, she typically spends her evenings and weekends with friends cycling. In fact each month, she logs hundreds of miles on the roads or trails of South Carolina. Many people just like Catherine enjoy biking for pleasure but also a growing number of people commute to work or school on their bikes.  More people own bicycles now than ever before, and during the current pandemic, bicycle shops even have a hard time keeping them in stock.

We want to bring greater awareness to bicycle safety. As motorists, we all should do a better job sharing the roadway with cyclists.  The safety and well-being of cyclists require motorists to drive with greater care and to keep a proper outlook.  Some of the leading causes of fatalities towards cyclists are involved driving distracted, looking at your phone while driving, or driving too fast in residential neighborhoods.  In the last 8 years, crashes on South Carolina’s roads and highways have claimed the lives of more than 1100 pedestrians and bicyclists, making our state’s roads among the nation’s deadliest.  South Carolina significantly out paces other states for bicycle related deaths per capita.

Our firm has handled many unfortunate cases involving severe and catastrophic injuries, and many times death, as a result of being struck while on a bicycle by a motorist on the roadway.  We are proud to advocate for bicycle safety and protect the rights of cyclists in South Carolina.  Call us today at 803-350-9230 if we can help you. 🚴🏼‍♀️🚵🏻‍♂️🥇🚨🚲🛴🚓🚧⚠️🚦🚐
