St Charles, MO – Zachary Pudivitr Hurt in Bicycle Wreck on I-70 near Zumbehl RdPeople often utilize bicycles as a method of transportation. Not only is this method of traveling much healthier for people, but it is also cost-efficient. People find that traveling on bicycles allows them to make it to their destination without significant costs. Although this method of transportation is generally safe and reliable, we continue to see innocent people harmed while sharing roads with negligent and reckless drivers.

Bicyclists are likely to suffer from significant injuries due to the fact that they have only helmets to protect them in most cases. We see many bicyclists hospitalized with traumatic brain injuries, severe compound fractures, and other life-threatening injuries that demand emergency treatment.
