Placentia Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Bicycle accident victims are getting older, according to statistics published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  In 1998, the average age of a bicycle fatality victim was 32; in 2008, it had risen to 41.  In 1998, the average age of a victim injured in a bicycle accident was 24; in 2008, this number had risen to 31.

Why is the average age of bicycle accident victims increasing?  There could be several good reasons to explain this phenomenon.  Placentia bicycle accident lawyers study these types of statistics so that they can refine their strategies for recovering the largest sums for their clients.

One reason for the aging of bicycle accident victims could be the increase in attention to health concerns.  According to the NHTSA, at least half of all bicycle riders claim to be riding for leisure or exercise rather than as a mode of transportation.  The increased focus on health issues has led many people in the 30-50 age range to become very conscious of exercise habits, and biking is one way to have fun and get exercise at the same time.  Many people who cannot jog or walk due to knee or leg issues enjoy biking as a healthy alternative.

Another reason for the increase in age in bicycle accident victims may be the movement toward environmental consciousness.  About five percent of bicycle riders claim that they ride to work every day in order to lessen their impact on the environment and to save on fuel costs.  The people who are concerned about this issue are often people in the 25-45 age range.

Finally, older bicyclists may be out more often because they have the money and leisure to pursue this activity as a hobby.  Younger people are often too busy working to spend time on hobbies or leisure activities, and older people may not have the energy or stamina to engage in long bike rides.  However, many people in early middle age have established themselves in their jobs and are happy to spend time on the weekends participating in bike rides with their friends.
