John Henderson, Your Bike Injury Attorney in Charleston SC
In 2016, I was riding my bicycle in a bike lane when a car ran into me. I suffered a concussion, broken right arm, and countless lacerations and contusions. As EMS was loading me on a stretcher, my wife showed up on the scene with our 18 month old – she was terrified to say the least. The injuries were mostly cosmetic and not life threatening, but the situation easily could have been much worse. The at fault driver tried desperately to avoid taking responsibility, claiming I was not in the bike lane. Two witnesses, fortunately, told officers I was in the bike lane. The automobile driver was eventually found at fault by law enforcement and a judge. Since that accident, I have had ongoing neck and back issues, and my broken arm still shakes when I try writing. I know too well how accidents have a way of staying with people long after the incident. I’m also reminded daily of how quickly life can change and how that situation could have been much worse. What if I had fallen into the lane of traffic? What if I wasn’t a lawyer trained to identify evidence and witnesses? What if the at fault driver had not hit her brakes just before impact? Because of that event, I am not only more thankful than I was before, but I’m also a much more compassionate lawyer.
