Yet bicycle accidents still happen in Stamford, Bridgeport and throughout Connecticut. Bicycle accidents often result in very serious injuries - from broken backs to traumatic brain injuries.

That's where Attorney Jeremy Vishno and his experienced legal staff can help. We work hard on behalf of bicycle accident victims throughout the state.
Common causes of bicycle accidents in Fairfield County
How do bicycle accidents happen in Fairfield County? Accidents can happen in a variety of ways. Drivers and bicyclists are equally responsible for sharing the road with one another. The following are some of the ways a driver can cause a bicycle accident in Fairfield County:
- Running stop signs or red lights
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Turning in front of a bicyclist
