Superior Court Judge Severely Injured In Bicycle Accident

The South New Jersey news website,, recently reported on Superior Court Judge Lee Solomon’s brush with death following a serious bicycle accident.

The fifty-five year old Solomon was riding his bike one morning when he struck a large pothole and was thrown forward over the handlebars into the street. He was rushed to Cooper University Hospital’s Trauma Intensive Care Unit.

Bicycle Accident Injuries

Thankfully, he was wearing a helmet, but he still sustained severe injuries. Solomon’s skull was fractured in several places and he also fractured his hip and pelvis in the accident. He had been riding frequently in order to train for a future bicycle ride to raise money for awareness for multiple sclerosis.

Solomon, who has been a state judge for over three years, will not be participating in the benefit ride and, while he is fairing remarkably well, will likely require a lengthy recovery before he can return to work. His wife Diane said he is not going to be at the courthouse as soon as he thinks he is going to be at the courthouse.

She went on to joke that her husband always enjoys trying new things, such as visiting new restaurants, and his injuries have allowed him to visit Cooper’s brand new trauma center and make full use of its facilities.

The Importance Of Helmets

Solomon has inadvertently become a poster boy for helmet-wearing. Had he not been wearing one at the time of his accident, the injuries to his head could have been more severe or possibly even cost him his life.

Safety equipment is not just for professional riders or toddlers with training wheels. All riders should wear at least a helmet to reduce chances of injury in case of an accident. Solomon’s case proves that environmental hazards can be just as dangerous as automobiles to a bike rider.

Understanding Car Insurance Costs

Before buying a new car, you may want to consider all costs of owning a vehicle not just your monthly car payment. One of the biggest expenses associated with owning or leasing a car, besides the monthly car payment, is insurance. In some cases, insurance can cost as much or even more than your car payment.
