What are the Causes of Bicycle Accidents?

While a nearly infinite number of factors can play a role in causing a bicycle accident, most collisions are the direct result of driver error. Careless drivers can cause cyclists to suffer devastating injuries in the event of a collision, such as broken bones, road rash, spinal cord damage, brain injuries, and sometimes death. Cyclists will almost always get the worst of a crash due to the vast difference in weight between a motor vehicle and a bicycle.

The following forms of driver negligence can all lead to a bicycle accident:

  • Driving at inappropriate speeds
  • Driving without headlights at night
  • Failing to check blind spots before turning or changing lanes
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driving in bike lanes
  • Running stop signs and red lights

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to recover monetary compensation for your suffering by filing a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. If successful, you may be able to recover compensation for losses related to medical expenses, lost wages, damaged property, pain and suffering, and lost earning potential. Our firm can examine the circumstances of your accident and help you determine your legal options.
