Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Many bicycle accidents are the result of negligence. When motorists fail to take the necessary precautions to look out for cyclists or disregard the rules of the road, they can cause serious accidents and injuries. The good news is that if you were injured in a bicycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to take legal action.

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Right Hook: This occurs when a motorist makes a right turn without noticing an oncoming cyclist, leading to a collision between the turning vehicle and the cyclist going straight.
  • Left Cross: In a left cross accident, a motorist turns left at an intersection or driveway, crossing the path of an oncoming cyclist, resulting in a collision.
  • Dooring: When a driver or passenger opens a car door without checking for cyclists approaching from behind, causing the cyclist to collide with the door or swerve into traffic to avoid it.
  • Failure to Yield: Motorists failing to yield the right-of-way to cyclists when required, such as at intersections, crosswalks, or when merging, leading to collisions.
  • Unsafe Passing: Drivers passing cyclists too closely or at high speeds without providing enough space, which can lead to sideswiping or forcing the cyclist off the road.
  • Distracted Driving: Motorists being distracted by activities such as texting, using a phone, eating, or adjusting controls, leading to failure to notice cyclists and causing accidents.
  • Speeding: Excessive speed by motorists reduces reaction time and increases the severity of collisions with cyclists.
  • Intoxicated Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs judgment and reaction time, significantly increasing the risk of accidents involving cyclists.
  • Visibility Issues: Low visibility due to factors like darkness, inclement weather, or obstructed views can make cyclists less noticeable to motorists, increasing the risk of collisions.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bicycle accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, many of which are severe and life-altering. These types of injuries can result in significant medical bills, lost wages, and other damages, all of which can be recovered through a personal injury claim.

Some of the most common bicycle accident injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Dislocated joints
  • Severe cuts and lacerations
  • Road rash
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Concussions and other brain injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Permanent disability

These types of injuries often require extensive medical care and can leave victims with permanent impairments. When these injuries are caused by negligence, victims have the right to pursue compensation for their damages.

How Can a Bicycle Accident Lawyer Help?

After a bicycle accident, the insurance company may reach out to you and offer a settlement. It is important to understand that the insurance company is not looking out for your best interests. They are a for-profit company, and their main goal is to protect their bottom line.

When you work with our firm, we can help you by:

  • Investigating the accident to gather the necessary evidence
  • Consulting with experts to determine liability and the value of your claim
  • Handling all communications and negotiations with the insurance company
  • Aggressively advocating for your rights at trial, if necessary
  • Fighting for the full, fair recovery you are owed

Our team understands how insurance companies operate, and we know how to build a strong case on your behalf. Our goal is to help you secure a fair settlement that covers all of your past and future damages. We are not afraid to take your case to trial if the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement.
