Bicycle Accidents

Do you need a bicycle accident attorney?

Even with the right safety equipment, bicyclists are extremely vulnerable on the road. Bicycle crashes can badly injure, and even kill, those involved. If you or a loved one has been involved in a bicycle accident, an attorney can collect evidence, deal with insurance companies and paperwork, and fight to get the compensation you deserve.

What are the common causes of bike accidents?

Legally, motorists and bicyclists share the road, but oftentimes motorists don’t know or follow the appropriate rules to keep bicyclists safe.

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • A driver of a parked car opening their door into the path of a bicyclist
  • A motor driver running a red light
  • A motor driver making a turn that cuts off a bicyclist
  • A vehicle side-swiping a bicyclist
  • Distracted, careless, or drunk driving

Other causes, which don’t involve motor drivers, can include poor or dangerous road conditions, an improperly designed or repaired bike, a dog attack, or a collision with a pedestrian or another cyclist.

Who pays the medical bills after a bicycle crash?

Following an accident, an experienced bicycle accident lawyer needs to evaluate the nature of the crash and the insurance coverages to determine who is financially responsible.
