Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles have become a very popular form of transportation – especially in larger cities – across the United States. Not only are bicycles beneficial for the environment and also for one’s wallet with the increasing price of gas, but they are also a great form of exercise. Despite these benefits, bicyclists must be aware that they are in grave danger in the event of an accident involving a motor vehicle.

If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a bicycle accident caused by a negligent or reckless motorist, you may be eligible to pursue financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Most Common Causes of Bike Accidents

According to recent statistics, a fatal bicycle accident occurs every six hours in the United States. Most of these accidents are caused by negligent motorists. Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents with other vehicles include the following:

  • Motorists operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Turning in front of a bicyclists without checking blind spots
  • Cars running red lights, stop signs, or failing to yield
  • Motorists not looking both ways before pulling out of a driveway or onto a street
