Bicycle riders suffer a staggering number of serious injuries and fatalities in accidents involving motor vehicles. Many of these accidents are caused by car and truck drivers who do not pay attention to their surroundings and do not look for cyclists before making moves that could endanger their lives.
Pursuing Full And Fair Compensation
Serious bike accidents often result from:
- Distracted driving caused by cellphone use
- Dangerous road conditions (potholes, sand and gravel, construction)
- Drunk driving
- Failure to look for oncoming riders when opening doors or pulling into traffic
- Failure to check the blind spot before changing lanes
- Taking a right turn directly in front of oncoming bicyclists
- Sideswiping a bicyclist who is traveling on the shoulder
- Failure to obey stop signs or traffic signals
