Compassionate & Comprehensive Legal Care
More and more people across the nation are turning to bicycles are their primary form of transportation, whether it be for improving their health, contributing to an eco-friendly environment, or personal reasons pertaining to enjoying their commute. However, with the rise of bicycle riding, comes an increase in bicycle accidents. These accidents almost always occur against a vehicle, leaving bicycle riders in an extremely vulnerable position.
Although all motorists are meant to share the road, this isn’t always the reality. If you suffered as a result of another’s negligence in a bicycle accident, you aren’t alone. The physical consequences of a bicycle accident can be disastrous, especially as bicycle riders are quite exposed. Even if one is wearing a helmet, and knee and elbow pads, one’s entire body is exposed to various possibilities such as broken bones, burns, concussions, internal bleeding, organ injuries, fractures, lacerations, etc. Any of these injuries can wreak havoc on your life in a number of ways, and if you have suffered from any of the aforementioned, you deserve compensation.
The following are the most common auto vs. bicycle collisions:
- Intersection collisions
- Left-hand turn accidents
- Open-door accidents
- Unsafe roadway conditions
- Unexpected reversals
- Merging and lane changes
- Motorists not keeping enough distance
