Any accident is dangerous, but bicyclists are especially at risk for accident-related injuries due to the lack of protection. Any car crash with a bicyclist can cause devastating, serious injuries, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Concussions
  • Fractured bones
  • Spine injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Death

Bicyclists Are In Danger Of Negligent Drivers

If drivers took the necessary precautions when getting in and out of their cars or while driving, then many terrible injuries to adults and children on bikes could be avoided. Most bicycle injuries are caused by negligent drivers. Some ways that drivers are hurting bicyclists are by:

  • Making A Turn Without Looking. Oftentimes, drivers do not check their blind spots when turning or switching lanes, causing serious injuries to bicyclists who may already be in the lane. Bicycle injury lawyers can help you determine the cause of the accident and who is liable.
  • Pulling Out of a Driveway Without Looking. Drivers are often guilty of being in a hurry and not taking the time to check their mirrors before pulling out of a driveway. This type of negligent behavior often results in injury for bicyclists, and requires the assistance of a bicycle injury lawyer to help file for compensation and make sure the drivers are more careful next time.
  • Opening a Car Door Without Looking. Again, drivers are often in a hurry and their need to get out of the car overrides the need to make sure there are no kids or adults riding bikes in the area. Bicycle injury lawyers are able to ease your stress and worry by helping you make sure the guilty party is held responsible and you are properly compensated.
  • Driving Under the Influence. Intoxication causes confusion, forgetfulness and is probably the worst type of negligence. If you were injured by a drunk diver while riding your bicycle, please call our bicycle injury lawyers to make sure that intoxicated drivers are held responsible for their actions and that you are well compensated for any sustained physical or emotional damage.
