Bicycle in the Street After Accident with Car

Bicycle Accidents Cause Devastating Injuries

Cyclists have the same legal right to use the roads as drivers of motor vehicles. Unfortunately, many drivers are either unaware of the rules or choose not to follow them.

People on bikes don’t have the same protection as those in cars, so they are more likely to suffer severe injuries in the event of an accident. When negligence or recklessness results in an accident that causes injury to the cyclist, the vehicle driver may be held responsible.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Bike Accidents?

Some of the common causes of bike accidents include:

  • A car cutting off a cyclist
  • Rear-end collisions
  • A car turning in front of a bicycle
  • Doors opening from parked cars
  • A driver running a red light or stop sign
  • A defective bike
  • Roads in poor condition
  • Animal attacks

How Is Liability Determined in a Bike Accident?

The party responsible for a bike accident depends on the situation. For example, a driver may be held liable for unsafe or careless driving.

In other situations, a dog’s owner, a bicycle manufacturer, or a government agency may be held liable for injuries caused in an accident. Our Luzerne County bicycle accident attorneys can evaluate your situation to determine liability.

Don’t Negotiate With the Insurance Company Alone

You shouldn’t be surprised if the insurance company contacts you to offer a settlement for your injuries.

You also shouldn’t speak to the insurance company or accept a settlement without speaking to an attorney because you may be leaving yourself unprotected and later find that the settlement is not enough to meet your financial needs.

Our lawyers can look out for your best interests and protect your rights.
