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.

Client Testimonials

Real People. Real Experiences
  • “Many friends suggested I contact the Slusser Law Firm. I am glad I did.”

    When I was injured in a motorcycle accident while driving through a construction zone, many friends suggested I contact the Slusser Law Firm. I am glad I did. Attorneys Chris Slusser and John Solt came to visit me in the hospital. The Slusser Law Firm filed suit on my behalf.

    Through the long recovery and rehabilitation process Attorneys Slusser and Solt and the team investigated, hired experts, took depositions and kept me informed of everything along the way. In the end, they secured me a cash settlement that has helped transform my life. Thank you to everyone at the firm for all your tireless work and for believing in my case.

  • “A trusted lawyer who is always there.”

    I have been nothing but completely satisfied and impressed with Chris and his staff at the Slusser Law Firm for years. I have the privilege of working with them on Professional level as a Chairman of a sewer authority who was left with a bad taste in my mouth for lawyers because of our past solicitor who truly was not cost effective and responsible to fact that we as an authority needed to be mindful of our spending in order to keep our rates down for our elderly population of rate payers.

    I interviewed many possible candidates to replace said solicitor and Chris by far stood out to me because of his professionalism and understanding to what we needed and our demographics as an area made up of elderly rate payers living on fixed incomes. I am pleased to say it was one of the best moves we made and pleased to say we as an Authority are going on 8 plus years with Chris and his team guiding us legally and look forward to many more years working with them.

    On a personal level I have now a trusted lawyer who is always there to give guidance in buying property or contract review and Is trusted so much I referred my Father to him for guidance after my Mother passed.
