You don’t want to regret not
pursuing your bicycle
claim in the future.
Like pedestrians, victims of bicycle accidents are at a high risk of a serious injury or fatality when involved crashing with a motorist. Nearly 70% involve of the fatalities involve injury to the head. Needless to say, wearing a helmet is an effective way to protect yourself from a serious head injury. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), from 2001 to 2013, the number of bicyclist injuries and fatalities in the United States substantially increased.
In order for a bicyclist to pursue a claim against a driver, the bicyclist must prove the driver was negligent. Like drivers, bicyclists are obligated to obey the rules of the road. Furthermore, most cities have their own set of rules and regulations for bicyclists.
Common bicycle accidents are:
- Drivers opening their door without looking for oncoming traffic.
- Drivers pulling out of a driveway or an alley.
- Drivers making a turn without looking for a clear intersection.
