Bicycle Accident

While riding a bicycle is a thrill and pleasure, bicyclists are extremely vulnerable to becoming seriously injured when sharing the road with vehicles. Unfortunately, most drivers are too distracted or careless to pay sufficient attention for nearby bicyclists. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident involving a car or truck, we at FVF Law can help you make the negligent driver or individual responsible. After launching a thorough investigation, we may discover that the at-fault driver was distracted, perhaps because of texting while driving. Over the years, our firm has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of personal injury victims. With our help, you may be awarded the fair compensation you need to pay for all the costs related to your bicycle accident.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Far too often we see bicyclists who have been injured in similar situations and for the same reasons – namely driver negligence. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a significant portion of bicycle accidents were caused by motor vehicle operators. Data from 2012 from the NHTSA shows that nearly a third of injuries were caused by collisions with cars. Another source of bicycle accidents is poor roadways and walkways such as uneven sidewalks or cracks.

What are the common ways a bicyclist is injured?
  • Drivers making left turns
  • Drivers opening doors
  • Drivers backing out of a driveway or parking lot
  • Driver making right turn in bicycle lane
  • Lane merging
  • Collisions at intersections
