Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

The same issues that endanger motorcyclists are present with bicycle riders as well. Cyclists are even more exposed to injury than motorcyclists and are more sensitive to road faults. The handling of a bicycle is less stable than a motorcycle, and the ability to take evasive action is often less than that of a motorcycle, given the much slower speed available to the cyclist. Sadly, many bicycle accidents are caused by motorists, meaning that even though the cyclist is rarely at fault, it is generally them who suffer far worse injuries in a crash.

  • Factors that regularly lead to bicycle crashes include:
  • Speeding, turning without signaling, tailgating and other reckless driving.
  • Motorists not looking out for cyclists while behind the wheel. Even those who are in a parked vehicle may also cause a door collision if a bicyclist collides with a car door that is suddenly opened in front of them.
  • Driving under the influence or drugs and or alcohol.
  • Distracted driving, such as texting while driving, eating while driving and more.
  • Not following traffic laws, signs or signals. One tricky situation is if the driver has a stop sign, but the cyclist does not. In this scenario the bicyclist may pass through the intersection, however a driver may fail to see the bicyclist causing a crash.
  • Bicycle riders possesses all the rights and responsibilities of motor vehicle drivers. They are subject to the same rules of the road and have an equal right to be on those roads, and other drivers must be attentive and drive with the appropriate caution around them. If both cyclists and motorists were more vigilant on the road, the number of accidents would surely decrease.

Client Reviews

Incredible experience with this law firm.

“With little to no knowledge on how to pursue the lady that hit me, I was educated quickly on the process of taking action. My own insurance company couldn’t even point me in the right direction. It didn’t help that this lady denied fault in the police report. However, because Blake and his team cared so much and believed in my case they were able to prove this lady was driving recklessly when she hit me. Despite the police officer taking a vague report of the actions that occurred that day, due to photos and where I was hit (passenger side doors) we were able to prove she was 100% at fault.

I can’t say this enough. Thank you so much Blake for treating me like family.”
