If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your resulting injuries and damages. Automobile drivers have a duty to share the road with bicyclists and respect their rights. Unfortunately, impatient, reckless, and distracted drivers do not exercise the care and caution they should, and innocent bicyclists are injured as a result.

Motor vehicle collisions with bicycles can lead to severe and catastrophic injuries. As mentioned above, drivers are required to respect bicyclists’ rights on the road. Unfortunately, they do not always do that, and bicycle accidents happen as a result.

Dangerous road conditions, such as potholes, road obstructions, poorly marked intersections, and poorly designed roadways, frequently lead to bicycle accidents. Other common accident causes include bicycle defects, dogs chasing or running in front of bicycles, electric scooter collisions, dooring incidents, and negligent bicycle repairs.
