Causes of Bicycle-Car Accidents
Most often, bicycle-car accidents are caused by driver inattention or a driver’s refusal to yield the right of way to a bicycle. It is not uncommon for a car to roll through a stop sign, hitting a bicyclist entering the intersection. Often, these accidents could be avoided if the driver of the vehicle took the time to be aware of bicyclists sharing the road.
Other causes of bicycle-car accidents include:
- Opening a car door into a bike lane without checking for an approaching bicycle
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Distracted driving
The car does not have to be moving fast for you to suffer serious, possibly even life-threatening injuries on a bicycle. We are here to negotiate with the insurance companies so that you can receive the treatment you need to recover from these catastrophic injuries.
Damages in Bicycle-Car Accident Claims
You may be entitled to receive compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
The sooner we begin working on your case, the easier it will be to gather evidence while it is still fresh. To ensure the greatest likelihood of success in your claim, we will need to evaluate the accident scene in a timely manner to prove the other driver’s negligence.
