Bicyclists Are In Danger Of Negligent Drivers

Most serious bicycle injuries are caused by negligent drivers. If drivers paid closer attention many terrible injuries to children and adults on bikes could be avoided. Some of the most common bicycle accidents are caused by drivers: Making turns or lane changes without looking.

Pulling out of a driveway without looking.
Opening a Car Doors Without Looking.
Running or “rolling” stop lights or stop signs.
Driving while distracted or under the influence.

Drivers are often in a hurry and their need to get where they are going can override the need to make sure there are no kids or adults riding bikes in the area. Distractions such as talking on cell phones or to other people in the vehicle have been proved to reduce a driver’s ability to react in time to prevent an accident. Most dangerous off all intoxication can causes confusion, distraction and is probably the worst type of negligence. If you or a loved one was injured by a drunk diver while riding a bicycle, please call our bicycle injury lawyers to make sure that intoxicated drivers are held responsible for their actions and that you are well compensated for any sustained physical or emotional damage.
