How Motorists Cause Bicycle Accidents
Some people assume that because roads were built for automobiles, motorists deserve to be the number one priority on the road. This, however, is not the case. Drivers must be vigilant and safely operate alongside all other vehicles on the road, including bicycles. When motorists fail to share the road, bicyclists can be put in significant and even life-threatening danger.
Common ways motorists cause bicycle accidents include:
- Tailgating (following too closely)
- Failing to look before exiting a vehicle (door injuries)
- Failing to properly signal lane changes and turns
- Drifting into bicycle lanes and road shoulders
- Driving while impaired (alcohol, fatigue, etc.)
- Driving while distracted (texting, phone calls, etc.)
If any one of these factors contributed to your bicycle accident injury, then our firm is ready to hear from you. Our skilled bicycle injury attorneys are prepared to assess the circumstances of your case and help you take the next steps towards the restitution you deserve.
