Understanding Common Causes Of Bicycle Crashes
Cycling accidents can happen due to any number of reasons. Some of the most common include:
- Distracted driving: getting hit by an inattentive driver who may have been texting while driving or just wasn’t paying attention
- Dooring: that is, getting struck by a door as the driver is exiting a parked vehicle
- Defective bicycle parts: the bike itself may have contributed to the crash – for example, if there were faulty brakes or tires
- Poor road design or maintenance: for example, hazardous intersections, malfunctioning semaphores or gaps in the pavement
Our attorneys have robust experience handling all kinds of bicycle crash cases, including those resulting in devastating head injuries. We know what to look for when building a strong case.
Does Insurance Cover Bike Accidents?
If you were hit by a driver, their insurance should kick in and cover your damages, up to the policy limits. But it’s not always that straightforward. They may try to shift the blame to you, minimize your damages or needlessly delay your claim. That’s why you need a strong attorney by your side.
If the bike accident involved another cyclist or pedestrian, insurance won’t come into play. You may still have a personal injury claim against any negligent parties.
