Bicyclists are a growing portion of the traffic on our streets. Even with the increase in the number of bike lanes and bike trails, bicyclists still face a grave risk of injury from accidents involving motor vehicles. Too many motorists fail to see bike riders. Those who do often fail to recognize or respect the amount of space that is necessary for both vehicles to share the road.
Collisions involving motor vehicles and bicycles often cause very serious, sometimes fatal, injuries for the bike rider. Injuries to the brain and spine are not uncommon in serious bicycle/motor vehicle collisions. Such serious injuries can devastate a person’s life. The road to recovery can be long and arduous. Securing the full compensation can help a person on his or her journey toward recovery by making necessary medical treatment available and providing a degree of financial support that allows a person to focus on recovering.
Some common types of bicycle accidents include:
- Cars and trucks striking bicycles while turning
- Dooring (colliding with a car door that was opened into the path of a bicycle)
- Passing without providing a bike rider sufficient space for safe operation
