Types of Cases We Handle
There are laws that to protect cyclists from the dangers of motor vehicle drivers. One example are designated bike lanes, which provides a buffer zone between them and vehicles. Another example is through enforcing speed limits those areas. A large number of bicycle accidents are caused by speeding vehicles.
Here are other examples of some of the most common cycling accidents:
- Vehicles cutting off cyclists
- Vehicles running red lights or stop signs
- Vehicles change lanes without looking or signaling
- Cyclist injured by an impaired or intoxicated driver
- Cyclists struck by or injured by obstacles on the road
Even cyclists who have been riding for years, and have agility, riding skills and awareness of how best to avoid danger, cannot control the actions of others. Most of the time, such an accident can happen when drivers are not paying close attention to what is around them, which in turn, is what causes many of these cycling accidents.
