Bicyclist Rights

Bicyclist Rights

Do you know your rights on the road?

Bicyclists have almost the same rights as motorists when riding in the street, with few variations. Cyclists obviously cannot accelerate as quickly as motor vehicles, nor can they travel as fast in most cases. Bicyclists have the same rights as motorists. Motorists sharing the road must give cyclists adequate space when passing and must yield the right of way when turning or changing lanes, just like they do with other motorists. Failure to do so could result in a serious accident for which the cyclist is not liable.

Who is liable for my bicycle accident?

Few bicycle accidents are the cyclist's fault, especially in bicycle and car accidents. Most of these collisions are the fault of the motorist who failed to pay attention or yield the right-of-way. Other bicycle accidents are caused by defective bicycle equipment. As long as you were following the rules of the road and were properly equipped to ride (including reflectors, brakes, helmet, etc.),then you have every right to file a personal injury claim against the motorist who hit you.

“Got into a bicycle vs car mishap resulting in a few nights in the ICU thus hospital bills were mounting in the low 6 figures. Shopped around for legal guidance which led me to attorney and fellow cyclist Richard Duquette who came highly recommended in the San Diego cycling community. The cohesive team worked hard on my behalf and Duquette's generational experience helped navigate and apply pressure to the appropriate parties when necessary. Was able to get the maximum recovery so I could recover without the added stress of paying hospital bills over the next decade. Would highly recommend.”
