Bicycle & Car Accidents

Compensation for Catastrophic Bike Accidents

Most serious bicycle accidents are those than involve a vehicle. Bicyclists have the same rights as vehicles when riding in the streets. Cyclists must obey the same traffic laws (with a few variations) and should be shown the same courtesy as other motorists on the road. Unfortunately, few motorists yield the proper right of way to cyclists, or even notice that they are in the road. The resulting accidents can be devastating for an unsuspecting bicyclist.

Even small cars weigh more than a ton on average. This means that, when a car hits a cyclist, the cyclist is being hit by more than 2,000 pounds of solid metal. If the vehicle that hits the cyclist is travelling at high speeds, then wrongful death is very possible since the bicyclist has little to protect them besides a helmet.

Even at lower speeds, a bicyclist can suffer from road rash, cuts and lacerations from broken glass or sharp metal edges, broken bones, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Take immediate action to recover your damages if you were hit by a negligent motorist while riding your bike.
