Why Bicycle Accident Cases Require Bicycle Accident Attorneys

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, bicycle accidents in the United States led to more than 1,000 deaths in 2015 and the sum of fatal and non-fatal bicycle accidents lead to a lifetime loss of $10 billion every year. Those who have been injured or killed in a bicycle accident deserve compensation for the medical costs and the loss of income that are the direct result of someone else’s negligence.

To get this compensation, though, you’ll need to be able to assemble all the evidence, witnesses, and experts required to prove fault right at the moment when you are at your weakest. Your bicycle accident likely led to significant physical injuries and emotional distress, making it even harder to prepare for a claim against a powerful insurance company. By hiring a bicycle accident lawyer, you can rest easier knowing that you have an experienced team on your side, fighting for what matters to you.

In addition, a bicycle accident lawyer will know all the laws related to your case and how to use them to your benefit. A good lawyer will also have experience working with and against the insurance companies and know how to secure victories through settlements or in the courtroom. These invaluable skills and knowledge can make all the difference in whether you receive compensation or are forced to live without justice or the means you need to heal and get back to your life.

Common Causes of Bike Accidents

While bicycle accidents are often catastrophic, they are not all the same. There are many different ways a bicycle accident can occur, and many different individuals and businesses that might be held accountable for the injuries and other costs associated with the crash. Common causes of bike accidents include:

  • Motorist turning right into a bicycle lane
  • Motorist turning left in an intersection without using a signal or at too great a speed
  • Motorist switching lanes ahead of a cyclist without enough space or warning
  • Motorist “dooring” (opening a door in front of someone) a cyclist
  • Motorist failing to stop at a red light or stop sign
  • Motorist rear ending a cyclist
  • Debris on the roadway or bicycle path
  • Potholes or other poor road maintenance
  • Overgrown foliage and other landscaping issues
  • Dog or other animal chase and bite

These are, again, only the most common bicycle accident cases, and there are plenty of other potential cases. If your case does not match the above list, the best course is to speak with a bicycle accident attorney to find out about the quality of your claim.

Any bicycle accident, no matter its specifics, carries a very significant risk of causing serious injury to the cyclist. Some of the most common injuries from these accidents include:

  • Head trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts, scrapes, and lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Spinal injuries
  • Emotional trauma
  • Death

Overcoming any injury can be difficult and may require extensive costs for immediate medical care and future physical therapy. There is also the potential for lost income in the present and in the future.
