Motorist Negligence & Bicyclist Injuries
Collisions between a motor vehicle and bicycle can be extremely serious for the cyclist. These individuals do not benefit from cabin safety features during these collisions and, due to exposure to direct impacts, can suffer serious and even catastrophic injuries.
Motorists can be held accountability for these injuries when:
- They exit a vehicle without checking bike lanes (door injuries)
- They are speeding
- They are impaired by drugs or alcohol
- They execute turns without signaling/looking
- They switch lanes without signaling/looking
- They drift into road shoulders or bike lanes
- They are driving distracted (phone, radio, devices, etc.)
