BICYCLE ACCIDENT

BICYCLE ACCIDENT

According to most state laws, bicycles are considered vehicles, which means they have the same rights and responsibilities as other vehicle operators.

Unfortunately, riding a bicycle in our car-infested roads has become a dangerous ordeal. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to pay proper attention around bicycle riders; or blatantly choose to ignore them.

On the other hand, many bicyclists often violate the law by not stopping at traffic lights, stop signs, or carelessly ride against traffic or worst yet, zigzag amongst vehicles in congested roads.

According to Highway Safety Association between 2010 and 2012, U.S. bicyclist deaths increased by 16%. With 338 cyclists killed in the same period, California is our Union’s Bicycle Death Capital. In other words, California’s bicycle death per capita is 40% higher than the national average. And many more California bicyclists—more than 10,000—are seriously injured in road accidents every year.

In addition to rough riding and negligent driving, lack of helmet use coupled with drugs and alcohol contribute to bicyclist deaths and grave injuries.

In 2012, two-third or more of bicyclists, who lost their lives, were not wearing helmets; and 28% of riders age 16 and older had blood alcohol concentrations of .08% or higher, which is considered impaired.

Meet Your Capable, Credible and Compassionate Chosen Bicycle Accident Lawyer

While biking, if you get hit and injured by a truck, bus or an automobile, you should seek immediate medical care. If possible, you should also try to collect some information about the accident, before you leave the scene:

  • Get the contact information of the at-fault driver, as well as any witnesses who were in the area at the time of the accident;
  • Use your phone to take pictures of the scene, including your injuries, your bike, and the car that hit you;
  • Call the police, so he or she can file an official accident report;
  • Make sure, you talk to your Chosen Lawyer before speaking to the insurance companies: especially the insurance company representing the at-fault driver;
  • As you may know, some states are comparative negligence states. This means that what you say about the accident to the opposing parties may reduce the amount of your recovery;
  • Keep track of the costs associated with repairing or replacing your bicycle; days off work; medical and incidental costs, etc.

You should also contact a Competent, Credible and Compassionate Chosen Bicycle Accident Lawyer, right away. Your Chosen Lawyer not only will inform you of your rights and duties, but also help you get the needed medical attention: even if you do not have medical insurance.
