COMMON REASONS FOR A BICYCLE ACCIDENT
Even when they follow all the traffic rules, bicyclists often get into serious collisions with cars and trucks. Drivers fail to respect riders’ right of way and turn in front of them. They drive into bike lanes and cut riders off. Even parked cars can become a menace when someone inside opens their door without first making sure a bike is not approaching.
As a pedestrian, you know to follow traffic signals and look both ways when crossing the street. Unfortunately, a nearby driver may not be as responsible and cautious as you. You can get seriously hurt by a drunk driver, distracted driver or someone breaking traffic laws. The resulting collision can lead to permanent brain injuries, paralysis or other major disabilities.
