Let the Wright Law Firm Be Your Advocate When You've Been Involved in a Bicycle Accident

Bicycling can be a great way to get from place to place. It is good for the environment and a healthy mode of transportation for the cyclist. However, as an avid cyclist with years of experience racing road and mountain bikes, attorney William Wright understands all too well that it can also prove extremely dangerous. Since bicycles offer little to no protection, accidents often lead to many different injuries, and in some cases, fatalities. A bicycle accident attorney can help cyclists to recover for their injuries.

The most common causes of bicycle accidents often occur when:

  • Exiting a Private Drive
  • Riding Against Traffic
  • A Car is Stopping at a Traffic Light or Stop Sign
  • A Car is Passing a Bicycle
  • A Car is Making a Right Turn
  • A Car is Making a Left Turn
  • The Bicyclist is a Child
  • A Driver is Impaired
  • A Car Door is Opened
  • A Bicyclist is Riding on the Sidewalk

Prevalence of Bicycle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2016, there were 840 bicyclists killed in traffic crashes in the U.S. This was up from 818 in 2015. Despite the fact that bicycles on the roadway are considered to be vehicles with the same rights and responsibilities as motorized vehicles, drivers often fail to yield to them as they do other motorists. When a motorist comes into contact with a cyclist it can result in severe injuries.

Common types of bicycle accident injuries include:

  • Amputation
  • Bone Fractures
  • Brain Injury
  • Dental Injury
  • Facial Injury
  • Fatalities
  • Head Injury
  • Joint Dislocation
  • Neck Injury
  • Nerve Damage
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal Cord Injury
