Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists have the right to share the road, but motorists and conditions do not always oblige.

Common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Inattentive motorists: Many drivers do not look out for cyclists even when they're driving adjacent to a bike lane. Right-hand turns through a bike lane are especially dangerous for cyclists.
  • Careless pedestrians: Pedestrians who dart out into the street may force bikes to swerve to avoid contact. This can cause a worse collision with a vehicle or fixed object.
  • Road conditions: Potholes, debris and even wet leaves can create hazards for cyclists.
  • Cyclist error: Bike riders are required to follow the rules of the road. Blowing through stop signs and turning without using hand signals can easily cause an accident.
  • Defective equipment: When bike parts fail to function at a crucial moment or helmets do not perform to specifications, cyclists can be seriously injured.

Whether the cause of your accident is negligence or products liability, our award-winning personal injury firm has the knowledge and resources to move your case toward a successful conclusion.

Liability Matters in Bicycle Accident Cases in Indiana

As in car accidents, you must prove that someone beside yourself is responsible for your bicycle accident to collect any compensation for your injuries. Indiana has a contributory fault law that limits your compensation if you share some responsibility for your injuries and bars recovery altogether if you were more than 50 percent to blame.
