Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Protect Your Rights as a Cyclist! Call (801) 900-4681.

Bright yellow signs remind drivers to “share the road” with bicyclists. It is their legal right to ride alongside vehicles; however, sharing the road can put bikers in a uniquely vulnerable position. Bikers and motorcyclists ride without the protective airbags, metal barriers, and sheer bulk that automobiles provide drivers.

Because of this vulnerability, bike accidents can result in immense damage to the cyclist. Injuries sustained from such an accident can range greatly.

For example, some of the most common include:

  • Road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations requiring stitches
  • Concussion
  • Chipped or knocked out teeth
  • Damages to the head, muscles, or tissues

This is why Lowe Law Group offers representation from skilled bicycle accident lawyers. We have recovered millions and offer a no-fee unless we win, guaranteed if we don’t recover compensation on your behalf.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

A bicycle accident is an incident involving a collision, fall, or mishap while riding a bicycle. These accidents can result in injuries to the cyclist, damage to the bicycle, and, in severe cases, even fatalities.

There are various causes of bicycle accidents, some of which include:

  • Vehicle Collisions: Accidents involving motor vehicles often occur due to drivers failing to notice cyclists, making sudden turns, running red lights or stop signs, or not giving enough space to cyclists.
  • Dooring: When a parked car occupant opens a car door without checking for cyclists, it can lead to a collision known as "dooring."
  • Poor Road Conditions: Uneven roads, potholes, debris, or slippery surfaces can cause cyclists to lose control and crash.
  • Distracted Riding: Cyclists using phones, listening to music, or being otherwise distracted can become less aware of their surroundings, leading to accidents.
  • Failure to Obey Traffic Laws: Ignoring traffic signals, riding against traffic, or not yielding to pedestrians can result in accidents.
  • Lack of Visibility: Riding at night without proper lights, reflective gear, or in adverse weather conditions reduces visibility and increases the risk of accidents.
  • Inexperienced Cyclists: Lack of experience in handling a bicycle, especially in traffic, can lead to accidents due to poor judgment or handling skills.
  • Driver Aggression or Road Rage: Altercations between cyclists and motorists can escalate, resulting in accidents.
  • Unsafe Overtaking: Motorists overtaking cyclists without allowing enough space or cutting them off can cause accidents.
  • Mechanical Failures: Issues with the bicycle itself, such as brake failures or tire blowouts, can lead to accidents.

The Risk of Head Injury in Bike Accidents

The most common type of injury suffered in a bicycle accident is a head injury. Even a slow bump from a car can send a cyclist flying over the handlebars and crashing onto their skull. Bicycle accidents are often devastating, with serious head or brain injuries leading to lifelong repercussions.

If you or a loved one suffered a head or traumatic brain injury in a bicycle accident, it is more important than ever for you to retain qualified counsel. Our team can thoroughly assess your injuries and ensure you are properly compensated for any related expenses, including future costs of living, lost earning potential, and more.

What to Do After a Bicycle Accident

If you've been injured in a bicycle accident, taking certain steps is crucial to ensure your well-being, gather necessary information, and potentially protect your legal rights.

Here are the steps you should consider:

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Your health is the priority. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, it's essential to get checked by a healthcare professional. Some injuries might not be immediately apparent but could be serious.
  2. Contact Law Enforcement: Call the police to report the accident. Having an official report can be valuable for insurance claims and legal purposes. Ensure the police document the scene and collect information from involved parties and witnesses.
  3. Exchange Information: Exchange contact, insurance, and identification details with the other parties involved in the accident. Get names, addresses, phone numbers, license plate numbers, and insurance information.
  4. Document the Scene: If possible, take photos or videos of the accident scene, including your injuries, property damage, road conditions, and any other relevant details. These can serve as evidence later.
  5. Get Witness Information: If there are witnesses, ask for their names and contact information. Their statements can be valuable in determining what happened.
  6. Don't Admit Fault: Avoid admitting fault or making statements that could be interpreted as an admission of guilt. Stick to factual information when speaking with the police, other parties, or witnesses.
  7. Notify Your Insurance Company: Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible. Provide them with accurate information about the incident.
  8. Preserve Evidence: Keep any damaged clothing, equipment, or the bicycle itself as evidence. This might be useful for insurance claims or legal proceedings.
  9. Consult an Attorney: Consider consulting a personal injury attorney experienced in handling bicycle accidents. They can provide guidance on your legal rights, help with insurance claims, and represent you if you decide to pursue legal action.
  10. Keep Records: Keep track of all medical records, expenses related to the accident, and any communication with insurance companies, law enforcement, or healthcare providers.
  11. Follow-Up on Medical Treatment: Adhere to your doctor's recommendations and attend all follow-up appointments. Document all medical treatment received due to the accident.

Remember, the steps to take after a bicycle accident may vary depending on the severity of the injuries and the specific circumstances of the incident. Prioritize your health and safety, and seek legal advice from our firm if you have concerns about your rights or the handling of the situation.
