Common Causes of Bicycle Crashes
Due to the consistent increases in petroleum-based transportation costs, more and more people are looking to alternative modes of transport.
While there can be a variety of reasons for this - which can include the health and cost saving related benefits of cycling - there are also many dangers that riders can face which may cause a serious personal injury.
These dangers are largely due to negligent motorists either not paying attention to the task of driving or that they are unwilling to share the roadway.
However, a more comprehensive list of reasons include (but are not limited to):
- Lack of visibility
- Rider error
- Motorists not providing enough room when overtaking
- Bad roads
- Failure to obey traffic signals
- Road rage
- Drivers not yielding right of way
It's worth noting that should you or a loved one become the victim of an accident, do NOT provide a statement to the drivers insurance company until you have called the lawyers here at Greg Monforton and Partners.
Any information that you provide may be used against you should you decide to pursue a legal solution for compensation. Furthermore, the insurance company may also pressure you to sign a release without giving you the opportunity to investigate your legal options.
Injuries From Bicycle Accidents
While many bicycle riders wear approved safety equipment when on their bikes, it's important to note that due to the exposed nature of most bicycles, they offer very little in terms of rider protection.
Furthermore, as more and more riders are having to use motorways due to a lack of dedicated cycling lanes &/or paths, the risk of rider injury increases significantly.
With this in mind, some of the most common injuries that riders can suffer from include:
- Gravel rash
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Internal injuries
- Facial disfigurement
- Dental injuries
As many of these injuries can take months to heal, riders often discover that they are unable to perform their regular duties at work. At our firm, we understand the impacts of these types of scenarios and can help to seek fair and just compensation for any losses that an individual may experience after a collision.
