Injuries from Bicycle Accidents
Even if a bicyclist is wearing a helmet, the risk of injury is still high. Most often, it is irresponsible or negligent drivers that cause accidents with bicyclists. Riders are unprotected and therefore subject to impact with the car, pavement, or other stationary surfaces and can suffer complicated injuries.
Common injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Nerve damage
- Facial injuries
- Brain injuries
Almost every rider will see abrasions and scrapes or cuts as a result of the collision as well. Bicyclists and pedestrians alike are more likely to be hit in intersections than anywhere else on the road. Drivers making right-hand turns often fail to look before moving and can run into bicyclists. Even the slow movement of a car turning from a stop can be enough to cause severe injuries upon impact. If you have been hurt, the Law Office of Scott B. Brilliant can help.
Proving Negligence in a Bicycle Accident Claim
Bicycle accidents can have several different causes, many of which are motorist-related. Cyclists constantly have to be on the lookout for drivers who are making unsafe lane changes, driving too close to bike lanes, texting while driving, or engaging in some other type of distracted behavior.
For injured bicycle riders, seeking compensation is an important part of the recovery process. However, a successful claim does not come automatically. To hold a driver responsible for your accident, you will need to prove that their negligence was the direct result of your accident and injuries.
Some of the reasons a driver can be held liable for your damages include:
- Unsafe lane changes
- Distracted driving
- Weaving through traffic
- Turning without looking
- Failure to yield
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Driver fatigue
- Impaired driving
Regardless of how the accident was caused, you deserve to be compensated for your losses. The Law Office of Scott B. Brilliant is here to help you hold a negligent driver accountable. Work with an attorney you can trust to carefully investigate your case and present compelling evidence on your behalf.
