Proving Negligence in Bicycle Accident Cases

Collisions can cause injury and permanent disability for cyclists, especially since protective equipment like helmets and reflective vests do little to prevent bodily harm or, unfortunately, brain injuries. As a rider, you’re entitled to hold careless drivers responsible for these damages. However, you need a competent team of bicycle accident lawyers to prove negligence. 

Take a look at the most common causes of bicycle accidents:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Weaving through traffic
  • Following too closely
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Turning without looking
  • Running a red light
  • Failure to yield
  • Drunk driving
  • Driver fatigue

After a cyclist crash, a driver’s car insurance carrier may offer a low settlement, deny responsibility, or even blame the rider. To get adequate financial restitution, you should always hire a bicycle accident lawyer to handle your case.

Proving the Bicyclist was Not Negligent

In a few states that adopt the principle of contributory negligence, if a jury finds that a bicyclist was negligent while operating their bicycle, even minimally compared to the driver’s negligence, the bicyclist may not be able to claim damages for the crash. Insurers and corporate defendants often leverage this, attempting to demonstrate that the bicyclist was not abiding by the local laws regarding bicycle riding locations.

The laws provide guidelines on where bicyclists are supposed to ride and their rights, which can vary based on the crash location. Moreover, local jurisdictions have the authority to set their own rules on where bicycling is permitted. If you or a loved one has been injured while bicycling, engaging experienced personal injury attorneys knowledgeable about these specific laws and local regulations is crucial.
