Bicycle accidents take place on all kinds of roads, in all types of weather, and under all types of conditions. However, some conditions are more dangerous than others. Generally, intersections are the most dangerous for cyclists, who can experience bike accidents when they are struck by a vehicle who disregard the cyclist’s right of way or refuses to yield. Merging, turning, and stopping are all risky actions for cyclists, who are no match for the weight or speed of passenger vehicles.
Catastrophic injury ranging from broken bones to facial disfigurement, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, and even death are far too common with many car/bike accidents. Often, these accidents take place because motorists are ignorant of their obligations to cyclists or choose to ignore them in favor of getting to their destination more quickly.
Fortunately for injured cyclists, it is possible to take negligent drivers to task for their role in bike accidents and injuries. A personal injury lawsuit can help an injured cyclist claim financial compensation for his or her injuries, pay for future medical treatment and necessary rehabilitation, and start to make up for the pain and suffering associated with the injury.
