Statistically, bicycle collisions with automobiles make up one-third of bicycle accidents, however they result in a vast majority of the serious and catastrophic bicycle accident injuries.

In most bicycle accident cases the bicyclist was observing proper safety laws, while the automobile operator either:

  • Not adhering to traffic and safety laws;
  • Was driving aggressively;
  • Not maintaining due vigilance as to his or her surroundings;
  • Was driving while impaired by alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs;
  • Or performing some type of act while driving that distracted the automobile driver from paying proper attention, such as talking or texting on a cellular phone, eating, changing music, or other distractive actions.

The law allows the victim of a bicycle accident who is injured as a result of the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of another to legally seek compensation and potential monetary damages.

Bicycle accident and injury liability claims may be resolved through mediation, a trial by judge, or a trial by jury. For the purposes of the information provided below, the "court" or "jury" will be referred to as the "court."

The first thing the court will establish is if there is sufficient evidence establishing who is at fault and who is the victim. The court will also ensure that both parties "in good faith" made every reasonable effort to resolve the bicycle accident and injury dispute through proper negotiation and/or mediation. If the bicycle accident and injury dispute could not be successfully resolved through negotiation and/or mediation, the court will hear relevant evidence and witnesses relating to the accident.

The court will also consider other important issues in determining appropriate compensation and potential monetary damages relating to your bicycle accident injury case including, but not limited to:

  • Injuries as a direct result of a bicycle accident personal injury;
  • Medical bills directly related to you or your loved ones injuries, including medical treatment, physical therapy &, rehabilitation costs, prescription costs, necessary medical equipment, and if necessary, long term or permanent treatment treatment and care;
  • Lost Wages;
  • Pain and Suffering;
  • Permanent or long-term diminished quality of life.

In the event that a death has resulted from a bicycle accident, immediate family members of the victim may seek justice in the form of a wrongful death liability lawsuit.
