Accidents Involving Bicycles
Accidents involving automobiles and bicycles can lead to severe injury and death. Similar to other auto accidents, we must evaluate which party was negligent in a bicycle accident, and to what degree.
Both drivers and cyclists are required to obey the rules of the road, so we have to analyze the circumstances in depth to determine culpability.
Who is at fault in a bicycle accident?
Driver negligence can include speeding, running a stop sign or traffic light, drifting into the bike lane, or otherwise distracted driving (texting, for example).
Cyclist negligence can include riding the wrong way on a one-way street, running a stop sign, and turning abruptly into traffic
