Bike Accident Cases

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), 743 bicyclists were killed and an estimated 48,000 injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2013. Bicyclists have the right to “share the road” with automobile drivers, and are therefore expected to follow traffic laws. Even so, they are in a drastically different position on the roads because of their vulnerability. Bicyclists are most at risk being involved in an accident when they are stopping or passing through an intersection. 45% of accidents involving cars and bicycles happen at intersections. As with any other traffic accident, liability for bicycle accidents are based on negligence of those causing or contributing to the accident.
