Why Bicycle Accidents Happen
There are several common reasons that bicycle accidents occur, including:
- Hazardous roadways
- Negligent drivers
- Defective/malfunctioning bicycle
If the city, county, or state for any reason did not properly identify the hazardous conditions of the road, they could be held liable for any injuries sustained in a bicycle accident they caused. Bicycle manufacturers can also be held responsible for bikes that malfunction or are defective and cause injuries. These types of accidents can cause serious harm and should be reported immediately. By calling our bicycle accident attorneys, we can get started right away investigating the accident and preparing your claim.
Most Common Bike Accident Injuries
In many bike accident cases, the injuries sustained are minor such as:
In some instance, the injuries caused by bicycle accidents are more severe including:
- Head Injuries
- Traumatic Injuries
- Skull fracture
It's important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible following an accident so your injuries can be assessed. Once your injuries have been checked and you have begun your recovery you should consider contacting an attorney to discuss your options for financial recovery.
Negligent Drivers Cause Bicycle Accidents
Perhaps the most common cause of bicycle accidents is negligent drivers. Not all drivers pay attention when they are sharing the road with a cyclist. Hand-turn signals being ignored, not enough room on the road for the bike being given, and yields are not being given are a few of the major mistakes inattentive drivers make when traveling with bicyclists and the result is accidents. These types of accidents can cause serious personal injury or even death. If you have been the victim of a bicycle accident in New Jersey, you may have extensive medical bills and lost wages, not to mention the pain and suffering you may endure.
