Causes of Cycling Crashes
Common causes of cycling crashes:
- Drivers failing to respect crosswalk rules
- Difficulty seeing at dusk and dawn
- Roads that fall into disrepair including potholes
- Pulling into traffic without looking both ways
- Operating too fast when there are bicycles and others present
- Not leaving enough room when passing a bicyclist
- Distracted driving, drunk driving
- Inadequate maintenance of a vehicle or bicycle
Drivers must respect the rights of bicyclists. There are several causes of cycling crashes. A driver may be held responsible for any act of negligence that causes a crash. Even if they never receive a traffic ticket, a lack of care and caution can be the basis of legal liability.
Getting Compensation for a Bicycle Accident
Compensation for a bicycle accident may include:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Medications and mobility assistance devices
- Mental health injury and treatment
- Pain and suffering, emotional anguish
- Permanent injury and disfigurement
- Lost income, damage to career
- Damage to your bike and other personal items
Getting compensated fairly requires determining what losses may be covered. It’s not just your physical injuries – you can claim payment for the non-economic ways your injuries have impacted you. Our lawyers know these types of losses, and we make sure you are truly claiming the amount allowable under law.
Often, bicycle accident victims ask for too little. While monetary compensation can’t undo the accident, the result in court can be fair based on the many ways that the accident has impacted you. Our lawyers evaluate and build the evidence to make sure your claim is complete.

What do you do after a bicycle accident?
A bicycle accident should be treated like any other motor vehicle accident. You should remain at the scene and call first responders. After securing medical treatment for anyone injured, you should proceed to photograph the accident scene and gather information from the driver and other witnesses. The accident should be reported to law enforcement.
Is there legal liability for bicycle lane accidents?
If there is a dedicated bicycle lane, drivers should exercise extra caution, knowing that riders may be present. A motor vehicle driver may have legal liability for hitting a bicyclist in a bike lane.
Can there be legal liability if there was no bicycle lane?
A driver may have legal liability in a situation where there is no bicycle lane. Bicycling is a form of transportation. Riders have the right to use the roads. When negligence leads to a bicycle accident, the driver may be legally liable.
