When Negligence Plays a Role
Not every accident on the road calls for legal action, but many of them
do. This is especially true in the case of bicycle accidents. Too many
drivers are not accustomed to driving around bicyclists and, even though
bicycling has become increasingly popular, accidents due to a lack of
motorist care and vigilance have become common.
Common instances of motorist negligence in bicycle accidents include:
- Not looking before exiting a vehicle (door injuries)
- Drift into bike lanes (or road shoulders)
- Breaking the speed limit
- Turning at intersections without looking or signaling
- Tailgating (following too closely)
- Distracted driving due to phone or device use
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance
