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
