Common Causes of Bicyclist Accidents
There are many dangers for a bicyclist when they take the road with distracted or negligent drivers. While there are a number of different factors that could contribute to an accident, statistics show that accidents between bicyclists and motor vehicles are by far the most common. In fact, only 16% of all reported bicycle accidents do not involve a collision with a motor vehicle.
Some of the leading causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Left-hand turns made by drivers without checking surroundings
- Drivers who swing open a traffic-side door
- Drivers who back up from a driveway or side street
- Drivers who change lanes and do not notice bikes
- Drivers who pass through intersections without looking
Seeking Full Compensation for Your Injuries
The damage that can be caused to a bicyclist can be traumatic and even fatal. These accidents often lead to hefty medical bills and time spent away from work, so it is every victim’s right to seek fair and adequate compensation if their injuries were caused by someone else’s negligent actions. Even if you do not have health insurance, our firm may be able to get you the medical treatment that you need.
Some of the most common types of injuries include:
- Whiplash / neck injuries
- Head trauma / brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries / paralysis
- Internal injuries / organ damage
- Broken bones / fractures
You will need compensation to cover the costs of recovering from such injuries, in addition to reimbursement for the time that you were forced to spend away from work. Taking on the insurance company by yourself can be challenging and frustrating, but an Las Vegas injury lawyer can fight for the compensation you deserve and help you move forward with your life.
Don’t have health insurance? No problem! You can still get the medical treatment you need.
