Bicycle accidents often occur when a negligent drivers strike bicyclists. The injuries from a bicycle accident are often very serious and permanent
In most accidents involving motor vehicles the police are called to the scene. The driver of the vehicle is usually given a citation for careless or reckless driving. Typically, the reasons for motor vehicle accidents involve the following:
- The driver did not obey traffic lights or stop signs
- The driver did not stop at a crosswalk
- The driver did not look before making a right turn
- The driver did not yield the right of way to the bicyclist
- The driver did not follow posted speed limits
- The driver was distracted by talking on their phone or texting while driving
- The driver was under the influence of alcohol or other illegal substances
Like most accidents, the driver may try to avoid responsibility by placing blame for the accident on the bicyclists, and the police officer may even give the bicyclists a ticket.
