Common Injuries Caused by Bicycle Accidents
A bicycle accident, especially one involving a car, truck, or other vehicle, can cause serious injuries to those involved, and can be one of the most dangerous types of accidents with regard to injuries. A bicycle offers inherently little protection to the cyclist, and helmets and protective gear, while essential and potentially life-saving, offer minimal protection from broken bones, severe abrasions, or worse, catastrophic injuries or the tragic loss of life.
If you or a loved one has suffered a physical injury due to a bicycle accident that was the result of someone else's recklessness or negligence, such as negligent driving of a motorist who was sharing the road, contact a Shreveport injury attorney from our firm as soon as possible to discuss your case and find out if you are entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering. Schedule a case evaluation today.
Determining Motorist Negligence
While the law states that bicyclists are welcome to share the road with motorists, it is usually the motorist's negligence or inattention that causes bicycle accidents.
Common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- A motorist turns into the bicycle lane, or directly in front of a bicyclist
- A motorist does not see a bicyclist and turns in front of them from a driveway or parking space
- A motorist does not follow road sign and signals properly
- A motorist does not look both ways when entering an intersection
- A drunk driving accident
