Riders and pedestrians are also at much higher risk of being fatally injured in a collision.
Bad Drivers Cause Bicycle Accidents
Bike accidents often happen because the motorist was careless or overly aggressive. Drivers fail to check the bike lane before making a right turn, or even open their door right in front of a biker’s path. In some cases, they will crowd or tailgate a cyclist to try to intimidate the rider to “get out of the way.” The result is often a disaster.
Whether you were injured walking across the street or hit when riding your bike, you may be entitled to substantial compensation from the driver and their insurance company. Attorney Donald Bedell aggressively pursues maximum compensation for all of his clients. He regularly takes personal injury claims to court to hold negligent actors accountable.
