Causes of Bicycle Accidents

When your bicycle accident happened, it might not be clear what exactly went wrong. To get to the root cause of the bicycle accident, our attorneys may need to conduct an investigation. We can network with third-party experts like accident reconstruction professionals, too. The goal is to prove that the bicycle accident happened due to no fault of your own.

An investigation could reveal that the cause of the bicycle accident was:

  • Reckless driving
  • Not stopping at crosswalks
  • Motorists using the bike lane
  • Pedestrians not looking for bike traffic

We can even work on bicycle accident cases that didn’t involve another vehicle or pedestrian. For example, if your bicycle’s brakes failed without warning, and that failure was caused by a product defect, then the bike manufacturer could be liable for your damages.

Bicycle Accident Injuries

A bicycle accident can result in life-changing injuries in an instant. Bike riders have very little protection against a collision. Even a small passenger vehicle can impart a devastating amount of force in a low-speed crash, severely injuring the bicyclist.

Injuries that commonly happen in bicycle accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Neck and joint injuries
  • Spine injuries and paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Road rash

If you lost a loved one to a fatal bicycle accident, then you could have a chance to file a wrongful death claim for justice and compensation. We would be honored to help your family through this difficult time by respectfully handling the legal work for you, including settlement negotiations and litigation if it becomes necessary.

Philadelphia Bicycle Accident FAQ

What damages can you get as a bicycle accident claimant?

If you file a bicycle accident claim, you can demand compensation for all your losses. Typically, the damages in an injury claim like yours will include medical treatment costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, and more.

Can you file a bicycle accident claim against a pedestrian?

Many bicycle accident claims are filed against motorists who hit bicycle riders, but some are filed against negligent pedestrians. For example, if a bicyclist has the right-of-way in a bike lane but a pedestrian steps suddenly in front of them, then the pedestrian could be the liable defendant. In such a case, an attorney can help identify what insurance policies can be filed against if any.

Am I allowed to file a claim if I wasn’t filing the rules of the road?

Virginia uses pure contributory negligence rules for injury claims like bicycle accident cases. If you are just 1% liable for the accident, then your right to file a claim can be voided entirely. For this reason, if you weren’t following the rules of the road when you were in a bicycle accident, it could seriously jeopardize the validity of your claim.

Should I hire an attorney for a bicycle accident?

You should at least speak with a bicycle accident attorney to get a better understanding of your options and what their services can do for your case. You aren’t legally required to hire a lawyer, but it is always highly recommended.
