Causes of Bicycle Accident Injuries
Bicycle accidents tend to cause serious injuries, as riders are not protected by the structure of the vehicle, seat belts, air bags, or other safety mechanisms. When drivers come too close to a bicyclist or fail to use appropriate caution, serious, catastrophic, and even fatal injuries can occur.
Bike injuries can be caused by several factors, such as:
- Drivers changing lanes unsafely
- Disregarding stop signs or traffic signals
- Failing to respect the bike lane
- Turning improperly
- Failure of the driver to leave sufficient space for the bicyclist
Accidents often occur when drivers neglect to use appropriate caution around bicyclists, which puts the person on the bike at risk. At the Kirk Law Firm, we hold negligent motorists accountable for the injuries caused by their actions. When the injury happens to a child, the results can be devastating for the entire family and threaten the child’s future.
