Bicyclists Are Very Venerable In Traffic
Bicyclists are killed in accidents with motor vehicles every day, and almost half of those wrongful deaths are suffered by children under the age of 16. Even if the bicyclists survives the crash, the difference in weight and momentum between the bicycle and a car or truck results in catastrophic injuries that may involve brain damage, internal injuries, multiple fractures and paralysis. The life of the bicyclist and that of the family will be forever changed. The bicycle accident lawyers in our law firm are compassionate and understanding of the requirements of those injured in bicycle accidents, and is aggressive in pursuit of justice on behalf of their clients injured in bicycle collisions.
Who is responsible for the accident?
A driver can be held legally responsible if the driver failed to act reasonably in operating the motor vehicle. That is, if the driver did not use the level of skill and caution a reasonably prudent person would use in a similar situation, then that driver should compensate the person injured for the injuries and damages suffered in the accident.
Because driving is so heavily regulated, having laws attached to nearly every move a driver makes the doctrine of negligence frequently arises in the context of motor vehicle accidents. This doctrine holds that someone who violates the law, and in the process of doing so causes an injury the law was designed to prevent, is negligent. However, many times the driver of a motor vehicle will attempt to shift blame of the collision to the bicycle rider, stating the bicycle rider acted reckless or careless therefore causing the accident. Our bicycle accident attorneys will conduct a complete investigation, consulting with a team of top investigators and accident reconstructionists to determine who is responsible for the accident and identify the cause of the accident.
