Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Georgia law states that bicyclists have the same rights on roadways that motorists have. Nevertheless, motorists are often reluctant to share the road with slow cyclists, or they may even be ignorant of traffic laws giving cyclists equal rights. More often than not, however, motorists are simply negligent or distracted and fail to notice bicyclists around them. As a result of all these situations, bicycle accidents and personal injury occur.

Most bicycle accidents are caused by negligent drivers who turn, change lanes, or travel through an intersection without checking to see if anyone is in their path. Another common cause of bike crashes is premises liability, such as uneven pavement or poorly maintained roads. Bicyclists often travel at high speeds and may not have enough time to react to split pavement, potholes, and other hazards that could have been prevented by proper maintenance. If you have been hit by a negligent driver or suffered a crash due to premises liability, get legal counsel immediately to learn what could be done to recover your damages.

Bike Accident Injuries

Since cyclists have very little protection in a crash, injuries are often very severe. Common examples include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Concussions/Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Neck injuries/spinal cord injuries

Much of the time, these injuries can be catastrophic, resulting in permanent damage requiring ongoing medical care.
