5 Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists are subject to regular traffic laws and have the same driving rights as any vehicle on the road. Unfortunately, though, thousands of bicyclists are injured every year in the United States because of negligent drivers who don’t give them the respect they deserve. In situations such as this, the driver responsible for the accident may also be liable to cover the cyclist’s medical bills and other related expenses.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a bicycle accident because of a negligent driver, contact an experienced Denver injury lawyer of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., today by calling (303) 423-1770 to discuss your legal options. Our attorneys are committed to helping clients receive full, generous compensation for their injuries sustained at the hands of unsafe drivers.

Frequent Causes of Cycling Accidents

There are many ways in which a bicyclist can be injured in an accident, though most reported accidents involve a negligent or reckless driver. Five of the most common causes of bicycle accidents involve the following types of reckless driving:

  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to obey traffic signs / lights
  • Running a red light / stop sign
  • Failure to use turn signals
  • Distracted driving

A bicyclist is legally guaranteed the same driving privileges as other drivers, so it’s important to seek compensation if these rights are violated.
