Road Hazards for Bicyclists

Bicyclists have as much of a right to travel safely on the roads as motor vehicle drivers. If the responsible municipal agency fails to take care of potential dangers on the road and this causes a cyclist to be injured in an accident, those injured cyclists may be able to pursue compensation for their injuries. Unfortunately, far too many bicyclists are injured due to road defects and hazards that should have been addressed.

If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident that could have been prevented with the proper precautions taken by a government road authority, you may be eligible to file for financial compensation through a personal injury claim. To learn more about these legal actions and what options you may have available, contact a Denver bicycle accident attorney from Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 today.

Safety Problems for Bicyclists on the Road

There are some unique safety problems that bicyclists may face on the road, as well as other defects and hazards that are worsened due to the lack of protections bicyclists have. These hazards include the following issues:

  • Potholes left unfixed or fixed incorrectly
  • Sewer grates
  • Dangerous tools or materials left out by construction workers
  • Railroad or trolley tracks that are partially hidden/don’t have forewarning

If left unaddressed, these safety concerns can potentially cause serious injuries in a bicycle accident. Cyclists, who have little protection compared to motorists, can be severely injured in even minor accidents.
