Helping Cyclists After Devastating Accidents
Cycling is one of the most financially savvy, environmentally friendly ways to travel. Indiana’s cyclist community continues to flourish with new bike lanes and trails, but with the increase in bicycle users comes an increase in bicycling accidents. Even with the correct safety gear, cyclists can be severely injured in a bicycle accident, especially when a motor vehicle driver is involved. If you or a loved one has suffered from a cycling accident in Indiana, please contact a Ladendorf Law attorney today.
Common Reasons Why Bicycle Accidents Occur
Most reasons for an injury-based claim from a bicycle accident fall in two categories – negligent drivers and faulty equipment.
Negligent driving examples include:
- Motorist disregards basic rules of the road
- Motorist is distracted
- Motorist is on the phone/texting
- Motorist is driving under the influence
- Motorist is speeding, making illegal turns, improperly signaling, running a red light
- Motorist opens their car door without looking for approaching cyclists
Examples of faulty equipment include:
- Bicycles and bicycle gear do not conform to safety standards
- Tires are defective
- Product/equipment failed to warn
- Instructions for proper use of equipment were confusing/nonexistent
