Why Bicycle Accidents Are So Dangerous

When a collision between two motor vehicles occurs, all drivers and passengers usually have the advantage of cabin safety features—along with being protected from a direct impact. Bicyclists, however, do not have this luxury and motorist negligence can inflict life-altering, even life-threatening trauma.

What does motorist negligence look like in bicycle accidents?

  • Drift into bicycle lanes and road shoulders
  • Not looking before exiting a vehicle (door injuries)
  • Tailgating (following cyclists too closely)
  • Failing to properly signal at an intersection
  • Distracted driving due to personal devices, smart phones, etc.
  • Impaired driving due to drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding
