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, smartphones, etc.
Impaired driving due to drugs or alcohol
