Bicycle Accidents

Protection When Drivers Won’t Share the Road

You started cycling to boost your health and save money on gas. But drivers aren’t always willing to share the road. When a driver’s carelessness turns dangerous, the personal injury attorneys at Giroux Pappas Trial Attorneys know how to protect you and your loved ones.

Accidents like this are stacked against the cyclist due to the significant size and weight difference between a car and a bicycle. That leaves you at a much higher risk of harm from a reckless driver.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 1,000 cyclists died in 2015 due to bicycle accidents, and another 467,000 suffered injuries, resulting in lifetime total medical costs of $10 billion.

Common injuries in bicycle accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Closed head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Emotional trauma

Did you or a loved one suffer a bicycle accident due to any of the following?

  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Failure to yield
  • Opening car doors without looking
  • Backing out of a parking space without looking
  • Poor property maintenance
  • Driver distraction
  • Failure to allow sufficient clearance when bicycles pass on the road
