As gas prices continue to fluctuate and more people are going green, many
individuals are choosing to ride bicycles as sources of transportation.
Although riding a bike can be a healthy alternative, it can also become
hazardous if surrounding drivers and cyclists fail to practice safe driving
and riding habits.
Unfortunately, many accidents involving bicyclists occur every year. According
to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 51,000
people sustained injuries and 630 individuals were killed in bicycle accidents
in 2009. At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., our legal team understands

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Bike accidents can occur for numerous reasons.
Below is a list of some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents:
- A motorist is cognitively, physically, or visually distracted.
- A motorist is impaired by alcohol or drugs
- A motorist changes lanes without regard for cyclists
- A motorist fails to give the cyclist the right away
Because bicycles are much smaller vehicles that passenger vehicles such
as car, trucks, and buses, accidents involving bicyclists often result
in serious injuries and, in the worst
personal injury cases, fatality.
Many bicycle accident victims suffer from the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Fractured bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
