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
