Causes of Bicycle-Related Injuries

Because of how exposed bicyclists are, they are at an increased danger of injury in comparison to automobile drivers. Additionally, they may be subjected to the negligent actions conducted by drivers who tend to disregard the rights of bicyclists while sharing the road. In fact, such disdain by drivers is often what leads to serious accidents involving bicyclists with injuries that are both painful and costly. Fortunately for bicyclists in the Detroit area, the attorneys of Detroit Personal Injury Attorneys work hard to fight for their rights if an unsafe driver causes their accident and injury.

Common Causes of Bike Accidents

There are many ways in which drivers endanger bicyclists in Detroit. For instance, many bicycle accidents are the result of drivers:

  • Failing to yield right-of-way
  • Swerving into bicycle-only lanes
  • Failing to use turn signals / look before changing lanes
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Using excessive speeds
  • Driving aggressively or under the influence

Such actions are among those that are responsible for a great number of bicycle accident and injuries in the area. Victims can sometimes file a personal injury suit against a dangerous driver and seek financial compensation for their suffering.
