Except for certain highways and interstates, bicyclists are welcome on roadways throughout Virginia and the U.S. When bicyclists ride near motorized vehicles, they’re granted the same rights as drivers and must follow the same rules of the road, including observing speed limits, coming to a complete stop at stop signs and red lights, and not holding up traffic.
However, some bicyclists are reluctant to pursue compensation after traffic accidents—even when the accidents weren’t their fault. Just as drivers of passenger vehicles are allowed to file compensation claims after crashes, so too are bicyclists. In fact, the injuries that bicyclists can suffer are often more severe than the injuries sustained by drivers and passengers in cars, trucks, and SUVs, as bicyclists have no built-in protection for riders.
