Bicyclists Have Rights on Virginia’s Roads—Especially After Accidents

by Staff Blogger | August 9th, 2021

If you ride your bike on public roads near traffic, you already know that there are many perks—and many downsides—to getting around town this way. It’s an extremely low-cost form of transportation, and it provides plenty of fresh air and exercise. But it also puts you at an extreme risk of serious injuries if you’re involved in a crash.

Unfortunately, many bicyclists fail to pursue compensation after accidents that weren’t their fault. That’s because they may not realize that they have the right to do so under Virginia law. Bicyclists in our state are required to obey all traffic laws, including driving at or below the speed limit, stopping at stop signs, and maintaining a lane, but that also means they can sue drivers whose negligence injures them.

We’ve seen the devastation that bicycle accidents can cause in riders, and many are left disabled, facing huge medical bills, and unable to enjoy their hobbies and time with loved ones.
