Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Years of riding experience and cutting-edge safety equipment can’t prevent bike crashes caused by driver negligence and road hazards. Several common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Failure to Yield Entering Roadways
Bicycle collisions often occur when drivers don’t look for cyclists while pulling out of driveways or parking lots.
- Passing Too Closely
When motorists fail to provide at least three feet of space while passing, cyclists can lose control of their bikes or collide with vehicle mirrors.
- Right Turn Collisions
Drivers who fail to yield to bicycle traffic while making right turns across bike lanes can cause deadly collisions.
- Unsafe Road Conditions
Potholes, unmarked road construction, and road debris can cause cyclists to lose control of their bikes.
At Lowell Stanley, we don’t believe you should have to pay for a bicycle accident that wasn’t your fault. Our Norfolk bicycle accident lawyers can help determine who was responsible for your bicycle accident and hold them accountable for their negligence.
