State and federal laws govern the "rules of the road," and these rules apply to safe practices that ensure the safety of bicyclists on the road as well. The traffic laws that have been instated for drivers are meant to protect more than just other drivers on the road. In addition, they are intended to keep bicyclists safe from drivers who operate motor vehicles that are much larger, heavier, and more dangerous than bikes.
If one or more of the state's traffic laws are violated by a negligent or reckless driver on the road, an injury accident involving a nearby bicyclist can easily result. When this is the case, the legal case that ensues should place liability on the driver responsible for the accident. Accordingly, bicyclists who pursue a lawsuit in order to recover damages for injuries that were sustained in an accident will often rely upon asking and answering the following questions regarding whether or not the accident was caused:
If you can establish that the accident which left you injured was caused by a driver's reckless or negligent behaviors, and not through any fault of your own, then liability will lie with the driver alone. As with most cases of liability, it will be up to the plaintiff to prove that the duty that was owed to him or her was neglected.
In the case of a bicycle accident, drivers of motor vehicles are expected to operate their vehicles safely and according to state and federal laws; this is their established duty, and when it is not met, they can be held liable for an accident that results. An injury attorney from our firm can help establish liability in your case, so contact us today.

Many things can cause a bike accident, including:
Injuries caused in cycling accidents can be very serious, especially when the cyclist is hit by a car or other vehicle. Aside from a helmet, a bicyclist has no real protection should he or she be involved in a crash. Because of this fact, he or she may very well suffer from cuts and lacerations, road rash, or broken bones. In severe cases, brain injuries or spinal cord injuries may occur and cause permanent damage. Don't get stuck paying for such expensive injuries if you have been in a bike crash. You may very well be entitled to compensation, so contact a personal injury attorney right away to get the legal help that you need.
