Have You Been Hurt in a Bicycle Accident?

As communities all over the country become more health and environmentally conscious, bicycling has become more and more popular. However, with this popularity has come difficulties in properly and safely integrating bikes into our traffic systems. In fact, over the last few years, California has some of the most troubling and deadly bicycle accident statistics in the nation.

Loewen, our Sacramento bicycle accident lawyer has over three decades of experience representing those who have been unduly hurt by others—including many cases of bicyclists injured in car crashes, truck accidents, and other collisions. Get the aggressive and unflagging legal counsel you need to properly pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Contact us to speak to a skilled and proven personal injury lawyer today.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

For most bicyclists, it is difficult to assert agency among the cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles roads were designed to accommodate. As a result, drivers often marginalize bicyclists, forget them, or ignore them completely while driving. When this happens, injuries become more likely.

The most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Failure to look for and signal to bicyclists
  • Failure to signal a turn or lane change
  • Failure to properly proceed at an intersection
  • Distracted driving (texting, phone calls, etc.)
  • Drunk driving (DUI)

If any of these causes were a factor in your bicycle accident, then negligence is likely to have occurred and compensation should be paid. Your medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, and pain and suffering all deserve an answer from a driver who failed to safely operate their motor vehicle.
