Bicyclists Have a Right to Use the Road

Generally speaking, bicycle riders have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of motor vehicles. Car and truck drivers often ignore this fact, putting bicycle riders at risk by:

  • Crowding bicycles off the shoulder of the road
  • Ignoring bike lanes
  • Running into bicycles in intersections
  • Backing into bicycles in parking lots

Our lawyers conduct thorough investigations of bicycle accident cases to determine the cause and identify liable parties. Many bike accidents are caused by negligent car or truck drivers. Other factors such as faulty roadways, faulty guardrails or defective traffic lights may be present as well. We will pursue compensation from all possible sources to ensure you obtain the resources you need to pay for your medical bills, lost wages and other losses.
