Bicyclists At Risk for Serious Injuries

Nevada bicyclists are at risk for significant injuries as they share the roads and street crossings with motor vehicles. While bike trails and bike lanes are designed to help protect bicyclists, and numerous laws are in effect to help ensure the safety of riders, they are no guarantee. In fact, approximately 48,000 cyclists were injured and more than 700 were killed as a result of crashes with motor vehicles in 2013 alone.

In Nevada, bicyclists are expected to follow the same rules as drivers of motorized vehicles. Unfortunately, many motorists do not regard bicycles in the same way they do larger vehicles. By failing to adequately share the road with riders, drivers put bicyclists at risk for serious injuries, permanent disability and sometimes even fatality. When a motorist’s negligence is responsible for the injury or death of a bike rider, they should be held liable for the actions that caused an accident. Our team is passionate about protecting the rights of victims of bicycle accidents, and we are committed to making sure responsible parties are held accountable.

Causes of Bicycle Accidents

While an estimated 29 percent of bicycle accidents are caused when a rider is struck by a larger vehicle, and approximately 51 percent of those accidents are due to the negligence of the motorist, it is important to remember that there are a variety of other factors that are commonly involved in biking accidents as well:

In many situations, there are multiple factors that play a role in a bicycle accident, and multiple personal injury claims may be filed. Our firm will investigate all of the circumstances surrounding your accident to determine all parties who may be responsible.

What Our Bicycle Accident Lawyer Can Do for You

When a bicycle accident occurs, many victims are tempted to accept the initial settlement offer from the insurance company. In most cases, however, these settlements end up being a fraction of what the victim’s injuries are actually worth. If you’ve been injured in Northern Nevada, we recommend that you contact our firm before you agree to any settlement so we can gather information from any witnesses, carefully review accident reports, and thoroughly investigate your accident to ensure that you receive the compensation that is rightfully yours.
