Were You Hit By A Car While Riding Your Bike?
Bikes and cars seem to be constantly at odds. Drivers of motor vehicles accuse bike riders of taking up too much space, while bicyclists simply want to use the road safely. Unfortunately, when drivers fail to see bicyclists and yield to them, it is the bike rider who suffers the most harm. Without the protection afforded by a motor vehicle, bicyclists hit by cars may be left with serious injuries, ranging from multiple broken bones to paralysis or brain damage.

Handling All Types Of Bicycle Accidents
Our lawyers handle bike crash cases of all kinds. Many of these cases involve a car hitting a bike rider. For example, bicyclists are frequently hit by cars taking a left turn into them at an intersection while coming from the opposite direction. Cars may also hit bicyclists while trying to pass them, or even go right into bike lanes and collide.
In some cases, there may not be a traditional collision. A bike rider may be forced to take evasive action to avoid a collision, suffering serious harm in the process. The victim may still have a claim against the driver of the car.
Another common type of bike accident is referred to as dooring. This is when a person in a parked car opens a car door directly into the path of a bicyclist, causing the bike rider to strike the open car door and suffer catastrophic injuries.
