Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Palm Tree

Bicycles can be great for saving money and staying fit. However, they are among the most vulnerable forms of transportation. When on the road, a cyclist has only his or her helmet to protect them from injury. Even the slightest amount of negligence on the part of a motorist can cause an unsuspecting cyclist a great deal of harm and injury.

People behind the wheel often fail to give right of way to those on bikes. Whether they try to zoom past bicyclists on the side of the road or accidentally squeeze them out of a lane, motorists can create seriously dangerous situations for bikers. Other biking accidents can occur when someone suddenly opens a car door in front of a cyclist or does not check their mirrors before turning.
