Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles account for only 1% of all trips in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Bicyclists, on the other hand, suffer a larger risk of crash-related injury and death than motor vehicle occupants. Over 1,000 bikers were killed and almost 467,000 were injured in the United States in 2015. Furthermore, data from a recent year reveals that fatal and non-fatal bike crash-related injuries cost $10 billion in lifetime medical expenditures and productivity losses. 

If you are a cyclist who has been hurt, you should call the bicycle accident law firm attorneys at Anthony-Smith Law, who will preserve your right to submit an insurance claim and fight for the money you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Accidents involving bicycles and motor vehicles are terrifying. Cyclists cannot compete with the speed or weight of a vehicle, truck, or van. The rider is grateful to be alive after this sort of collision, but you still have rights to compensation. To safeguard these rights, do not hesitate to seek a medical evaluation, obtain a copy of the police record, and seek legal assistance. 

Bicycle accidents can cause serious and even deadly injuries. Whether the driver’s carelessness caused the cyclist’s injuries or the cyclist’s negligence caused or contributed to the accident, this sort of accident can result in severe injuries, such as shattered bones, facial deformity, traumatic brain damage, paralysis, and death.

Preventing Bicycle Accidents and Injuries

Here are some bicycle safety guidelines to help you avoid accidents and injuries:


  • The bike should be the right size for the rider.
  • Wear a nationally certified bicycle safety helmet at all times. According to one research, motorcyclists who do not wear helmets are 14 times more likely to suffer fatal brain injuries than those who do.
  • Riders must observe the same traffic regulations as drivers. They should stop at red lights, avoid using the walkway, and ride in the direction of traffic.
  • Riders should wear bright clothes to make themselves apparent to other motorists, especially at night. Their bicycles should also have reflectors so that other drivers can see them.
  • Riders should keep a safe distance from parked automobiles to avoid being struck by doors that may open.
  • Riders should dismount their bicycles while crossing a pedestrian lane.
  • Bicyclists, like all drivers, should keep their eyes on the road and avoid being distracted by technology.
  • Pedestrians have the right-of-way.
  • Riders should adjust their speed according to the road conditions and traffic volume.
  • When stopping, turning, or changing lanes, employ the appropriate hand signals.
  • Crossing junctions should be done with extreme caution.
  • Make use of the entire lane to make oneself visible and predictable to other drivers.
  • Riders should be especially cautious while overtaking a truck or bus, which has a bigger blind spot (the region behind a vehicle where drivers cannot see anything from their side mirrors) than a passenger car.
