What kinds of accidents can occur with bicycles?
A majority of accidents that occur with bicyclists happen when drivers of a cars or trucks simply do not see the bicycle in their path. Drivers are legally required to exercise an exceptional level of care when they are on the roadways, and collisions with bikes generally indicate the driver was negligent.
Some of the most common things that result in accidents with bicycles include:
- Left hand turn
- Open door collision
- Backing up
- Merging and changing lanes
- Passing without enough distance
- Intersection crashes
- Unsafe road conditions
There are some ways that bicyclists can help reduce the likelihood of these accidents, including wearing proper clothing, helmets, and using lights and flashers. While these can help, it is still the responsibility of the driver to ensure that they are following the rules of the road, which involves being aware of bicyclists and their unique needs on the road.
