How Bike Accidents Occur

While bicycles provide riders with many benefits, they offer little in the way of protection in collisions with motor vehicles.  Their small profile also makes them easy for inattentive or careless drivers to lose track of.  In many cases, drivers fail to notice a cyclist and turn or merge right into them.  In cases involving dooring, occupants of parked vehicles open doors directly into or in front of approaching cyclists, knocking them down or into oncoming traffic.  The unfortunate reality is that even when cyclists follow traffic rules and ride in dedicated bike lanes, they are at risk of being struck and injured or killed.

Important Evidence in Bike Accident Cases

To build a successful bike accident case, your attorney will need to prove that another party was negligent and cause the accident, that your injuries were a result of the accident, and that you suffered real, tangible losses as a result.  In bike accident cases, evidence can include:

  • Photos of your injuries
  • Photos of the accident
  • Medical records
  • Surveillance footage
  • Police reports
  • Forensic evidence
  • Witness statements
  • Expert testimony

Unfortunately, as time passes, evidence can become lost or be destroyed.  Tire skid marks may disappear, video footage may be deleted, witnesses may become unreliable.  However, it is important that you hire a lawyer to investigate your claim and preserve evidence as soon as possible.
