Need An Injury Attorney Michigan – Bicycle Accident
Today drivers must share the road with an abundance of vehicles. Bicyclists are the newest things populating the roadways, but since these laws are new tragedy often strikes. Much like motorcycles, bicycles are small enough to fit in the blind spot of a car. More than that, drivers are often looking for other vehicles, rather than bicyclists. It can feel cramped riding in the slim bike lane, and both driver and bicyclist get nervous when driving near each other. Weather and road conditions also play key roles when traveling by bicycle. There is little to no protection on the body and head of a bicyclist. The little protection they have is no match for the weight and impact of a metal vehicle. Also, there is no metal box surrounding a bicyclist so it’s likely they will be thrown from the bike. This can create even more injuries and cause permanent damage as well as create an unsafe driving environment.
Rarely do you see bicyclists travel on the highway, often they are in residential areas or business districts where there are cameras and witnesses. These two things will be essential in determining the cause of the crash and strengthening your claim. Accidents of this nature that occur in residential areas can have multiple contributing factors. It’s important for our attorneys to diagnose the cause so we know who exactly to go after with your lawsuit. The common cause of bicycle related accidents is listed as:
