What Are the Main Causes of Bicycle Accidents?

As previously mentioned, bicycle accidents are often caused by another person or party’s careless, reckless, or even wrongful behavior. In these cases, injured cyclists and/or the family members of those wrongfully killed in bicycle accidents can work to hold the negligent person or party accountable.

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Inattention: A driver who is texting or a pedestrian who is distracted can cause a serious bicycle collision. Sadly, inattention and carelessness are some of the leading causes of bicycle accidents. All too often, distracted driving leads to devastating bicycle accidents—often with fatal consequences.
  • Illegal Conduct: Violating traffic laws, driving while drunk, and ignoring stop signs and signals are all unlawful—and they are all common causes of bicycle accidents in Upper Marlboro and throughout Southern Maryland. When motorists and others act wrongfully, they can be held legally liable for any damages they cause.
  • Defective Products: An accident can be caused by a defective product, such as a faulty bicycle brake, or the effects of an accident can be exacerbated by one, such as a bicycle helmet with a defective design. In either case, the entity that designed, manufactured, or sold the product in question could be liable.
  • Unsafe Roadways: Defective road design and/or construction can also lead to bicycle accidents. When this is the case, the public or private entity responsible for designing and/or constructing the roadway could be legally liable for ensuing damages.

Whether a motorist opened their car door into a bike lane, a driver failed to pass with enough room, or another cyclist acted negligently, causing a crash, our Upper Marlboro bicycle accident lawyers can help you uncover supporting evidence to build your claim. Our goal is to seek the maximum possible recovery for our clients, and we have successfully secured millions of dollars on behalf of injured individuals and their families throughout our years in practice.

  • Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable

    “I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”

  • A wise choice for anyone pursuing legal justice and/or a defense

    Mr. Farmer and his team were impressive through their work effort and detailed approach in every phase the Civil Court Personal Injury case.
