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.
