Waukesha Bike Injury Attorney
Most bicycle accidents occur as the result of distracted or reckless drivers. Eating, texting or even talking on a cell phone while driving can distract a driver to the point where he or she is completely unaware of his or her surroundings. When negligence occurs, serious injuries or fatalities can result.
Some of the more common causes of bike-related accidents include:
- Running red lights or stop signs
- Failure to recognize a cyclist's right of way
- Opening car doors into the path of oncoming bikers
Bicyclists are entitled to most of the same rights that automobile drivers possess, although most drivers do not recognize these rights. Most drivers expect bicyclists to accommodate them on the roads. This lack of awareness is the reason why most bike accidents occur. By the time a distracted driver sees a bicyclist in front of him or her, it may be too late.
