Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Who was it that hit you while you were riding your bicycle? Whoever it was, they should be the one who pays for your damages. To make certain they do that, we will need to create a claim that proves they were the cause of your bicycle accident. Using our extensive experience and insight, we can investigate your crash, prove its cause, and pursue full compensation in your name.

Common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Drunk drivers
  • Drivers who turn left without a green arrow
  • Drivers who swerve into bicycle lanes

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bicyclists can use a variety of safety equipment to protect themselves in a crash. Helmets are the most critical piece of equipment, of course, but knee pads and elbow pads are also recommended. However, helmets and the like can only do so much to protect a bicyclist from injuries if they are struck by a larger, metal vehicle. As such, it is common for bicycle accident claims to cite catastrophic injuries when pursuing damage.

Terrible injuries that can be suffered by a bicyclist in a crash with a vehicle include:

The cost of care for these extreme injuries can be monumental. It is not fair to expect the injured bicyclist to pay for their damages if they were not the cause of them. Mama Justice would be happy to hear from you and see if we can help you pursue the full compensation owed to you by whoever hit you while you were on your bicycle in Jackson.

Who is Liable for a Cycling Accident?

Oftentimes, the cyclist who gets into a crash was not the one who caused it. Instead, motorists who are not paying enough attention are the liable ones in bicycle accidents. Many crashes happen when there are no bike lanes available for a bicyclist to use, so they are forced to join larger vehicles on the road.

There is also a chance that a local municipality or government department could be liable for your bicycle accident if it was caused by an unsafe road design. For example, you might be able to sue a local department of transportation if the bike lanes in your city have not been maintained or designed responsibly.

Sharing the Road on Your Bicycle in Mississippi

Be sure to follow all rules of the road when you are on your bicycle. Mississippi law requires you to share the road as you would if you were driving. You should also use bicycle lanes whenever they are available. If you get into a bicycle accident while you were violating the rules of the road, then your liability could be increased, and the validity of your claim will be jeopardized.
