What Causes Bicycle Accidents?
We recognize that even a highly experienced bicyclist can be involved in a serious crash. In addition to unpredictable traffic conditions, cyclists face a number of dangers on the road, including:
Failure to Yield when Entering the Roadway
It’s the law: Motorists must yield to oncoming traffic — including bicyclists — when exiting a driveway, alley, or parking lot.
Passing without Maintaining a Safe Distance
Kentucky law requires that motorists leave a distance of at least three feet when passing cyclists.
Right Turn Collisions
Motorists must signal before turning. Collisions often occur when motorists fail to signal before turning or makes a sudden turn across a cyclist's lane of travel — even in the presence of a bicycle lane.
Potholes, broken pavement, or construction debris all pose a serious danger to bicyclists. These — and other dangerous road conditions — oftentimes cause a cyclist to lose control of his or her bicycle. The party or parties responsible for the maintenance of an area where an accident occurred may be held legally responsible for damages. In Kentucky, a Board of Claims action may be initiated against the state for your uninsured damages, such as lost wages and uncovered medical expenses.
If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, through no fault of your own, you may be entitled compensation. Our experienced bicycle accident lawyers will review the details of your claim and will work to protect your legal rights and obtain the outcome you deserve.
