How did your bicycle accident happen?

Bicycle accidents happen for many different reasons. In general, they usually happen for one of two main reasons - a driver was behaving recklessly or not paying attention. In particular, this often involves drivers doing one of the following things:

  • Texting while driving and crashing into a bicycle
  • Speeding and striking a cyclist
  • Not stopping at a crosswalk
  • Driving through a red light or stop sign at an intersection
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Veering off the road and hitting a cyclist
  • Driving aggressively and running a cyclist off the road

Is this how your bicycle accident happened? Not sure what you should do next? Take a stand. Talk to a lawyer who won't back down. Get Gary on your side.

Common types of bicycle accidents

Bicycle accidents can happen at any time, anywhere, but there are a few situations that are especially dangerous, including:

  • Right hook: A right hook occurs when a driver makes a right turn without noticing an oncoming cyclist to their right. This can lead to a collision at an intersection as the cyclist continues straight while the vehicle turns and hits the bicycle.
  • Left/right cross collision: These types of bicycle accidents happen when a vehicle turns left or right in front of an oncoming cyclist’s path. These collisions can occur when drivers fail to maintain a proper speed and distance from cyclists.
  • Changing lanes without looking: Bicyclists can also be put at risk for accidents when drivers change lanes without checking their blind spots. This can lead to sudden collisions if a cyclist is in the driver's blind spot and goes unnoticed during the lane change.
  • Failing to yield: Bicycle accidents can occur when drivers fail to yield the right of way to cyclists, particularly at intersections, crosswalks, and other shared spaces.
  • Driving too close to the bike lane: Driving too close to the bike lane or designated cycling areas can significantly increase the risk of collisions. This can force cyclists off the road or lead to sideswipe accidents if there is not enough space for both vehicles and bicycles.

What are common types of bicycle accident injuries?

As cyclists navigate busy streets, they can face hazards that can lead to a range of injuries. From chest pain to leg pain, and being knocked off their bikes, these accidents can result in a variety of injuries. Some of the most common types of bicycle accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head injuries
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Leg and arm injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Road rash and abrasions
  • Facial and dental injuries

What we can do for you

Bicycle accidents can be extremely complicated, including ones clearly caused by another driver. Why? Because many drivers refuse to admit they did anything wrong. They might even try to blame you, saying you did something to cause the collision. And that's if you can find the driver at all - hit and runs are very common in bicycle accident cases.

Then there are the insurance companies. The one working for the driver who caused your bicycle accident likely only has one thing in mind - to deny your accident claim. The reason? Most insurance companies only care about their bottom line. And bicycle accidents can often be very expensive, costing them thousands or potentially even millions of dollars.

They don't scare us. Gary knows all the tricks insurance companies play. And he knows how to beat them at their own game. He knows what evidence matters. And he knows how to find it. Most insurance companies come around to our side and agree to offer a settlement that fully addresses your needs. If not, we're prepared to fight them every step of the way in court.

Take your case seriously right from the start. Contact Gary right now and schedule your free case evaluation with a Georgia bicycle accident lawyer who puts your best interests first.
