How Do Bicycle Accidents Occur?

Unfortunately, bicycle accidents happen all the time, and due to a variety of reasons, causing injuries that range from minor, such as bruises, fractures, and sprains, to serious, like brain trauma and paralysis.

Common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving: When car drivers are distracted and are busy texting or eating and drinking while driving, it can be easy to miss a bicyclist entering your blind spot, or riding out in front of you.
  • Impaired driving: Drivers who are drunk or on drugs have a slower response time, and may not brake until it’s too late.
  • Reckless driving: Some drivers don’t obey road laws and drive through stop signs, go past the speed limit, fail to signal, and change lanes suddenly, which creates danger for everyone within vicinity.
