Sadly, motor vehicle drivers cause most bicycle accidents. Although many drivers claim they “didn’t see the cyclist” before it was too late, many simply did not look before turning or were distracted by their cell phone. Accidents involving a bicycle and a car often involve one or more of the following scenarios:
Intersection – Intersections are one of the most common locations for a bicycle accident to occur. Motor vehicle drivers often fail to stop at an intersection or fail to yield to a cyclist in the intersection.
Sideswipe – It is a motorist’s duty to make sure there is enough space between his or her car and a cyclist before passing the cyclist, however, many do not. Drivers who attempt a risky pass often run cyclists off the road or hit them while passing.
Left hand turn – All too often, drivers will make a left hand turn before checking or yielding to oncoming cyclists. Cyclists who run head on or into the side of an oncoming car often sustain serious, life threatening injuries.
