Causes of Bicycle Crashes
Although Atlanta’s streets and roads can get extremely busy with auto traffic, the fact of the matter is cyclists have the same legal rights to the road as automobiles. The state of Georgia allows victims of bicycle crashes the right to recover damages for their pain and suffering, medical bills and lost income.
“Each year there are approximately 50, 000 bicycle accidents in the United States with nearly 500 of those resulting in death.”
Many times cars don’t adequately share the road with cyclists. In addition, many automobile drivers have a bias against cyclists. The results of this reckless attitude show up on a regular basis through the consequences of life altering bicycle crashes caused by:
- Road rage or intentionally aggressive drivers
- Reckless or inattentive drivers
- A vehicle pulling out in front of a cyclist
- A vehicle driver failing to look both ways before turning
- A vehicle failing to yield and turning into traffic
- Driving under the Influence
- Drivers failing to stop for stop signs
Despite the growth of Atlanta bike routes, the beltline, the Silver Comet Trail and Atlanta metro area bike plans, Atlanta area streets and roads can be extremely dangerous for cyclists.
Both Kevin Wheeler and Jim Watson have many years experience cycling in areas all over the Atlanta area and in the north Georgia mountains. They recognize and understand the various dangers cyclists face on our roads and will use their knowledge to help you recover maximum compensation for your bicycle crash related injuries because of the negligence of others.
