Bicycle accidents often lead to serious injuries and in some cases fatal injuries, especially those involving motor vehicles. While thousands of bicycle accidents occur each year in the United Sates, fatalities account for only 2 percent of all traffic fatalities. While most bicycle injury lawsuits usually involve discerning which party is at fault between a motor vehicle driver and the bicyclist, there are certain causes that generally lead an accident including biking or driving under the influence, distracted drivers or bicyclists, poor road conditions, poor weather or poor visibility. Additional causes include:

  • Defective vehicles
  • Driving and eating (motorist)
  • Driving under the influence
  • Excessive speed
  • Hit and run drivers
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Malfunctioning parts
  • Mechanical defects
  • Negligent motor vehicle drivers
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding drivers
  • Unexpected merging of motorist into the bicyclist’s path
