Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Dallas, TX
Were You Seriously Injured On The Road?
Riding your bicycle around town, to work, for exercise, etc. is a great way to get some exercise and lessen your impact on the environment. Unfortunately, it also comes with risks that other people on the road don’t face because of the lack of protection compared to that enjoyed by drivers. According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, more than 450,000 cyclists are injured in car crashes every year, and more than 1,000 people are killed. Far too many of these crashes are caused by motorists who don’t take the time to check their blind spots, mirrors, etc. for cyclists.

Common Causes Of Bicycle Crashes
While there are any number of ways for a car to crash into a bicycle, some accidents are far more common than others. Some of the most dangerous situations include:
- Rear Ending – Reckless drivers can be just as dangerous as ones that aren’t paying attention. Sometimes the drivers who rear-end cyclists are not paying attention to the road, other times they’re driving too fast to stop in time. No matter the reason, being rear-ended on a bicycle can leave you with serious injuries.
- Opening the Door of a Parked Car – Biking in a city is stressful, even on a good day. One of the most dangerous hazards, especially while riding along a bike path next to a row of parked cars is the risk of an unaware driver opening their door right as you pass by.
- Turning into the Path While Travelling in the Same Direction – Drivers attempting to make a right turn should pay close attention to bikers traveling to their right before making that turn, but far too many fail to do so and cut off the cyclist. This can be caused by a number of factors, including misjudging your speed and neglecting to check their blind spots.
- Turning into the Path While Travelling in the Opposite Direction – Similar to crashes caused while traveling in the same direction, these types of crashes often occur when the oncoming driver doesn’t pay attention to other people in their path or doesn’t realize how fast the cyclist is moving.
