Atlanta Bicycle Accidents Involve Severe Injuries

Bicycle accident statistics are universally dismaying. Study after study shows that younger riders are at much-elevated risk for getting into crashes – and when they do get into accidents, these accidents tend to cause severe injuries. Even bicyclists who operate safely – people who wear helmets, follow proper safety protocol, don't take risks, etc. – can get hurt easier simply because of the size difference between bicycles and other larger vehicles on the road.

Causes of Atlanta Bicycle Accidents

Here is a list of some of the most common causes of Atlanta bicycle accidents:

  • Material, such as sticks or pieces of garbage, getting caught in spokes or gears
  • Tire or other bicycle part failure
  • Bicyclist error or carelessness, or aggression on the road
  • Motorcyclists, car drivers, or trucker negligence, carelessness, or other misbehavior
  • Dangerous road conditions
  • Inclement weather, such as rainwater pools or black ice on roads
  • Interference from a pedestrian, another biker, or other sources
  • Bicyclist exhaustion or fatigue

Dangerous Road Conditions That Cause Bike Accidents

Anyone who has ridden a bike knows they can be highly affected by issues with the road surface on which they are riding. For example, bicyclists can easily be thrown over their handlebars and onto the ground directly ahead when a front wheel becomes stuck. 

Some of the more common kinds of dangerous conditions that cause bicycle accidents include the following:

  • Potholes
  • Accumulations of snow or ice
  • Cracked pavement
  • Obstructed or hidden fixtures, i.e., fire hydrants
  • Excessively gravelly roads
  • Inadequate signage for bikes and traffic
  • Poor road design
  • Dangerous intersections
  • Overgrown foliage
  • Inadequate lane markings

When A Loved One Dies In a Bicycle Accident

Our team at Broughton Accident & Injury Lawyers has seen firsthand the devastation of a bicycle accident. Even with protective gear and a bicycle helmet, cyclists are no match for the physical size and speed of a passenger vehicle. The danger of a bicycle accident is there each time you or a loved one hits the road. Unfortunately, this means that some bicycle accidents can be fatal.

You may be entitled to a wrongful death claim if you have lost a loved one in a bicycle accident due to a negligent driver's fault. Broughton Accident & Injury Lawyers represents the families of those individuals who have been seriously injured or killed in bicycle accidents. While nothing can replace a family member, receiving a settlement for your loss and suffering can lessen the financial stress caused by the loss.

Survivors of those killed in a bicycle accident who may have the right to file a wrongful death claim against a negligent party include:

  • The cyclist's children
  • The cyclist's spouse
  • The cyclist's parents
  • The cyclist's sibling
  • Any dependants of the cyclists at the time of their death

The right to file a wrongful death claim is reserved for the children and spouse of the cyclist. If they file a wrongful death claim, it is unlikely that another party would be able to do so as well. If you have a question about the legalities surrounding a wrongful death claim following the loss of a loved one in a bicycle accident, you should contact our law firm for a free consultation.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bike accident, do not be intimidated by insurance companies that try to trick you into taking a quick, low-ball cash settlement.

Contact our bicycle accident lawyers in Atlanta today at (404) 842-7700 to discuss your injuries and how we can help you heal completely with the maximum settlement you deserve.
