Frequently Asked Questions

If you are involved in a bicycle accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if you do not think you are seriously injured, it is important to have a medical professional evaluate your condition. Some injuries, such as internal bleeding or brain damage, may not be immediately apparent.

The most common cause of bicycle accidents is collisions with motor vehicles. This often happens when a driver fails to yield the right of way to a cyclist, or when a driver turns into the path of a cyclist. Other common causes of bicycle accidents include potholes, road debris, and poorly maintained bike lanes.

Some of the most common injuries suffered in bicycle accidents include:

  • Head injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries;
