Bicycle Accidents

Cycling is an enjoyable pass time, fun way to exercise and a great means of transportation. But when the unforeseeable happens, a bicycle accident can result in injury, death, medical bills, lost wages, insurance hassles and emotional pain and suffering. Bicycle accidents may be caused by factors such as:

  • Collision with a motor vehicle
  • Collision between a bicyclist and a road obstruction
  • Malfunction in the bicycle itself
  • Collision between two cyclists
  • Poorly designed or maintained roadway
