Bicycle Attorneys: Advocating for Cyclists' Rights

Cyclists and accidents

Bicycling is a popular recreational sport as well as a way for many people to get to and from work and school. Because of their small size, bicycles are often involved in bike accidents that sometimes result in serious and permanent injuries. If you are a bicyclist involved in a bicycle accident and believe another person was at fault, you may be eligible for monetary damages to cover all your medical bills and medical expenses, lost time from work or school, and pain and suffering. The bicycle accident attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin, who have meaningful experience in this area of the law, will quickly determine whether you have a bike accident case and if so, litigate your case to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Types of bike accidents

Bicycle lawyers know that bicycle safety is not only on the bicyclist to prevent serious injuries or fatalities. Even following all bicycle laws does not mean a cyclist is safe from harm. Bicycle riders can become bicycle accident victims and suffer catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries or broken bones, possibly due to their own mistakes, but the majority of bicycle accidents are the result of other commuters and motor vehicle drivers’ errors. Common causes of bike accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Motor vehicle-involved bike crashes, including busses or trucks
  • Negligence of drivers or passengers while opening or closing car doors, also known as dooring
  • Motor vehicle operators or other bicyclists ignoring the right-of-way
  • Improperly designed or maintained roadways
  • Other individuals not following traffic laws
  • Failure to adhere to the rules of the road, such as stopping at a stop sign or properly yielding to oncoming bicyclist traffic
  • Vehicles illegally parked in bike lanes
