Wilmington Bicycle Accident Attorneys
We’re 30 Years Strong, And We’re Just Getting Started
Bicycle accidents can be catastrophic, especially if they occur at high speeds, in precarious areas, or if a motor vehicle is involved. As with motorcycles, bicyclists lack substantial protection if they’re knocked to the ground or thrown from their bike, which is why they can sustain serious injuries in the event of a crash. If you were involved in a bicycle accident that caused you significant harm, it is important to know that you have legal rights, and you may take action against the liable party.

Common Types of Bicycle Accidents
If you ride a bicycle regularly, you know that there are plenty of hazards to avoid, perhaps the most significant of which are motor vehicles. Car accidents can be deadly for cyclists, especially if they occur at high speeds. Other issues, like bike path debris, dangerously designed roads, and bike malfunctions can lead to serious accidents.
Some of the more common types of bicycle accidents involve the following:
- Car door accidents
- Defective bike parts
- Debris on the road or bike path
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Inadequate road maintenance
- Intersection accidents
- Poorly designed bike path
- Road debris
- Reckless drivers
Who Could Be Liable for My Accident?
By determining the nature of your crash, and the cause, you can then begin identifying the liable party, or parties. If your collision involved a vehicle, the driver is most likely at fault. However, if the driver was a truck driver or commercial driver, their employer might be liable. On the other hand, if your accident was caused by roadway issues, the party responsible for maintaining that roadway, like a city, a homeowners association, or a private party. If debris was spilled, on the path, the party responsible for causing the spill, or failing to pick it up, could be liable.
Because there are so many potentially liable parties, it is extremely important to seek professional legal guidance as soon as possible. Our firm is here to help you through each step of the process, and we can investigate the circumstances of your bike crash to identify the party responsible. We know what’s at stake for you, and we want to do what’s right and pursue justice.
