We’re All Traveling the Same Road – Let’s Move Forward Together
Whether you’re an avid cyclist or an occasional rider, you have a right to enjoy a safe excursion when you take your bike out. But, if someone fails to maintain the bike paths, or if a careless driver drifts into the bike lane, you could suffer a serious injury as a result. Bicycle riders are extremely susceptible to major injuries because they lack much physical protection, and if they are thrown from their bikes, struck by a vehicle, or otherwise disrupted, the resulting damage can be severe. If you were injured in a bike accident and you believe someone else’s actions caused your crash, you may need a bike accident attorney.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries
Most bicycle accidents throw the rider from their bike, which result in traumatic injuries to the head, face, shoulder, arms, knees, hip, or other extremities. In most cases, the rider will strike the pavement with great force, or they may collide with a stationary object, or a vehicle. A bicycle crash might also result in serious abdominal injuries, as the rider could be thrust into their handlebars upon impact. Whatever the injuries, it’s important to seek medical attention without delay. A knowledgeable doctor can identify less obvious injuries, like internal damage or pulled muscles, and provide you with documentation to further support your injury claim.
Some of the most common bicycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck injuries
- Spinal damage
- Cuts and abrasions
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Bone fractures
- Joint damage
- Hip injuries

Who Could Be Liable for My Damages?
Once our team has determined what caused your crash, we can investigate the liable party, or parties, and create a legal plan to hold them responsible for their actions. If your crash was caused by a damaged bike path or road defect, the city or associated property owner could be liable for creating a hazardous environment. Likewise, if there is debris in the path, or some other obstruction due to construction work or gardening, that associated company could be liable. In the event that the bike crash is because of a mechanical failure, the product manufacturer could be liable for a design flaw or manufacturing defect.
Because bike accidents can be so complex, it is in your best interest to leave the issue of liability in the hands of professionals. We can investigate the circumstances of your crash and, based on the cause of the accident, determine which party bore responsibility for the damages you suffered. Our team can work with you through each step of the case, keeping you informed of each new bit of information and legal strategy as we work to protect your best interest and obtain the compensation you deserve.
