Issaquah is home to a community of residents who care about the environment and their physical health. As such, bicycle riding is very common in the city. Every day, people rely on bicycles to commute to work, go to school, and run errands. While cycling has its benefits, it can also make riders more vulnerable to serious injuries.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Washington

Bicycle accidents can happen at any time, in any place. Several factors can contribute to these incidents, from limited visibility and dangerous road conditions to the negligent, reckless actions of motorists. 

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Driving while distracted
  • Tailgating, or following cyclists too closely
  • Driving over the posted speed limit
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Making an unsafe lane change
  • Turning without looking for cyclists
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Failing to yield the right of way

Pursuing Compensation After an Issaquah Bike Accident 

Washington is a fault-based state when it comes to road accidents. If you are injured while riding a bike, the driver who caused your accident would be financially responsible for the losses that you suffered. In case of an accident, state law requires drivers to carry liability insurance that pays for damages like medical care, property damage, and lost wages.

You have three main options for recovering compensation after an Issaquah bicycle collision:

  • You can file an insurance claim against the at-fault party’s policy.
  • You can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party in civil court.
  • You can file an insurance claim under your own policy if you have the appropriate coverage.

Different pathways are appropriate for different cases. Your attorney from Colburn Law will carefully explain your options and help you identify your optimal path to maximum compensation. Then, he will work to build a compelling case to prove the driver’s negligence and secure the settlement that you deserve.
