What Causes Redmond Bicycle Accidents?

Every motor vehicle driver has a duty to reasonably prevent harm to other roadway users. These duties include always paying attention to the road, obeying traffic laws, yielding the right-of-way to pedestrians and bicyclists, and adequately maintaining their vehicles. A breach of these duties, such as texting and driving, can cause a Redmond bicycle accident. Negligent drivers cause most bicycle accidents, but other causes include unsafe crosswalks/roadways, lack of bicycle lanes, potholes or other hazards in the road, and defective bicycle parts.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

You may need a bicycle injury lawyer if you suffered serious injuries in a recent collision. These injuries include multiple bone fractures, concussion, other traumatic brain injury, skull fracture, spinal cord injury, and internal organ damage. Some injuries may be permanently disabling, while others may only disable the victim temporarily during treatment and recovery.

Some of the most common bicycle accident injuries occur to the lower extremities, from the initial impact between the vehicle and the bicycle. Other common injuries can happen to the face, skull, and brain – especially if the bicyclist was not wearing a helmet. Road rash and related lacerations are also frequent injuries. No matter what injuries you suffered, discuss your case with a lawyer.

Who Is Liable?

The liable party in your case will be the person or entity most at fault for causing your bicycle accident. The liable party will be responsible for paying your medical costs, lost wages, and property damage costs. This could be a negligent driver, careless city planner, wanton bicycle manufacturer, and/or other parties. Identifying the liable party may take an investigation into your accident from lawyers, police officers, or insurance companies.

Once you determine liability, your lawyer can process your claim within the state’s deadline and present your case in front of a judge or jury. Your Redmond bicycle accident lawyer will have to prove negligence to secure compensation. This involves showing evidence of duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages. Proving negligence and securing compensation can be easier with help from a lawyer.
