Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Drivers' failure to see cyclists or misjudging their speed is a huge contributing factor to these accidents. This is especially true in busy areas across the city or poorly lit roads. Then there's the issue of drivers opening their doors without checking for cyclists, known as "dooring".
Unsafe road conditions, like potholes or unclear bike lanes, can also contribute to accidents. Sometimes, liability might fall on cyclists themselves. Even so, Kentucky's pure comparative negligence laws allow the injured to recover compensation even if they're partly at fault.
How Liability Plays Out in Bicycle Accident Cases
Determining liability in bicycle accident cases is a complex process that requires access to powerful legal resources. If a driver broke traffic laws, causing the accident as a result, they may be at fault.
Liability can also fall on faulty bicycle part manufacturers, construction companies that failed to put up adequate warning signs, government agencies that failed to maintain roads, or even employers where company vehicles are involved.
Common Stereotypes Against Cyclists in Louisville
Cyclists often face certain stereotypes that can unfairly color accident claims. There's a belief by some that they are always reckless or don't follow road rules.
These stereotypes can influence how blame is shared among those involved.
Remember, your attorney is always on your side, not the insurance company or their claims adjusters, no matter how supportive they sound. It's usually a tactic to convince you to settle for less than you deserve and ignore the full scope of your injuries and losses.
