What Are Some Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents?
Bicycle accidents in Jersey City and throughout the state and nation occur due to many different reasons. The most common involve:
- Collisions with motor vehicles,
- Drivers or passengers opening a vehicle's door in a cyclist's path.
- Poor road conditions like potholes.
- Drivers or even bicyclists not following traffic laws.
Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents
Injuries from bicycle accidents are usually severe. That's because the human body is no match against a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds. Mind you, the average vehicle weight in the United States is about 4,000 pounds.
That said, some common injuries in these accidents include:
- Road rash, bruises, and cuts.
- Broken bones.
- Head injuries.
- Chronic pain.
- Traumatic brain injuries.
Liability in Bicycle Injury Cases
These accidents often occur due to negligence. It's usually either the driver, the other vehicle, or another party that failed to exercise reasonable care. For instance, a driver might be liable if they were speeding or not paying attention to the road.
This is not to say that cyclists may not be responsible. In some cases, they might be found partially or fully at fault. Other times, liability might be shared between multiple parties.
Additionally, in some instances, a city or municipality could be held responsible for poor road conditions that contributed to the accident. Since determining liability is a complex yet important process, it's always advisable to let bicyclist accident specialists at Morgan and Morgan review your case for free.
Statute of Limitations on Bicycle Injury Cases
The statute of limitations for bicycle injury cases in New Jersey is two years from the accident date. If you miss this deadline, you'll automatically lose your right to sue, even if your claim is valid.
