Hartford Bicycle Accident Attorney

Pursuing Damages for Your Bicycle Accident Case

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 726 bicyclists died and 49,000 were injured in accidents involving motor vehicles in a recent year. Distracted, intoxicated, or aggressive drivers who are not obeying traffic laws or are not on alert for bicyclists are largely responsible for these tragic accidents. If you or someone you love has suffered catastrophic injuries or wrongful death in a bicycle accident, you need an experienced Hartford injury attorney on your side.

Who Is Responsible?

Although bicyclists have a legal right to share the road, this right does little to actually protect them from drivers who are not paying attention or don't respect these rights. On the street, cars and other motor vehicles will always win due to size, power, and speed. It is critically important to investigate the accident and determine the cause to find out if the bicyclist is entitled to damages.

In many injury-causing accidents between a bike and a car, the motor vehicle driver was:

  • Texting or talking on a cell phone
  • Traveling at excessive speed
  • Failing to come to a complete stop at an intersection
  • Under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Inattentive to surroundings
  • Disobeying other traffic laws

There are also cases where the city or county has been remiss in clearly marking bike lanes or giving bicyclists adequate notice of merging motor traffic. These are just a sample of the many different factors that lead to dangerous or deadly accidents between bicycles and cars, and in the majority of cases, the vehicle driver was at fault.
