Bicycle accidents can lead to devastating injuries or even the loss of life. Based on the circumstances of the accident, a bicyclist can suffer multiple fractures, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, concussion, or ligament or tendon damage. In these situations, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced Glendale bicycle accident attorney at The Law Offices of John Phebus.
The most dangerous type of bicycle accident is a bike-car collision. Protected only by a helmet, bicyclists will likely suffer severe injuries in even a low-speed collision. The bicyclist can be injured not only by the impact of the collision, but also by the fall to the ground. There are several factors that can lead to a bicycle accident, including:
- Cars entering a roadway from a driveway, parking lot or parking garage
- Cars failing to visually clear an intersection before turning
- Cars using a bike lane to pass other vehicles
- Cars failing to yield to bikers
