Causes Of Bicycle Accidents
Under Florida traffic laws, bicyclists share most of the rights and responsibilities of drivers and trucks. All too often, motorists do not respect the rights of bicyclists. Since bicycle riders are mostly unprotected in the event of an accident, incidents of negligence can lead to catastrophic injuries and even wrongful death.
Bicycle accidents can occur when a motorist:
- Fails to yield right of way to a bicyclist
- Merges into the bicyclist’s lane without warning
- Crowds a bicyclist off the shoulder of the road
- Fails to observe bike lanes
- Commits a traffic violation of any kind
