Every year hundreds of bicyclists are killed and thousands are injured across the U.S. In many cases, the accidents are caused by the wrongful actions of automobile drivers. Bicyclists that are injured in Keller are allowed to recover compensation for medical expenses, time off work, and pain and suffering. Many bicyclists are injured because of the negligence of other drivers on the road. Many drivers drive recklessly or fail to pay attention. They may be distracted by their phones or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Urban areas have the highest risk for bicycle accidents, in part because there are more bicyclists and motorists sharing the roads. However, regardless of where a bicycle accident happens, it’s often a result of negligence or recklessness on the part of the driver. In most urban areas, bicyclists have the same right of way rights and yield rights as other vehicles on the roads, yet motorists either do not yield, or do not see the bicyclists. Some of the most serious accidents happen when motorists are turning either left or right, and turn directly into the bicyclist.
