Lancaster Bicycle Accident Attorney

Bike Accident Lawyer Lancaster

Lancaster is a proudly green city with goals of becoming even greener and that means there are a lot of bicycles operating on our roads. It is imperative that bicycles and motor vehicles share our roadways in a manner that is safe for everyone. As you know, bicycling can be dangerous, especially when riding in traffic. Some bicycle accidents are unavoidable and often caused by a motor vehicle driver who was not aware of the bicycle, but there are precautions that bicyclists can take to greatly reduce their chance of getting into an accident.

Ways bicyclists can be safe:

  • Be visible by wearing bright colors and reflective clothes. Use bicycle lights. This is especially important when biking at night or low-light conditions.
  • Use hand signals to let people know when you are going to turn, stop, and change lanes. Do not assume the other driver/s will stop when you are making a turn. Make eye contact with drivers before turning, if possible.
  • Wear a helmet. Wearing a helmet reduces your risk of serious injury by 85% according to AAA.
  • Ride with traffic on the right side of the road and if you are cycling with a group, ride single file.
  • Obey all traffic laws and lights. Act like a car when you are riding your bicycle and do not do things like the weave in and out of traffic or run red lights even when you can see no one is coming.

Unfortunately, even if you practice extreme caution and you are a careful and law-abiding cyclist, you still cannot control the actions of other drivers on the road. You may attempt to anticipate their moves and speculate as to whether or not they are aware of you, but you never know when a driving mistake might be made that results in a bicycle accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident caused by a driver’s negligence, contact the Compass Law Group, PC. to schedule a consultation with one of our bicycle accident experts.

What to do if you are in a bicycle accident

If you are involved in an accident, of course, the most important thing is to seek proper medical care. If you are able, there are several things that you can do at the accident scene to help your case. Get pictures of the accident scene and license plate numbers of people involved in the accident. Get witness and driver contact information. Make sure police hear your version of what happened so it makes its way into the accident report. Write down everything you can remember about the accident. Capture what took place right before the accident, as well as what happened after the accident including any statements made by the driver or other witnesses.

Bicycle accident injuries can be disastrous, especially when a motor vehicle is involved. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident contact a bicycle accident attorney at Compass Law Group, PC. We will work to see that you receive the compensation to which you are duly entitled to your damages and injuries.
