Motorist Negligence in Bicycle Accidents

There is still a predominant attitude among motorists that bicycles are secondary vehicles on the road and not worthy of precedence or the right-of-way. Even worse is that too many drivers forget entirely that bicycles could be in the vicinity and take actions that harm bicyclists without even looking for them.

Common instances of motorist negligence in bicycle accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Following too closely (tailgating)
  • Drifting into bicycle lanes
  • Failing to look or signal before a turn
  • Failing to look before exiting a vehicle (door injuries)
  • Drunk or drug-impaired driving

If one of these examples—or any other irresponsible motorist behavior—led to your bicycle accident injury, then our firm is ready to hear from you. If necessary, a dedicated White Plains personal injury lawyer is ready to take swift, proactive action to substantiate the circumstances of your injury and file suit for maximum compensation on your behalf.
