Bicycle Accident Injuries – Most Common Causes

If you or someone you love has been involved in a bicycle accident in Michigan, visit an experienced personal injury attorney who gets the kind of case results that offer compensation for your injuries.

Here are some of the most common causes of bicycle accident injuries in Michigan and nationwide:

Poor Bicycle Helmet Use

There is no law in Michigan that requires bicyclists to wear a helmet, but bicycle riders increase their chances of a head injury or traumatic brain injury by neglecting to wear a helmet. If you are making sure your child is properly equipped with safety equipping before getting on a bicycle, do the same service for yourself and wear a properly fitted helmet every time you ride.

Nighttime Cycling

There are certainly times of day that are more favorable to bike riders. Getting on two wheels during daylight hours will reduce your risk of being involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. If you must get on your bicycle at night, be sure to take all precautions to increase rider visibility by wearing reflective clothing and affixing lights to your bike.

Off-Lane Bicycle Riding

Where you choose to ride affects the probability of getting into an accident. Ideally, you are riding within bike lanes that are clearly marked. If your route takes you onto less-traveled roads or narrower highways that do not have designated bike lanes, it’s essential to be extra-careful about your surroundings and the cars zooming by you – you cannot trust that the motor vehicle operators will all be cautious enough to keep you safe.

Inexperience

Every cyclist has to start somewhere, but the more inexperienced you are as a bicycle ride right alongside motor vehicles, the greater your chances of being involved in an accident. Practice, study, and memorize the rules of the road, especially if you are a newbie bicyclist.
