Michigan Bicycle Accident Attorney Proudly Serving Southeast Michigan
Our bicycle accident attorneys in Michigan know that bicycles are an increasingly popular method of transportation. A bike is easier on the wallet than a car, environmentally friendly, and a practical way to combat rush-hour gridlock for commuters. Bicyclists are granted the same legal rights as motorists, but there is a big difference between cyclists and drivers. Riders across Southeast Michigan area face an increased risk of serious injury in an accident compared to drivers of cars.
Injuries sustained in bicycle accidents can be particularly severe due to the unprotected nature of the rider. Even with a helmet on, a cyclist still has little protection in a collision with a motor vehicle such as a car or truck. Riders in bicycle versus car accidents are at risk of suffering broken bones and catastrophic injuries to the head, neck, and spinal cord. At Fraser & Souweidane, we understand that most of these accidents are preventable. In many cases, they are caused by the negligence of the driver of a car or trucker who causes a truck accident involving a bike. Common causes of bicycle accidents can include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Failing to check mirrors and blind spots
