Helping MO Bicycle Accident Victims Assert Their Legal Rights

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports1 that nearly 50,000 cyclists were injured in accidents involving motorized vehicles in 2012. While bicycling and other forms of pedal-powered transportation are both healthy and efficient, they also expose riders to the risk of serious bodily injury. When bicycles are involved in accidents with cars, trucks, or other vehicles, the injuries that victims sustain can be extremely serious. In some cases, victims may be left with permanent complications as a result of their injuries as well as massive and potentially ongoing medical bills. Fortunately, if bicyclists can establish that their accident was caused by the negligence of a driver, in many cases they can recover for these and other losses.

Driver Negligence Can Cause Serious Accidents in Missouri

Generally, under Missouri tort law2, a person who is unintentionally injured by another must be able to identify the negligent conduct that caused their accident. There are many ways that motorist negligence could result in a bicycle accident. Some of the most common include the following:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Failing to properly maintain a vehicle
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Distracted driving

Not all driver negligence is readily apparent, and an experienced accident injury lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances of your accident in order to determine if any evidence of negligence exists. The types of evidence an attorney may gather include cell phone records, information from a car’s onboard computers, witness statements, and analyzing the road and weather conditions that existed at the time of your crash.
