Bicycle trips account for a very small percentage of all trips in the United States. However, bicyclists face a higher risk of crash related injury and deaths than occupants in motor vehicles.
Causes of bicycle crashes include:
Inattention of vehicle drivers
Vehicle driver errors
Loose gravel or slippery road surfaces
Defects in the design or construction of the bicycle
The nighttime hours are the most dangerous for bicycle riders. If you are bicycle rider, you can protect yourself by wearing a helmet and increasing your visibility.
As a result of your bicycle accident, you may have sustained medical expenses, lost income, a reduction in your earning capacity, rehabilitation expenses as well as pain and suffering.
