Injured In A Cycling Accident? Call A Bicycle Or Motorcycle Accident Lawyer From Tacoma
If you’ve been injured in a bicycle or motorcycle accident, a motorcycle accident lawyer in Tacoma can help.
Bicycle and motorcycle accidents are very similar in nature. It is not uncommon for a bicyclist or motorcyclist to collide with a motor vehicle when they are both on the road, however, a collision of this nature can result in serious injuries or even death. The far majority of the time, the driver of the motor vehicle is at fault because he or she may not have been attuned to his or her surroundings. Many drivers of motor vehicles do not respect the rights of people who ride bicycles or motorcycles.
Bicycle/motorcycle accidents can be caused by drivers who:
- Switch lanes before checking their blind spot
- Make turns directly in front of a person riding a bicycle or motorcycle
- Sideswipe cyclists who are riding on the shoulder of the road
- Don’t stop at stop lights or stop signs
- Drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Pull out of their driveway before looking for cyclists or pedestrians
Many motor vehicle drivers assume that they have all the rights to the road and cyclists have none, however, the law recognizes bicycle and motorcycle riders as having the same right to the road as motorists do.
The last thing you expect when heading out to ride your bicycle or motorcycle is that you will be hit by a car, but if you were involved in an accident while you were riding, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. A bicycle or motorcycle accident lawyer based in Tacoma can help you file a personal injury claim and recover damages.
