Causes & Injuries

Bicycle accidents are most commonly caused by driver negligence and unsafe road conditions. If a bicyclist is injured in accident because of a hazardous or dangerous road condition, the city government responsible for maintaining the road can be held liable for damages. In addition, if the accident was caused by a negligent driver, the driver will be held liable for damages as well.
