common Types of bicycle accidents

Bicycle accidents often occur because one or more drivers behaved negligently. A driver may have overlooked the bicyclist in their blind spot, been confused about who had the right of way, or committed a traffic violation such as running a red light. Here are some common causes of bicycle accidents:

If a driver accidentally drifts outside of their lane while traveling next to a bicyclist, they could hit the cyclist with the side of the car, causing an accident. Side-swiping accidents often result in the cyclist losing control and suffering serious injuries.

This type of accident happens when a driver making a left-hand turn doesn’t see the bicyclist, either because they failed to look or the bicyclist was in the driver’s blind spot.

This type of bicycle accident occurs when a driver isn’t giving the road their full attention and hits a bicyclist from behind. Rear-end collisions can cause serious injuries, especially if the cyclist is propelled into traffic.

Dooring can result in severe, life-threatening injuries. It occurs when a driver fails to look before opening their car door, hitting a bicyclist that is in the bike lane or traveling down the street.

common Types of bicycle accidents

Several types of negligent behavior can lead to bicycle accidents, including:

Speeding is another dangerous activity motorists often engage in. When drivers travel at high speeds, they reduce their ability to react quickly to avoid a bicyclist. Speeding also increases the likelihood of severe injuries to the cyclist.

Drowsy driving is a major problem across the country, as it makes it difficult for drivers to focus on the road and decreases their reaction time if they need to slow or stop to avoid a cyclist. According to the CDC, one in 25 adult drivers reports having fallen asleep behind the wheel within the last 30 days.

Distracted driving is extremely dangerous and includes activities like using a navigational system, talking to other passengers, or using a mobile device. Texting and driving is particularly hazardous because it involves visual, physical, and cognitive distractions. According to the CDC, if a driver spends just five seconds sending a text while traveling 55 miles per hour, they have covered the length of a football field.

Alcohol impairs a driver’s ability to focus on the road and process information clearly. The CDC reports that with a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05%, drivers find it more difficult to steer and track moving objects like bicyclists.

Aggressive driving is a common cause of bicycle accidents. Motorists sometimes do not give cyclists the right-of-way or are unwilling to share the road. Examples of aggressive behaviors include following a bicyclist too closely, honking or flashing lights at the cyclist, yelling or threatening the cyclist, dangerous passing, and accelerating to pass the cyclist only to turn directly in front of them.
