Bicycle Accidents Caused by Road Conditions

B&D Law Group

Whether you are a long-time bicyclist or just establishing your new passion, you are undoubtedly excited to reap the benefits bicycling offers you. Not only is it a cheaper alternative to other forms of transportation, but bicycling is also an environmentally-friendly way to exercise and improve your health. However, despite these incredible advantages, there are still many dangers to riding a bicycle, ranging from the recklessness of other drivers to external factors such as weather and road conditions.

Poorly maintained roads are the bane of every bicyclist’s existence and for good reason, as they are the source of countless accidents. People driving other vehicles may not suffer the consequences of these conditions as a bicyclist would, due to how exposed and uncovered riders are. Bicyclists do not have the luxury of an airbag or other protective measures beyond a helmet and basic safety gear. This means any injuries incurred are far more dangerous and potentially fatal.

If your accident was caused by any of the following dangerous road conditions, you may have a claim:

  • Uneven roads
  • Lack of road markings
  • Lack of lighting
  • Road debris
  • Construction zones
  • Poor landscaping
  • Damaged, confusing, or concealed signs
  • Potholes

Who is Responsible?

Road maintenance is a vital responsibility of the government and just as drivers are held accountable for the negligence, the government should be, too. The city is expected to support, serve, and protect its citizens. Don’t let your taxpayer dollars go to waste when they are meant to prevent situations like this.
