Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Arizona

Negligent drivers are responsible for most accidents involving vehicles and bicyclists. Intersections are particularly dangerous, accounting for almost half of all collisions between bicycles and vehicles. Vehicles often fail to notice bicyclists when changing lanes and make wrong turns at intersections where bicyclists are present. Some drivers may become frustrated with bicyclists and fail to recognize that bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of motor vehicles.

Beyond drivers on the road, additional factors contribute to an environment where cyclists are at risk of severe accidents. One of these factors is the need for more appropriate signage and designated bike lanes. Despite these environmental hazards, the leading cause of collisions and injuries involving cyclists remains the inattentiveness of motorists.

Bicycle accidents occur for a variety of reasons, including the following: 

  • driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • driving while distracted
  • failing to yield the right-of-way
  • entering a bike lane
  • "dooring" a cyclist by opening a car door in their path
  • disregarding red lights or stop signs
  • driving at unsafe speeds
  • making hazardous turns
  • changing lanes unsafely
  • pulling out into traffic from a parking spot or driveway
  • entering the road immediately in front of a cyclist

Compensation for Bicycle Accidents in Arizona

If you are involved in a bicycle accident caused by someone else's negligence, you can receive compensation for the various personal injuries resulting from the incident. Such damages may include, but are not limited to:

  • Medical expenses, both current and in the future
  • Present and future lost income
  • Physical rehabilitation expenses
  • Job retraining costs if returning to your previous employment is no longer possible
  • Pain and suffering

Additionally, you may have suffered other losses due to your injuries. You can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault motorist to recover damages for these losses. By doing so, you can seek compensation for your medical bills, loss of income, pain and suffering, and any other losses you experienced due to the accident.
