Each year in Arizona, thousands of bicyclists are injured while riding. Many of these bicyclists are commuters who use their bikes as transportation. Others are children on smaller bikes and tricycles. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a total of 741 bicyclists were killed in accidents involving automobiles, and thousands more were injured.
At Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C., our Phoenix bicycle accident attorneys represent injured bicyclists throughout Arizona. We work closely with bicyclists as they take legal action to recover compensation for their injuries. With our help, victims and surviving family members are able to file personal injury lawsuits to claim compensation for costs associated with their accident.
We Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable
Bicyclists are particularly vulnerable to car accidents because there is little to protect them from other vehicles. This is why drivers should exercise even greater caution when driving next to a bicyclist. Arizona law states that a “buffer zone” of at least three feet should be observed when passing bicyclists, and drivers who come too close to bikers could be fined.
A common cause of bicycle accidents is careless behavior, which includes:
- Speeding too fast for conditions
- Running through a stop sign
- Failing to yield the right-of-way
- Disregarding traffic signals
- Making an improper turn
- Making an unsafe lane change
- Disregarding the bike lane
When drivers fail to exercise their proper duty of care, they compromise the safety of everyone on the road. Our highly-rated legal team, which includes knowledgeable lawyers, legal support staff, and private investigators, can help you hold negligent drivers accountable. We can start by sending our investigators to the scene of your accident to gather evidence.
