Aggressive Personal Injury Attorneys Prioritizing Your Safe Recovery and Deserved Compensation

Phoenix Bicycle Accident Attorney

Arizona Bike Accident Claims

With so little to protect them in the event that they are struck by a vehicle, bicycle accident victims commonly suffer injuries that change their lives, and the lives of their loved ones. According to the CDC, in 2010 alone, U.S. emergency rooms saw over half a million injuries related to bicycle accidents, and nearly 800 accidents resulted in fatalities.

Injuries that are commonly sustained in bicycle accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Fractures & broken bones
  • Internal bleeding and bruising
  • Back & spinal cord damage
  • Permanent disability or paralysis

Not only are these injuries painful and difficult to recover from, but they can also significantly decrease an individual's quality of life. In a matter of seconds a healthy bike rider can suddenly be debilitated by an injury that prevents them from being able to work or conduct their daily routine.

If you have been involved in an accident with a vehicle as a bicyclist, it is important to contact an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney from Knowles Law Firm, PLC to explore your legal options. You may be entitled to collect compensation for your injuries, as well as any other damages like pain and suffering, diminished earning capacity, and more.

Drivers’ Duty of Care

Drivers are obligated as part of their driving privileges to exercise good judgment on the road. This means that any careless actions while driving could potentially make them liable for any damage or injuries they cause to others.

Examples of careless actions include:

  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Failing to yield right-of-way
  • Speeding
  • Drifting into the bicycle lane
  • Failing to appropriately use turn signals
  • Driving too close to bicyclists

Arizona’s Three-Foot Passing Law

Under Arizona state law, drivers must be aware that they must provide at least three feet of space between their vehicle and any bicyclists they pass. This is to ensure the safety of bicyclists and help avoid an accident. If drivers are negligent in this respect and cause a serious physical injury or death to a bicyclist, they can be responsible for fines of between $500 and $1,000 in addition to any other damages they may be sued for.
