Handling All Types of Bicycle Accident Cases
Common causes of bicycle accidents include drivers turning right into a cyclist (right hook), drivers turning left into a cyclist (left hook), intersection collisions, drivers crossing into dedicated bicycle lanes, and car door collisions. Bicycle accidents can even occur without contact when driver negligence forces cyclists to take evasive action. At Mayor Law, a Portland bicycle accident attorney will help you pursue your personal injury claim against the at-fault driver and their insurance company. Let’s review some sample scenarios.
Issues Facing Cyclists
The percentage of bicycle fatalities in Oregon is the third-highest in the nation, at 4.5% of all traffic fatalities. While Portland has implemented significant improvements to help integrate cyclists into city traffic patterns, the fatality and injury rate remains the third highest in the nation at 3.87 fatalities per million population.
Cyclists face a unique set of challenges as they become an increasing part of urban commuting. To cope with these challenges the city of Portland has implemented bike lanes, bike boxes, cycle tracks, sharrows, and bicycle boulevards all in an effort to safely integrate cyclists and motorists into the same commuting space. While these efforts have produced positive results, vulnerable cyclists are still subject to debilitating injuries caused by drivers unaware of their presence, or right-of-way laws. If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you need the assistance of an experienced Portland bicycle accident attorney.
