Committed and compassionate advocacy for victims of bicycle accidents

Even though the unofficial end of summer -- the start of the school year -- is now just a few weeks away, there is still plenty of time left to enjoy favorite outdoor activities from gardening and barbequing to fishing and, of course, bicycling. In fact, many people will ride their bicycles right up until the snow flies while even a few more hardy souls will continue to do so right through the winter.

What all of this means from a safety perspective is that motorists must continue to be on the lookout for bicyclists, and bicyclists must continue to remain vigilant against the reckless actions of motorists.

Some of these reckless actions include:

  • Passing bicyclists too closely
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Turning right on a red light and hitting bicyclists approaching from behind
  • Turning in front of bicyclists at intersections or driveways
  • Failing to scan surroundings for bicyclists while backing out or opening vehicle doors
  • Neglecting to see bicyclists due to distracted driving
  • Overtaking bicyclists but failing to see them until it's too late

In case you have any doubts about just how real the threat of bicycle accidents is, consider statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showing that in 2013 alone more than 900 bicyclists lost their lives while estimated 494,000 were taken to emergency rooms for treatment for serious injuries.

At Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLP, we know how devastating bicycle accidents can be for victims and their families. Indeed, those bicyclists fortunate enough to survive a collision caused by a negligent motorist are frequently left with life-changing and wholly debilitating bodily harm from traumatic brain injuries to spinal trauma.

Thanks to our decades of experience, however, we know what it takes to prepare and present wholly compelling cases, and to fight to secure the justice and peace of mind that bicycle accident victims deserve.
