Bicycle Accidents Archives

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.

Drivers must be more cautious when a child bicyclist may be near

In Rhode Island, it is very common that you see children riding their bicycles on a regular basis. This is particularly true when the weather outside is nice. Some automobile drivers will tell you that they've had a close call or two with an adolescent bicyclist. Sadly, a bicycle accident will occur every now and then, seriously injuring or killing the child. While drivers are quick to blame the children, it isn't always the child's fault.

Driver cited for marijuana possession after bicycle accident

Currently, recreational marijuana use is being considered, but it is not yet legal. Even if it were, this would not mean that one could be under the influence of marijuana while driving because this is a drug that can still impair one's judgment behind the wheel and result in an unnecessary accident. According to reports, a 19-year-old was hit by a vehicle while he was riding his bicycle in the northbound lane of a road a little after midnight. He is currently in the hospital. The bicycle accident took place around Portsmouth Town Hall in Rhode Island.
