What are common causes of bicycle accidents in South Carolina?

Bicycle crashes due to car accidents happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents involving cars or other vehicles include:

  • Not leaving enough space for cyclists
  • Distracted drivers hitting bicyclists
  • Texting drivers veering off the road
  • Speeding drivers not having enough time to stop or slow down
  • Reckless and aggressive drivers tailgating cyclists
  • Dooring, when a motorist opens a car door into the path of an oncoming cyclist

Cyclists have rights and drivers need to share the road with bicyclists. When they fail to do so, they need to be held accountable for their actions. That’s our job and we’re proud to work with you.

Common bicycle accident injuries

After being hit by a car while on a bike, it may not be immediately clear that you are injured. You might experience chest or leg pain, but delayed pain is also very common. That’s why it is important to get checked out by a doctor, even if you are only experiencing minor bruising after a bicycle accident. A cyclist involved in a bicycle accident can suffer:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (concussions, etc.)
  • Head injuries
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Leg injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Bruises
  • Soft tissue damage

Why are bicycle accidents so complicated?

Even when a driver clearly causes a bicycle accident, that doesn’t mean the legal case will be straightforward. Many times, cyclists encounter problems in these cases, including:

  • Drivers often deny causing cycling accidents.
  • Drivers often blame cyclists for causing accidents.
  • Insurance companies sometimes blame cyclists, as well.

Why do insurance companies sometimes give cyclists a hard time? Because there’s often a lot of money at stake. Depending on the severity of the injuries and length of recovery, accident-related expenses can add up to thousands or even millions of dollars. That’s why some insurance companies do everything they can to reduce or deny these claims. That’s not right. That’s why we want to help.
