Millions of people rely on their bicycles as their main mode of transportation. With endless miles of winding and rolling roadways across Northern Michigan’s beautiful vistas and landscapes, it is no wonder why cycling enthusiasts take to the road to ride. Cyclists are there to be seen but yet, they commonly are the ones who tragically are not seen. And the consequences are, indeed, tragic. The statistics for car versus bicycle accidents remain staggering.
When bicycle personal injury accidents happen, it’s important to involve a Michigan bicycle accident lawyer. Unfortunately, the most common accidents involving bicycles are when they are struck by motor vehicles.
What Types of Bicycle Accidents Happen?
Bicycle accidents can occur for a number of reasons. Often a bicyclist is injured when a motorist is not sharing the road or is oblivious to the cyclist’s presence because of distracted driving. Often times driver’s don’t follow the rules of the road as they fail to understand that bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorized vehicles when they are using our roadways.
