Bicycles are becoming a more popular way to get around. They are especially becoming more common in city and metro areas. The growth of the Atlanta Beltline and other related projects in city areas contributes to more bicyclists on the roads. There are many positive aspects to this as bicycles are an eco-friendly and physically healthy mode of transportation. But, unfortunately many vehicle drivers are not used to sharing the roads with bicyclists.
Some drivers may be aggressive, inattentive, or negligent towards the bicycles that share the roads with them. Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as other drivers on the road. They also have the right to be respected and looked out for. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, our expert attorneys can help you receive your rightful compensation.
Bicycle accidents are caused by many things including:
- Vehicles pulling out in front of a bicycle.
- Drivers not checking mirrors and blindspots when changing lanes or turning.
- Drivers getting too close while driving behind a bicyclist.
- Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Distracted drivers who are on their cell phones or doing other unsafe behaviors.
- Drivers not looking both ways before pulling onto a road.
- Drivers running a red light or a stop sign.
Atlanta is a busy, thriving city with bustling streets. Cyclists have the same rights on the road as motorized vehicles do. As such, under Georgia law you have the right to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and physical suffering you face as a victim of a bicycle accident.
