Even a mistake that seems small to a car driver can result to serious bicycle accidents. Every time a driver fails to look carefully before pulling out of a parking space or a driveway, stop at the red light or intersection or give enough distance while passing a cyclist, an accident could occur, which can have severe consequences for the bicyclist. Even when a cyclist is wearing appropriate protection, he or she is simply no match for a motor vehicle that weighs several thousand pounds. In addition, Pads and helmets cannot match seat belts, air bags and a steel enclosure that protect a car driver. It is no surprise then that extensive injuries are common in bicycle accidents, which can include lacerations, ruptured organs, broken bones or even death.

Bicycle accidents can result to huge hospital bills and a long time away from your work, which can combine to produce a huge impact on your economic stability. Most of the time, the insurance provider of the offending driver would dispute your claims because they tend to believe that cyclists have no right to be in the highway and should yield to motor vehicles in almost any situation. They are wrong of course, since it is clearly stated in the law that cyclists have the right to use roadways. In addition, insurance adjusters would usually treat a cyclist injury lightly and unjustly, making use of generalizations and biases to minimize your claim and avoid paying just compensations.
