Types of Bicycle Accidents and injuries sustained
A cyclist might be hit from behind by a motorist – rear end accidents. This generally happens at night when the car or automobile driver is not able to see the bicycle or it might happen when the driver of the vehicle is high on drugs or alcohol and fails to apply brakes. A right cross might happen when a vehicle pulls out of a drive way, parking lot or an alley and pull right in front of the already moving bicycle causing the cyclist to hit the car or loosing balance and falling down. A car might also choose to turn right without any warning thus hitting the bicycle from the side.
Defects in the road are another big reason for bicycle accidents along with dog bites, bike chase and bicycle equipment failure which will be taken care of by Rory Law according to the rules and laws laid down in such cases.
A right hook might be the cause of a bicycle accident when a car decides to make a right turn quickly and fails to notice the bicycle traversing behind it. This might also happen when a bicyclist is crossing the road and a vehicle is taking a right turn. A car driver might open the car door abruptly when a cyclist is riding along and might get hit by the open door since maneuvering quickly is not an option in such a situation. A bicyclist qualifies for compensation in all these and many other situations where he has been hit by a car or any other vehicle since such accidents are known to cause grievous head and neck injuries, lacerations, bruises, bumps, skull and other fractures.
