The Rights of Bicycle Riders
The basis for any lawsuits that involve bikes is that bicyclists have the majority of rights on almost all roadways, and assuming they’re obeying all of the rules of the road, those rights are something that must be respected by others. If the roadway you were travelling on is one that allows bicycle traffic and the motorist acted negligently, then the accident may be the fault of the driver and open up the door for you to file a bicycle personal injury lawsuit and do so successfully.
Circumstances That Affect Your Case
There are many different types of circumstances that are going to affect your case, and the facts are more often than not going to show the other driver was at fault if the driver hit you and you were riding in the designated area and obeying the rules of the road.
Types of things that will strengthen your case are if the driver:
- Was Texting
- Was Speeding
- Was On Their Phone
- Was Playing Their Music Loudly
- Had Multiple Passengers and Was Holding a Conversation
- Had Tinted Windows
- Had Window Stickers
- Was Doing Anything Else That Could Have Been a Distraction That Led To the Accident
You can potentially use other things in your case as well, such as, if you think the driver was under the influence like illegal or prescription drugs, or a failed Breathalyzer test. Additionally, if the driver received a ticket for anything at all your case can be strengthened, including driving while impaired or failure to yield the right of way. By contacting a bicycle personal injury lawyer at The Doan Law Firm we’ll be able to investigate all of the facts of the case and help to determine and prove the negligence of the other driver in order to help you win your lawsuit.
If your accident happened in a park where there is also the presence of vehicle traffic, there’s also the possibility for negligence of park administration for things including:
- Not Providing A Bicycle Lane
- Not Properly Planning For Mixed Traffic
- Not Posting Appropriate Speed Limits
Alternatively, if you were riding at nighttime and you weren’t wearing any reflective lights or clothing that could affect your case negatively. If you were riding while under the influence and it can be used in court, it’s something that can also harm your case. Additionally, if you didn’t follow the rules of the road, your case will likely be in jeopardy.
