Columbus Bicycle Accident Lawyers

We’ll Handle Your Case While You Focus on Your Recovery

Bicycling is a popular way to travel around Columbus. Students often bike to class at Ohio State, and many employees bike to work on nice days. It is also a common recreational activity, enjoyed by serious and casual cyclists alike. However, there are many motorists who do not understand Ohio’s bicycle laws or how to share the road with cyclists. This puts cyclists at serious risk of an accident and, with it, life-changing injuries.

The Columbus bicycle accident attorneys at Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC are devoted to giving you the support you and your family need after a bike accident. The only thing you should have to worry about is your recovery—you can rely on us to handle the rest. We will fight to hold negligent drivers responsible and work to obtain compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.

We encourage you to call us 24/7 at (614) 450-2223 to learn more about how our attorneys can help you get back on your feet. Your initial consultation is completely free and confidential.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Even if bicyclists wear protective gear, such as bicycle helmets, they still face a high risk of serious injury if they are hit by a car. A person on a bike is simply no match for a large, heavy, fast-moving vehicle. Sadly, this leads to cyclists suffering catastrophic and, in some cases, fatal injuries when they are struck by cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles.

Common bicyclist injuries include:

These and other serious injuries require immediate emergency attention and typically result in extensive, long-term medical care. The cost of treatment can easily soar, leaving victims and their families struggling to keep up with mounting medical bills. When victims’ injuries prevent them from returning to work, either temporarily or permanently, it adds an additional financial burden to an already challenging situation.

When Is a Motorist at Fault for a Bicycle Accident?

Motorists have a responsibility to drive safely, especially with bicyclists on the road. Any driver who does not understand or follow Ohio’s bicycle laws could be considered negligent or even reckless.

A motorist is likely at fault for a bicycle accident when the accident was caused by the driver:

  • Speeding
  • Violating traffic laws
  • Failing to properly share the road
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving while intoxicated/under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Failing to check for cyclists before turning or merging
  • Passing too closely
  • Being careless or negligent
  • Following too closely behind a cyclist
  • Traveling in a designated bicycle lane
  • Opening a car door into the path of an oncoming cyclist
  • Driving while fatigued

If you or a loved one was injured in a bike accident, it is important for you to act quickly. Protect your health and seek medical attention as soon as possible.
