The Columbus Bicycle Accident Lawyers

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

With all the students who bike to class at Ohio State and the workers who use bikes to get to work it’s safe to say that cycling is a popular way to get around town. Whether cycling is your primary form of transportation or a recreational activity you take part in from time to time, it doesn’t change the dangerous nature of riding alongside motor vehicle traffic.

Unfortunately, many Ohio motorists don’t know or simply don’t care about Ohio’s bicycling laws. With more and more cyclists and an increasing number of aggressive or inattentive drivers, it’s not hard to see how this can be a problem that puts cyclists at risk of sustaining life-changing injuries.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Even if cyclists 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.

Treatment costs can quickly 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. The bicycle accident attorneys at Ross, Midian, & Breitmayer can help you and your loved ones recover compensation for medical bills and missed financial opportunities.

Common bicyclist injuries include:

  • Head and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments and soft tissue injuries
  • Disfigurement

Who Is at Fault in a Car-Bike Accident?

The at-fault party in a car-bike accident is determined by weighing the negligence of both parties. Negligence is when one or both parties breach the duty of care they owe to one another. As such, if a motorist strikes a bicyclist who is in compliance with all local bicycle laws, then the motorist will be at-fault.

If both parties are found to be negligent, the injured party may only be able to recover a percentage of the total compensation sought. For example, if a bicyclist was found to be 20% responsible for the accident that resulted in their injury, they may only be able to recover 80% of their total claim.

A motorist will likely be found at fault if any of the following apply to their part in the accident. If you are unsure whether or not the motorist is at-fault for your accident, our experienced bike accident lawyers can assess your case for you.
