Who Was At Fault in the Bicycle, Motorcycle or Pedestrian Accident?

Many accidents involving motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians occur because the driver of a four-wheeled vehicle did not follow the rules of the road. Examples of driver negligence include:

  • Hitting a pedestrian in a crosswalk
  • Failing to yield to a motorcycle or bicycle that has the right of way
  • Taking a left hand turn in front of a motorcycle
  • Side-swiping a bicycle or motorcycle
  • Hitting a bicyclist properly traveling in a bicycle lane

Your recovery in a pedestrian, motorcycle or bicycle accident can be reduced if there is any evidence you contributed to the accident. To protect your right to a full recovery, it’s important to talk to a lawyer and soon as possible. The insurance company of the driver who hit you will do anything it can to blame you for the accident and reduce or even eliminate your chance of recovering compensation.
