Failure to Yield Bicycle Accidents
When a Driver Does Not Yield to a Bike Rider
The rights of bicyclists are constantly ignored by those in motor vehicles. However, bicycles have the same right to the road as everyone else. The law requires drivers to yield to bike riders when bike riders have the right of way. When drivers fail to yield, it can result in the bicyclist being seriously injured or killed.
Victims of failure to yield bicycle accidents can turn to Rittgers & Rittgers for help. With more than 30 years of experience on our side, we know what it takes to get you the compensation you need. The proof: We have recovered millions of dollars already, allowing people like you to cover medical bills and other costs that resulted from being hit by a car, truck or motorcycle.
Were you hit by a motor vehicle while riding your bike through an intersection because the driver took a left turn into your path? Did a driver take a right turn from a red light or stop sign and collide with your bike when you had the right of way? These are some of the most common examples of a negligent driver failing to yield to a bike rider.
When we investigate these cases, our attorneys frequently find that these bike accidents are often distracted driving accidents. We find that the negligent driver did not have his or her eyes on the road at all, and was instead sending text messages or engaged in some other distraction. We hold these drivers accountable.
