Liability in Car/Bicycle Accidents

Liability in Car/Bicycle Accidents

Monday, May 13th, 2013

As a bicyclist you have certain obligations, most of which are to follow the same traffic rules as the cars with whom you share the road. However, the drivers of those cars are obligated to you as well. You have a right to safely ride on the same road as cars. When you’re safely riding your bike and a negligent or reckless driver causes an accident, that driver is liable, and you should speak to our Poughkeepsie-area accident attorney about your case.

Our accident attorney understands that you are uniquely vulnerable to personal injury while riding your bike. Another driver’s mistakes can be devastating to you.

There’s a simple way to make sure that you have the opportunity to pursue compensation after your accident: follow the rules of the road.

For a bicyclist, this means:

  • Obeying all right of way laws
  • Making yourself as visible as possible
  • Coming to complete stops at intersections

Bicyclists can be held liable for accidents if they don’t follow the rules of the road.

However, if you’ve followed the law and still ended up with significant injuries following an accident that wasn’t your fault, our accident lawyer can help in this difficult time.

If you need an experienced, Poughkeepsie, New York-area accident lawyer to help after your bicycle accident, please contact Charles N. Rock, P.L.L.C for a free initial consultation.
