Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles are becoming a source of transportation for many residents of Louisiana as the state aims to build more bicycle lanes, shared roadways and bicycle trails. Unfortunately, the rise in cyclists can often result in an increased number of bicycle accidents.

At Simien & Simien, LLC, we understand how devastating and life-changing a bike crash can be. If you’re feeling frustrated after your crash, you’re not alone. We’re on your side and a bicycle accident lawyer can help you recover the compensation you deserve if you have been injured due to another individual’s negligence.

Causes Of Bicycle Accidents

Louisiana laws require that cyclists and motorists obey the set rules of the road for each of their vehicles.

Yet despite this, more than 900 bicycle collisions were reported throughout Louisiana in 2013; 22 percent of these accidents were In East Baton Rouge Parish.

Some of the common causes of bike accidents include:

Some ways in which a cyclist may cause a crash include:

  • Failing to use a designated bike lane
  • Darting in and out of traffic recklessly
  • Failing to maintain a safe operating distance
  • Disobeying traffic signs and signals

Bicycle Accident Injuries

The sudden impact of a vehicle on a cyclist can be crushing and blindsiding. Although many cyclists are prepared for such situations by wearing a helmet and any other protective gear, many will still suffer life-changing injuries as a result of a wreck.

If a cyclist is not wearing a helmet they are more likely to suffer from a traumatic brain injury. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, wearing a helmet can reduce the risk of a bicycle-related head injury by nearly 80 percent.
