Car vs. Bicycle: The Car Always Wins

The human body on a bicycle is no match for tons of steel rushing along a roadway. A bicyclist who is hit by a car or truck nearly always suffers serious injuries. Fatalities are common when people and cars collide. In these situations, you may face massive medical bills, and you may be prevented from working while recovering from your injuries. You may even suffer permanent disabilities that could affect your ability to work and your quality of life for years to come. An experienced accident lawyer is a valuable source of help and information for you and your family at this time. Attorney John Garvey can help you understand your options for recovering financial compensation from the driver who struck you and caused you to suffer injuries.

Advocate for Injured Victims in Santa Clara County

An accident can happen in the blink of an eye and when you least expect it. You could be struck by a negligent driver while out for your morning ride, while exercising your dog, or in a grocery store parking lot. Some common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers: Drivers often fail to fully pay attention while behind the wheel. They may talk on cell phones, send or receive text messages, eat and drink, apply makeup, or they may simply fail to watch the road because they are daydreaming.
  • Reckless driving: Drivers may disregard the safety of bike riders and others by speeding, running stop signs or stop lights, failing to accommodate bike lanes, and failing to yield to riders and pedestrians using the crosswalk.
  • Drunk driving: Drivers who drink alcohol or use marijuana or other drugs before getting behind the wheel will be much more likely to engage in unsafe behavior, and they may be unable to maintain full control over their vehicles and avoid colliding with bicycles.

No matter what caused your accident, you deserve to learn about your legal options from an experienced lawyer. Attorney John Garvey can advise you on the best steps to take to hold a negligent driver responsible for your injuries.
