Cleveland Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Columbus Bike Injury Lawyer
Under Ohio law, bike riders are supposed to be given the same considerations and rights as every other vehicle on the road. Unfortunately, many car drivers refuse to yield the right of way, or they treat bikers as nuisances to be ignored or brushed aside. Adult and children bikers suffer some of the most serious injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents, often because of gross negligence or misconduct on the part of drivers.
If you or your child was injured in a car-bike accident in Ohio, talk to an attorney at the personal injury litigation firm of Dennis Seaman & Associates in Cleveland. Bicycle accident injury cases often come down to he-said-she-said testimony by the persons involved and eyewitnesses. To thoroughly investigate the accident and get the facts right, we work with independent accident reconstruction specialists and medical experts to determine the full extent of damages for medical care and financial losses.
Children and Bike Accidents
Car drivers have a special responsibility to watch out for children riding bikes. Young people cannot be expected to know the rules of the road and are often most vulnerable to injury from inattentive drivers.
Injuries to children involved in bike accidents are often the result of:
- Car drivers speeding and reckless driving
- Car driver DUIs
- Distracted drivers, talking on cell phones
- Failure to yield the right of way to bikers
- Drivers ignoring traffic signals
- Drivers looking left rather than right when making a right turn into an intersection
