Portland Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Injured While Riding a Bike? We Can Fight for Just Compensation!
Bicycling is a common method of transportation in Portland, Oregon. Not
only is it convenient, but it is also a financially beneficial mode of
commute. As a result, streets throughout the city are crowded with bicyclists
and motorists who are forced to share the road with one another. Despite
the many perks of riding a bicycle, this mode of transportation poses
a higher danger to the rider.
Distracted and negligent drivers can be a serious threat to bicyclists who are travelling
on the roads of Portland. Although laws have been set in place to reduce
the amount of
traffic accidents associated with cyclists, numerous collisions still occur as a result
of motor vehicle driver negligence. In fact, in 2012,
726 U.S. bicyclists lost their lives from an accident involving a motor vehicle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Common Causes of Bike Accidents
- Speeding drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Unsafe turns at intersections
- Sideswiping a cyclist while opening a car door
- Failing to yield
- Failing to stop at stop signs
- Driving on bicycle lanes
