What Are The Most Common Causes Of Cycling Accidents?
Drivers have an obligation to obey the laws of traffic and keep the roads safe. When they do not, the results can prove catastrophic. Some of the most frequent causes of motor vehicle crashes involving bicycles include drivers who are:
- Distracted or reckless
- Driving while intoxicated
- Taking left turns without checking for bikers
- Improperly maintain their cars
- Driving too close to shoulders or bike lanes
- Cutting off cyclists
- Sideswiping cyclists
In every scenario, the injuries tend to be much worse for the bicycle rider than the motor vehicle driver. That’s why it is important to have a bike accident attorney on your side.
Comparative Negligence In Tennessee: What To Know
Even if you were partially at fault for a crash, you may still have a chance to recover compensation. Tennessee has comparative negligence laws that allow injury victims to collect compensation proportionate to their share of fault. For example, if the insurer or the court determines that you are 20% at fault, you could recover compensation for up to 80% of your damages.
