What Are Causes of Bike Accidents?

Bicycle accidents can cause serious and sometimes even fatal injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of bike accident deaths, accounting for 90% of all such fatalities. 

This is primarily since cars, trucks, and vans are larger and heavier than bicycles, and thus pose a greater threat in a collision. Additionally, cyclists are not protected in the way that someone inside a motor vehicle is protected. 

These motor accidents can be the result of:

  • A motorist running a stop light or stop sign
  • A motorist dangerously cut off a bicycle entering a road
  • A motorist making a right turn in front of a cyclist
  • A motor vehicle rear-ended a bicyclist in the bike lane
  • Someone opening a car door in the path of a bicycle
