Our bicycle accident lawyers have over twenty years experience only representing victims of bicycle and motorcycle accidents. I just came across this article about a recent accident a cyclist had with a truck, to point out the MOST common way our clients are involved in accidents with a motor vehicle. I certainly am not saying there are no other major risks, there are; I have pointed out the major ones on our site. But this one is by far the most common and can be avoided by simply educating drivers to look twice before they turn into or on a road. It is noted in the article that:
“The pickup hit the cyclist and caused her to be pushed onto the hood, the witness said. Richards then fell to the pavement and was run over by both tires on the driver’s side, said Lt. Ray Shupe, with the Durango Police Department.” “Richards raised both her hands as a reflex moments before the impact, the witness said: “She knew it was coming, I know that, because I could hear her scream.”
