Bicycle accidents which also involve automobiles, more often than not, result in serious injuries. Both the cyclists and the drivers are then obligated to adhere to the safety precautions and rules on the road to avoid any type of traffic incident.
In this particular circumstance, there are factors that need to be examined thoroughly to determine the cause of the collision. Was the driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Was there any recklessness or negligence on either of the two parties?
