Oregon Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents are not as common as crashes involving other types of vehicles. Each year across our state, there are about 500 accidents involving bicycles compared to nearly 50,000 involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles. Just because bicycle crashes are not as common does not mean that they are not often serious in nature. About 20 people were killed in Oregon bicycle accidents in 2018 and hundreds more suffered injuries. Common types of bicycle accident injuries include broken bones, facial injuries, head trauma, scarring, soft tissue injuries, and more.
Many Oregon bicycle accidents are caused by negligent drivers who fail to see the bicyclist until it is too late to avoid a collision. Although drivers are legally required to share the road with bicyclists, many motorists become impatient and attempt to pass the bicycle before it is safe to do so.
If you or a loved one have been affected by a bicycle crash in our state, it is important to protect your legal rights. Depending on the circumstances, you could be entitled to recover for your damages, including pain and suffering, lost wages, medical costs, and potentially more.
