Bicycle Safety

Those who ride their bicycle as a main form of transportation can agree that it has many benefits. Along with being fun, it is also great for your health and is beneficial for the environment by being emissions-free. However, there are also some very real risks that accompany this method of travel and it is important for cyclists to understand these hazards before getting on the road.

Not only do bicycles not have as much safety equipment as cars, cyclists are vulnerable to injury since their bodies will be exposed to the point of impact. If you or someone you love has been involved in a bicycle accident and believe a negligent party is responsible, contact the experienced Phoenix bike accident lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. at 800-763-0964 today.

Safety Tips for Bicyclists

The best way to avoid an accident on your bike is by engaging in safe behavior at all times. The following tips will help you make the best decisions on the road:

  • Always follow to traffic signals, lights and warning indicators. This includes red lights and stop signs.
  • Use hand signals when turning to communicate with fellow cars.
  • Wear bright, reflective clothing at all times, even during the day.
  • Consider purchasing a headlight, safety triangle or rear light to wear when riding at nighttime.
  • Do not ride against traffic.
  • Make sure to wear a helmet at all times.

Even the safest cyclists are still involved in accidents. If this collision was due to a reckless motorist, pedestrian or other cyclist, you may be able to pursue your case in a court of law. If the outcome is in your favor, you could receive financial compensation to help you recover from physical, emotional and monetary damages you incurred as a result of the accident.
