Reasons for Wrongful Deaths in Bicycle Accidents

When a bike accident is caused by the negligence of another person or multiple parties, the victim's family may pursue compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. Some of the most common causes of wrongful deaths for bicyclists include:

  • Driver negligence - Drivers of motor vehicles are required to share the road safely with bicycles. Bicyclists have the same rights as other vehicles, but many drivers fail to respect these rights. Fatal bicycle accidents can occur when drivers pass bicycles too closely, do not maintain adequate distance when following bicycles, or fail to yield the right of way to bicyclists at intersections. Drivers who are speeding, texting, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or engaging in other reckless behaviors can fatally injure bicyclists due to their negligence.
  • Dooring - Many serious bike accidents occur when drivers or passengers open their doors and block the path of bicyclists. This can cause a bicyclist to fall and strike their head on the ground, or they may be thrown into traffic and struck by other vehicles, resulting in fatal injuries.
  • Dangerous bike lanes, paths, or trails - If roads do not have adequate bicycle lanes, or if bike lanes or bike paths are poorly designed or maintained, this can create hazardous conditions for bicyclists and increase the likelihood of fatal accidents when bicyclists are struck by motor vehicles. Bicyclists may also be fatally injured in accidents that occur on off-road trails, and in some cases, a property owner may be liable for their failure to maintain safe trails or warn bicyclists of the risks of injury.
  • Defective parts - Some bicycle accidents may be caused by defective auto parts, such as brakes or tires that affect a driver's ability to stop in time to avoid a collision or cause a driver to lose control. Fatal bicycle accidents may also be caused by defective bicycle parts or safety equipment, such as brakes that lock up or helmets that do not provide adequate protection. In these situations, family members may be able to hold the manufacturers of defective parts or equipment liable for wrongful deaths of bicyclists.
