Bicycle Accidents

A Oregon Bicycle Accident Demands Experienced Representation

Bicycling has grown in popularity in recent years. Oregon, Washington and the entire Pacific Northwest have some of the most scenic areas for cyclists. But like motorcycle riders, bicyclists have little crash protection if they're struck by a car or truck. Without warning, a bicycle accident can occur, resulting in serious injury and even wrongful death when another driver is negligent.

If you've been injured in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Call Zbinden & Curtis today for a free consultation: (503) 287-5000. We can examine your potential case and discuss your legal options.

Accidents often occur when drivers fail to see the bicyclist or observe the right of way. In many cases, the driver is distracted, perhaps sending or receiving a text message or operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In some bicycle accidents, a driver does not look and sideswipes the bicycle rider when changing lanes or turning onto another road.

Types of Bicycle Accident Injuries

Bicycle accident injuries often are permanent and can radically alter the victim's life. The following are examples of potential bicycle accident injuries:

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 716 bicyclists were killed in the United States and 52,000 people were injured on bicycles in 2008. With such a high frequency of accidents, it's important for riders to stay alert on the road. In the event of an injury, bicyclists need to understand their rights to seek compensation.
