Causes of Bicycle Injuries

There are many causes of bike accidents. A few common example include, extreme weather conditions, poor road conditions, reckless motorists and intoxicated drivers.  A bicycle injury may also be the result of either the rider or cyclist failing to yield the right-of-way or either of them making an unexpected turn that puts them in a collision path with the other.

Bicyclists and motorist are both expected to follow the same rules of the road. In some cases, a few bike and vehicle involved accidents may have been avoided altogether if both bicycle riders and motorists paid more attention to their surroundings and avoided distractions, such as talking on the phone.
