Even when drivers aren’t being aggressive, they are often very bad at watching out for bikes. Even when cyclists are wearing reflective clothing and using lights, car drivers often ignore them. Even worse, if you’re on a bike and you get hit by a car, you are likely to be very badly injured. If you get hit, it’s not your fault for riding a bike; it’s the other driver’s fault for not watching where he or she is going.
Bicycle accident cases present specific issues that require the experience of a Fort Collins bicycle accident lawyer. For example, cyclists often use technology that tracks their rides. This can be essential to proving liability in a bicycle case and, if your level of activity decreases after the crash, it can show how your life has been affected by the crash. In addition, if your case goes to trial, you need lawyers who are aware of juror’s biases against cyclists and who are prepared to deal with those jurors effectively.
If you’ve been injured while riding by a driver who was being aggressive or not looking where he or she was going, contact the experienced Fort Collins bicycle accident lawyers at Cannon Hadfield Stieben & Doutt, LLC today.
