Utah Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Salt Lake City is increasingly a bicycle-friendly community. But make no mistake—riding a bicycle on Salt Lake City streets presents a very real danger to bicyclists. Unfortunately, many cyclists become the victim of an accident requiring the services of a bicycle accident attorney.

A Proven Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicyclists in Utah are obligated to follow the same rules and regulations as other motorists on the road. In return, bicyclists are afforded certain protections to facilitate their safe interaction with automobile and truck drivers. Motorists must yield the right of way to bicyclists at intersections as they would for other motor vehicles or pedestrians. Motorists must also yield the right of way to bicyclists in the bike lane. If a motorist passes a bicyclist on the road, the motorist must do so in an adjacent lane to the left or with at least three feet of clearance.

Unfortunately, too many Utah motorists ignore or fail to comply with these simple measures for bicyclist safety. Bicycles are no match for automobiles or trucks, so even the least violent of collisions can leave riders with devastating injuries. Bicycle accident victims often remain hospitalized for an extended period and miss substantial time from work. A Utah bicycle accident lawyer can help victims or their loved ones recover the compensation they deserve in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Bicycle Accident Attorney Serving Salt Lake County

If you have been hurt in a bicycle accident, or someone you love has been seriously injured or killed, it is important to speak with a reliable  personal injury lawyer. No matter the circumstances of an accident, insurance companies and defense attorneys raise every possible defense to question the validity of an injury. They often claim injuries are pre-existing and not the result of negligence. They may also contend that injuries are grossly over-exaggerated. Fortunately, an experienced bicycle accident attorney can overcome these defenses.
