Causes of Bicycle Accidents in West Chester, PA
Negligence is the leading cause of bicycle accidents. Many drivers are simply distracted, not paying attention to bicyclists, or unaware bicyclists are on the roadway at all.
Negligent drivers may do any of the following:
- A driver cuts off a bicyclist upon entering the roadway;
- A driver makes a right turn in front of a bicyclist traveling straight in the bike lane;
- A driver rear-ends a bicyclist trying to avoid a car parked in the bike lane;
- A driver of a parked car opens their door into the bicyclist; and
- A driver runs a traffic light or stop sign.

- Head and brain injuries, including traumatic brain injury;
- Neck and back injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis;
