Las Vegas Bicycle Accidents / Las Vegas Bicycle Accident Injury

Sustaining a bicycle accident injury is, unfortunately, very common in Las Vegas. The attorneys at Craig P. Kenny & Associates understand what you have experienced. Our attorneys have knowledge in every aspect of bicycle safety, equipment, roadway safety and design, and accident reconstruction.

In most bicycle vs. Las Vegas car accident cases, the motorist is almost always to blame for the accident; however, there are other reasons why a bicycle accident could occur.

Motorists must ALWAYS be aware of their surroundings while operating a vehicle. A bicycle (or any other entity that they are forced to share the roadways with for that matter) should be treated as another vehicle. For example, if you are sharing the turning lane with a bicyclist, you must ALWAYS yield to the bicyclist. You are never permitted to drive in the bike lane unless you are yielding to an ambulance or pulled over by a police officer.

As a bicyclist, you have rights and if you are injured, you must exercise them. Contact us for immediate help regarding your accident.

You should never ride a bicycle against traffic. Doing so is dangerous and creates the potential for a head-on collision with an oncoming vehicle. Riding with traffic reduces the potential for a car accident.

Turn signals are another imperative factor to consider in roadway biking. You must implement your turn signal no less than 100 feet from the point of which you are going to turn. Bicyclists do this by use of their arm in an outward, L-shaped fashion.

Just like automobile drivers are required to wear a seatbelt, bicyclists are required to wear a helmet to protect them against serious injury in the event of a collision or crash.
