The Five Most Common Types of Bicycle Accidents Involving a Vehicle Collision
- A vehicle making a right turn across the cyclist’s lane of travel;
- A vehicle turning left at an intersection;
- The failure of a motorist to stop at a red light or stop sign; and
- A vehicle or cyclist passing on the right.
In the past, California has led the nation with the highest number of bicyclist deaths in motor vehicle collisions (it may still be cumulatively). The latest publication from NHTSA’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis (U.S. Department of Transportation, 2017) saw California drop to second place in the year 2015. However, 70% of cyclists who died in a bicycle accident during a traffic collision were in an urban area, like San Francisco or San Luis Obispo. There is an average of four fatalities for cyclists in San Francisco each year (DataSF, 2017). The number of collisions without a fatality can be harder to determine when not everyone reports them, but if you ride in an urban area like San Francisco or San Luis Obispo, it wouldn’t hurt to have our number saved in your phone. We are here to help you as one of California’s leading bicycle accident law firms.
