What If My Bicycle Accident Was Caused by Road Conditions?


Sadly, bicyclists are the least respected individuals on the road. Drivers, pedestrians, and motorists all tend to discount people on bikes as an annoying nuisance, and this negligence can often lead to dangerous accidents. However, what happens when your bicycle accident is not because of a specific individual but is actually the result of hazardous road conditions? When this happens, injured bicyclists are often at a loss of how to proceed.

Despite their many environmental, financial, and health benefits, bicycles are not durable or protective in the face of an accident. While cars and trucks have airbags, seatbelts, and plenty of metal to cushion the impact of a crash, bicyclists are exposed to the elements—resulting in extremely serious injuries and consequences. Just as all motorists and drivers must uphold safety standards to ensure the roads are hazard-free, the government must also uphold its responsibility to keep citizens out of harm’s way. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident as a result of a poorly maintained road, the city may be held liable for failing to prevent this incident.

The following dangerous conditions are commonly responsible for bicycle accidents, including:

  • Uneven roads
  • Potholes
  • Poor landscaping
  • Faulty designs
  • Lack of maintenance
  • Inadequate road markings
  • Damaged, hidden, or confusing street signs
  • Construction
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Road debris
