Bicycle Accidents

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Biking is a great way to get around. Whenever you’re on your bike, you are able to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery, get in some exercise, and help reduce your carbon footprint, but you’re also far more vulnerable to the impact of a traffic accident. If you’ve been injured in a bike accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, seek the professional legal counsel of an experienced Lynnwood, Washington, bicycle accident attorney.

The Statistics

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) shares the following sobering statistics related to bike accidents in the United States:

  • Bicyclists make up about two percent of the total number of traffic accidents.
  • Since 1975, bicyclist fatalities have tripled for those who are 20 years old and older.
  • In a recent year, there were 854 bike fatalities, which is a seven percent increase over the number of bike deaths the previous year.

When riding a bicycle, you’re far more vulnerable to the dangers of the road and should always put safety first.

Bicyclists’ Unique Vulnerabilities

Cyclists are uniquely vulnerable to driver negligence in all of the following ways:

  • You take up far less space on the road, which makes it more difficult for others to see you and makes it far easier for you to disappear in motorists’ blind spots.
  • You share the road with other vehicles, but you aren’t able to keep up with their speed, and you have far less weight behind you. This means that if traffic changes suddenly, your options are limited.
  • Only your helmet comes between you and the life-threatening impact of a traffic accident.

Negligent Drivers Endanger Bicyclists

When you are riding in or near the flow of traffic, you are extremely vulnerable to the negligence of motorists who share the road with you. Driver negligence can take many deadly forms, including:

  • Distraction – When a motorist is distracted, he or she is far less likely to see bicyclists on the road. When the distraction involved is texting, the situation becomes that much direr.
  • Impairment – Alcohol plays far too significant a role in dangerous traffic accidents, and impaired drivers are far more likely to cause bike accidents.
  • Exhaustion – Drowsy drivers have a difficult time concentrating, which makes them dangerous drivers.
  • Speed – When motorists speed excessively, they have less time to react safely to bicyclists in their midst, which makes bike accidents more likely and more likely to be deadly.

No matter how safe of a cyclist you might be, you cannot control the actions of drivers who might cause a crash.

What Our Clients Say

The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!

Dale W.

Amazing! From the moment I retained Napier & George I breathed a sigh of relief. From that moment on I didn’t have to worry about insurance people calling me trying to rush me into settling early or trying to convince me that I was better. I could focus on me. When I told providers who was representing me they even said you have the best in the business. Quite the contrast in when I told them who my PIP provider was. If you want peace of mind go with Napier & George.

Y’all took incredible care of me.

My endless gratitude goes out to y’all and everyone else in the office too!
