Fighting for Bicycle Accident Victims

St. Louis Bicycle Accidents Attorney

Cycling Accident Statistics

According to statistics published by the Missouri Department of Public Safety, there were a total of 664 reported bicycle accidents statewide in 2011, with 560 cases of injury and one death. Bike accidents accounted for 0.46% of all reported motor vehicle collisions throughout the state, and one person was injured or killed in a bicycle crash every 15.1 hours.

Two main causes combined to account for approximately three-quarters of all bicycle accidents: failure to yield (39.6%) and driver inattention (32.7%). The next most common causes were running a stop sign, improper lane use, and unsafe lane changes.

Liability in a Bike Accident

When we represent a client who has been injured or has lost a loved one in a bicycle accident, we work diligently to investigate the case and discover the necessary evidence to support our client's claim for damages. While cyclists are sometimes responsible for causing collisions with automobiles, it can frequently be proven that it was the driver who was at fault. After all, cyclists tend to ride defensively.

They have very little protection in the event of a crash and will typically do everything they can to avoid an accident. Drivers, on the other hand, are frequently distracted by the radio, a cell phone, or by general inattention and often fail to notice a cyclist riding in the bike lane or at an intersection.

Contact us at Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC as soon as possible after a bicycle accident.

We have more than a century of combined experience and our attorneys have a proven track record of success in recovering compensation for our clients. We can investigate the accident to find evidence to prove that the driver is at fault and will negotiate on your behalf with the insurance company over the value of your claim, even going to court if necessary to recover the amount you deserve.

Let us put our skill and experience to work for you! Call our firm at (800) 391-4318 today or use our online contact form.
