Columbus Bicycle & Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Common Causes of Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents

While bicycle riders and pedestrians have the right of way, they are often treated as second-class citizens on the road. In fact, based on the recent data from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in Georgia, over 15% of road fatalities in the state involved a bicycle or a pedestrian. Most often than not, these accidents were caused by negligent drivers on the road.

Some of these negligent acts or reckless behavior include:

  • Distracted driving including texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Not following traffic signals or stop signs
  • Failing to yield the right of way to bicycles and pedestrians at crosswalks
  • Failing to signal when turning
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other intoxicating substances
