Cycling Injury Claim in Gretna


A lot of accidents happen between cars and bicycles, but there are things that drivers can do to help avoid tragedy. Below are some tips to help cyclists stay safe:

Check blind spots

Among the most common types of accidents with bicycles happens when motorists changes lanes or merges without looking for any cyclists. Bicycles are a lot smaller and a lot more difficult to see than another vehicle, which means are able to hide in the blind spots a lot more easily. One of the best ways that you can avoid accidents and a cycling injury claim in Gretna, is to check the blind spots. Checking blind spots will help make sure that you see everything that you need to see.

Be patient

A lot of drivers get frustrated when they find that they’re behind a bicycle and they’re on a very narrow road. But what most drivers fail to remember is that bicyclists have the same kinds of rights as motorists do on most of the roadways and streets. Even more importantly, someone riding a bicycle is going to be a lot more vulnerable to becoming seriously injured if there’s an accident. So give the bicyclists enough room so that they stay safe and you avoid an accident and a cycling injury claim in Gretna.

Keep bike lanes open

The bike lanes are generally created in the spots where there is usually a lot of bicycle traffic. They were created to make the driving conditions a lot safer for the cyclists and much more convenient when it comes to drivers. Blocking the bike lanes forces the cyclist to move into the general traffic area where the vehicles aren’t expecting them and where there’s going to be an increased risk for the accident. So give the bicyclists enough room and don’t block their lanes.

Be careful when passing

A lot of the crashes between bicycles and cars come about because the bicyclist gets clipped by cars who are attempting to go past them. If you want to pass the cyclists, it’s a better idea to make sure that you have enough room so that you don’t have to worry about hitting the cyclist. If you’re not sure whether or not you have enough room, it’s a better idea to wait for another opportunity to pass them. Yes, you may have to wait a little bit longer, but if you have an accident, you’re going to be even later than if you had waited to pass them.
