Risk Factors Related to Bicycle Accidents

The majority of people ride bicycles for health/exercise reasons and recreation rather than out of necessity as a means of transportation. You should be aware of bicycle accident risks and, if involved in a bicycle accident, consult an attorney who can help protect your rights.

According to BikeSafe, the most common bike accident scenes for bike-motor vehicle crashes are:

  • Local streets (sites of 33 percent of accidents)
  • Intersections (sites of 50 percent of accidents)
  • Roads with posted speed limits of 35 or less (sites of 75 percent of accidents)

The age group with the highest injury and fatality rates are youth between the ages of 10 to 15. In this group, accidents are most prevalent when bikers ride out from driveways and intersections, swerveleft and right or ride in the wrong direction. An interesting comparison is the lower crash and fatalityrates for bikers aged 65 and over and the fact that they ride in safer locations and at safer times of day.Urban areas are the most dangerous sites for bicyclists and the months of June, July, and August see the highest number of accidents (35 percent). Because 31 percent of bicycle fatalities occur between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., you can conclude these are the worst times of day to ride bicycles in terms of safety. More than one-third of bicycle-motor vehicle crashes involved driving under the influence of alcohol, which included bicyclists and motorists.

He was upfront and honest about how the process works and never made any promises or raised my expectations. Evan understood that my first priority was to take care of the medical expenses that I incurred and he completely delivered. Communication is essential and I spoke directly with him and was never pawned off to another person. Bottom line - Evan Kaine gives lawyers a good name." - M.T. Atlanta, GA

Very knowledgeable and thorough, always examining my case from every angle. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so. Overall great legal service." - B.S. Roswell, GA

  • "My boyfriend Michael was hit by a drunk driver while he was driving my car. Even though I wasn't involved in the accident, Evan made every effort to make the process of getting my new car painless for me.

I would highly recommend Evan Kaine! " - B.D. Atlanta, GA

I highly recommend Attorney Evan Kaine." - G.S., Smyrna, Georgia

  • "To everyone LIKE ME who has had to deal with attorneys AND has that bad taste in their mouth because they have been taken advantage of because their lawyers are more interested in making money and not caring about YOU, well please allow me to introduce you to Evan Kaine.
