Because May 10 is National Bike to School Day, expect to see more young cyclists out on the road. And since we know you don’t want to crash into any kid cyclists (then have to deal with our Bullhead City bike accident lawyers), here are a few tips to help ensure you drive around them safely...

5 THINGS YOU DO TO CYCLISTS YOU HAD NO IDEA ARE ILLEGAL

It’s important to know that cyclists are using the same road as you. They do it because it’s their right to do so, it’s perfectly legal, and that’s the safe place to do it. Drivers get frustrated with cyclists, but most of the time are completely unaware that they’re the ones breaking the law. Go here to learn more about your driving behaviors that may be against the law.

QUIZ: WHO IS AT FAULT IN THIS BICYCLE ACCIDENT?

In the case of a bicycle accident, it’s not always as cut-and-dry as one would think.

We came across this video of a cycling accident that took place in London, just about a year ago. Since it’s in the UK, the roads are backwards from what we’re used to, so you’ll have to correct for that.

Watch the video of the accident, and see if you can tell who is at fault.

Statistics on bicycle crashes show the importance of wearing this... this one little accessory!

No drum roll needed, folks. It's obvious that you should wear a helmet every time you get on your bicycle. Even if it's not the law, which is the case in Washington as well as many cities like Bellingham. Read up on recent crash statistics and a guide to buy the right helmet here.

A helmet might not protect you from this if you're hit by a car

Though the technology and design improves more and more with each year, bicycle helmets can't always protect bicyclists from TBI. If you've hit your head in a bike crash, know the signs and symptoms of this all too common problem, from this post by bike accident attorney Bill Coats Law in Bellingham WA.

Traumatic Brain Injuries are not uncommon for bicyclists hit by cars

Riding a bike offers little protection between rider and the environment. If you are on your bike and are hit by a vehicle, or your crash was caused by some factor beyond your control, you are likely dealing with a lot of injuries. In a collision between a bike and a car, the injuries a bike rider receives are almost always far worse than what the driver walks away with, especially if the cyclist’s head takes the impact of the hit. If you have a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) after a bike crash, you will likely face a lot of financial problems in addition to the strain of healing from trauma. Don’t let the stress convince you that you have no options and must go it alone. You do have options for compensation for your losses and financial trouble, and are not alone in fighting the insurance companies to get full, fair, and fast compensation after your accident.
