Bike Accident Victims Can Seek Compensation
As a bicyclist who follows the rules of the road, you shouldn’t have to fear for your life from drivers who do not. Unfortunately, many cars and trucks in Connecticut do not respect the rights of bikers.
For more than two decades, the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke in Bridgeport has held careless drivers accountable when they injure or kill pedestrians and bicyclists. We know the pain your family is going through, and we are fully equipped to help you pursue justice. With offices in Stratford, Shelton , our attorneys represent clients throughout the Greater Bridgeport area.
Hold Careless Drivers Accountable For The Damage They Cause
Bicyclists have the same rights on the roadway as drivers of four-wheel vehicles. Bicyclists are required to drive in the same direction as traffic and stay as close to the right side of the roadway as possible except when passing, going around obstacles or turning left. Accidents usually involve drivers who:
- Fail to provide enough clearance when passing bicycles
- Fail to yield to bicyclists at intersections
- Swerve into a lane occupied by a bicyclist
- Door bicyclists when getting out of parked cars
The sooner you contact our attorneys after a bike accident, the sooner we will go to work for you, collecting and preserving evidence of liability. We are committed to helping you obtain the maximum compensation for the damages you have suffered.
