Common Causes of Bike Accidents

Some of the common causes of bike accidents in Georgia are:

  • A driver failing to look both ways before pulling out of a parking lot, side street, or driveway
  • A driver failing to look before opening their car door when they are parked on a street
  • A driver failing to yield to a cyclist in a crosswalk
  • A driver attempting to make a right turn while a cyclist is sharing the lane
  • A driver rear-ending a cyclist

If you have been involved in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. The first step is to seek experienced legal representation. Our legal team can advise you of your rights in the event of an unwarranted injury and can investigate the validity of your case.

Our firm was able to secure an $80,000.00 settlement for an injured mountain biker whose repair shop used incorrect parts, which caused a malfunction while riding. View more case results to see how we fight for our clients.

Georgia's "Share the Road" Campaign for Bicycle Safety

Georgia Share the Road campaignThe Georgia Department of Transportation participates in a campaign called "Share the Road" which promotes bicycle safety. When motorists and bicyclists share the road, serious accidents can be avoided. The "Share the Road" campaign aims to spread awareness of bicycle traffic laws and inform both bicyclists and motorists of the rules of the road. Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. is a proud supporter of the "Share the Road" campaign.

Georgia Bicycle Safety Laws

Cyclists have all the same rights and privileges as motorists in the state of Georgia. There are also some additional traffic laws that both motorists and cyclists must abide by. Some include:

  • § 40-6-397 forbids motorists from harassing cyclists
  • The 3-feet rule asks motorists to allow at least three feet between their vehicle and the bicycle when passing
  • In many areas, it is illegal for cyclists to ride on sidewalks. See Atlanta's Sidewalk Ordinance (Sec. 150-210) for more information
  • § 40-6-294(a) requires cyclists to ride as far to the right of the roadway as possible except when turning left or avoiding hazards in the road
  • Bicyclists should steer clear of parked cars to avoid "dooring" accidents
