Cycling AccidentsJeff herman

Law: A cyclist crossing a street in a crosswalk has the same legal rights as a pedestrian, even if riding across the crosswalk.  A cyclist on the road has the same rights and duties as a driver, including the duty to stop for pedestrians at a crosswalk, stop sign, or red light.

Safety Tips: Please be VISIBLE.  Use lights and reflectors at all times, even in daylight.   And please, wear a helmet, and replace it if it is damaged in an accident.

Sample Recoveries:

A cyclist who was hit in a crosswalk on the Burke-Gilman trail suffering an eye socket fracture requiring surgery: $100,000 (the limit of all available insurance policies).

A cyclist who was hit from behind at a stop sign by a driver suffering from senile dementia, sustaining a shoulder blade fracture and concussion: $115,000.

A cyclist who was hit by another cyclist sustaining a collarbone fracture requiring surgery with good result: $75,000.
