Bicycle accidents cause untold pain and suffering to innocent victims. Accidents can take many forms and have numerous causes. Accidents and injuries may involve motor vehicles, defective roads, or unsafe equipment. Bicycle accidents involve a large number of head injuries. Thousands of bicyclists are injured or killed in crashes with motor vehicles. Many are younger than 16 years old accounted for a large percentage of those seriously injured. Each year over 150,000 children get treatment in hospital emergency departments for bicycle-related head injuries.

Larry King Law helps victims of serious bicycle accident injuries. Our bicycle accident lawyers encourage the proper use of approved bicycle helmets. There are states and local laws requiring the use of helmets, particularly for young riders. See also Brain Injury Handbook.

If you or a loved one are injured in a bicycle accident, there are a number of important factual and legal issues that you should take into consideration:

- Was alcohol involved?
- Was the bicycle defective?
- Were there any road defects?
- Was the helmet properly fitted?
- Did the helmet properly function?
- Was the bicycle properly maintained?
- Did the straps and buckles work properly?
- Did the accident involve a motor vehicle?
- What time of day did the accident happen?
- Were all rules of the road being observed?
- Was the bicycle owned, rented or borrowed?
- Was a young child permitted to ride in the street?
- Did the bicycle helmet meet the safety standards?
- Did the supervisor allow the child to ride without a helmet?
- Has the injured person been properly evaluated for head injury?
- Was an improper helmet sold by a seller with advertised expertise?

It is important that all bicycle injuries be evaluated by an experienced legal team. Complex legal and medical issues may be involved. If you, a friend, or loved one are injured on a bicycle, you should take immediate steps to protect your or their interest. Do not compromise your rights by making statements to the press, insurance investigators, potential defendants, or their representatives.

Understanding Bicycle Accident Laws in Virginia

When it comes to bicycle accidents, it's important to understand the laws that apply in the state of Virginia. Knowing your rights and responsibilities as a cyclist can help protect you in case of an accident. Here are some key points to keep in mind:

  1. Helmet laws: In Virginia, cyclists under the age of 14 are required to wear a helmet. While it's not mandatory for adults, wearing a helmet is strongly recommended for safety.
  2. Right-of-way: Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. This means that they must follow traffic laws, including yielding the right-of-way when necessary.
  3. Bike lanes: Virginia law requires motorists to give at least three feet of space when passing a cyclist. Additionally, cyclists are encouraged to use designated bike lanes whenever possible.
  4. Reporting accidents: If you're involved in a bicycle accident that results in injury, death, or property damage of $1,500 or more, you must report the incident to the local police department within 24 hours.
