Common Causes of Orlando Bike Accidents

Bicycle traffic has increased throughout the United States over the years, especially in Florida, and yet many drivers still show inattention or latent hostility toward bike riders. Even when wearing a helmet and the head strikes a surface, receives a sudden jerk, or is penetrated by a foreign object, the risk of a devastating traumatic brain injury (TBI) is very real. Cyclists have very little chance against a passenger car, van, or truck. The more common causes of bicycle accidents include the following:

  • Negligent car or truck driver:
    • Turning directly in front of bicyclist
    • Pulling into traffic in front of the bicyclist
    • Failing to yield at an intersection
    • Running a stop sign or red light
    • Failing to look both ways after a stop sign
    • Ignoring blind spots
    • Opening a car door
    • Speeding
    • Driving under the influence
    • Improperly maintaining the vehicle
  • Vehicle manufacturer defect – Brakes, forks, handlebars, frames, seat posts
  • Hazardous road conditions – Oil, gravel, potholes, uneven pavement, ice, low curbing, uncovered manholes, unlit road medians, speed bumps
  • Helmet, accessory defect – Crack or break on impact
  • Limited visibility – Intersections, buildings, parked vehicles, trees, shrubbery, blind corners
