Securing Compensation for Phoenix Bicycle Accident Injuries

Despite the many benefits of cycling, bicyclists are some of the most vulnerable people. Far too many motorists don’t share the roadways safely with cyclists, causing devastating bicycle accidents that occur daily in our city and throughout our state. Tragically, many of these crashes lead to cyclists suffering catastrophic injuries or losing their lives.

Some common injuries sustained in bicycle accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations

To make matters worse, most of the time cyclists aren’t at fault for their accidents. Instead, negligent drivers, who usually walk away from these types of collisions unscathed, are generally to blame.

Understanding Bicycle Accident Causes in Phoenix

Bicycle accidents happen for a wide range of reasons. Sometimes bike crashes are the cyclist’s fault. However, many bike crashes are caused by car or truck drivers who engage in negligent behavior.

Some reasons that bicyclists are hit by motor vehicles involve:

  • Distracted driving (texting and driving)
  • Drugged and drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Failing to pay attention while driving
  • Opening doors without looking and hitting passing cyclists
  • Making unsafe turns
  • Failing to yield the right of way to cyclists
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Entering traffic from a driveway, parking spot, or parking lot without looking and hitting cyclists or cutting off cyclists
  • Driving in the bike lane
  • Driving aggressively/recklessly
  • Making unsafe lane changes
  • Making a sudden stop in front of a cyclist without giving the cyclist enough room/time to stop safely

How Long Do I Have To File A Bicycle Accident Claim in Arizona?

In Arizona, the statute of limitations for filing a bicycle accident claim is generally two years from the date of the accident. This means you have two years to initiate legal action; otherwise, you may forfeit your right to seek compensation. Understanding and adhering to this deadline is crucial for protecting your legal rights.

While two years might seem like ample time, the sooner you consult with bike accident attorneys in Phoenix, the better. Early intervention allows your attorney to gather critical evidence, interview witnesses while their memories are fresh, and build a robust case on your behalf.

There are some exceptions to the two-year rule that could shorten or extend the timeframe. For example, if your injury was not immediately apparent, the "discovery rule" might apply, allowing you to file within two years of discovering your injury. Conversely, if a government entity is involved, such as if a city vehicle caused the accident, you may have as little as 180 days to file a notice of claim.
