When a cyclist is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, it is usually the cyclist (not the driver of the car) who suffers the most serious injuries. At the very least, a cyclist hit by a car, truck, motorcycle, bus or train will usually suffer cuts and bruises. However, many cyclists hit by a motor vehicle suffer devastating injuries. Tragically, many cyclists die as a result of the injuries sustained in a bicycle accident.

Although more motor vehicle drivers tragically die each year in collisions, cyclists’ death rate is the highest among road users. According to Alberta bicycle accident statistics (1998 – 2011):
- Bicycle accidents occur primarily during the summer
- More than 62 percent of bicycle accidents occurred in urban areas
- Accidents involving a cyclist and a motor vehicle accounted for more than 67 percent of all bicycle accidents
- Approximately 87 percent of individuals who tragically died in bicycle accidents were male

Two years can pass quickly when litigating complex injury cases, so don’t wait to contact us. Why wait to act if it could jeopardize your ability to get compensation for medical costs (doctor visits, hospital stays, surgeries, medicine), lost wages (due to the inability to work), and pain and suffering (physical and emotional)?
