Tucson Bicycle Accident Attorney

Biking to Work or School Shouldn’t Put Your Life at Risk

Drivers know that they should look out for bicycles, especially near the University of Arizona or in other areas where people frequently ride bikes. And yet, negligent drivers continue to cause serious and fatal bicycle accidents by ignoring crosswalks, turning right on red lights without checking for bikes and generally behaving as if they own the road.

When a careless driver causes a bicycle accident resulting in serious or fatal rider injury, the team of legal professionals at The Hameroff Law Firm in Tucson is here to fight for civil justice and maximum financial compensation in a personal injury or wrongful death claim or lawsuit.

Drivers of motor vehicles are quick to come up with excuses: The bike came out of nowhere … she was riding the wrong way … he ignored the stop sign. We don’t let such statements go unchallenged when automobile drivers try to explain why they think they aren’t responsible for a serious or fatal bicycle accident.

Maybe these drivers don’t realize that Arizona is what is known as a comparative negligence state. This means that even if a bike rider was doing something wrong before the crash — riding on the sidewalk, for example — the automobile driver still had an obligation to exercise caution and may still be held at least partially liable to pay damages under the law.
