The Risks and Hazards of Cycling

For exercise, recreation, and transportation, an increasing number of Americans are adopting an old school method of transportation to solve their newfound transit and health concerns: riding a bike. Today, worldwide bicycle ownership exceeds 1 billion.


One problem with riding a bicycle is that cyclists must share the road with drivers – even when drivers aren’t particularly interested in sharing the road with cyclists. Another issue is that bicycle frames, tires, and wheels commonly have defects, causing serious, sometimes catastrophic crashes.


Tragically, the combination of traffic accidents and product defects causes hundreds of thousands of injuries and hundreds of deaths every year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that almost 1,000 people die every year in bicycle accidents and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that hospital emergency rooms treat 500,000 people annually.


Victims should recognize not only that accidents happen frequently but that they can be the basis of important, life-changing litigation. In the case of automobile-bicycle accidents, victims’ lawsuits can provide meaningful restitution for injured cyclists. In the event of product defects, they can hold careless manufacturers accountable and send a message to other bike product designers that carelessness will not be tolerated.
