Each year over $7,000,000 is spent in Utah on medical treatment for bicyclists injured in accidents with motor vehicles. Whether you commute on two wheels, or just enjoy going for a ride on the weekends, you have probably had to deal with a close call involving distracted or negligent drivers. At Handy & Handy we represent injured bicyclists and help those individuals protect their rights following an auto-bicycle accident.
Many bicycle accidents are caused by drivers, especially distracted drivers. When an automobile or truck weighing thousands of pounds strikes an exposed person on a bicycle, serious injuries and possibly death can occur.
Bicycle accident laws in Utah can be complex. For example, many bicyclists and their families believe that they can only make a claim if they were struck by the car. This is not true. If you were run off the road, or were in an accident caused by a motorist, even if he did not hit you, you may still have a claim.
