Phoenix Lawyers Repesenting Victims of Bicycle Intersection Accidents
Bike Collision at an Intersection
Biking means sometimes having to negotiate large lanes of traffic. No matter where you may choose to ride in Arizona, you'll need to cross an intersection or two. Depending on the time of day and where it is located, these crossroads can be rather perilous, for even the most experienced rider. Reckless drivers, speeding motorcyclists and oversized trucks are just some of the dangers found in these spots. In fact, many motorists choose to engage in dangerous behavior when entering an intersection, such as:
- Texting while driving
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Road rage
Such behind-the-wheel activities can create havoc in a busy intersection and lead to serious injury or death. When this happens, the responsible party can be held liable for their actions in civil court. If you or a loved one were involved in an intersection collision, while biking, you too may have grounds to pursue legal action. But in order to obtain the full and fair amount of compensation, you'll need an experienced Phoenix bike accident lawyer. Fortunately, the Breyer Law Offices, P.C. have been helping individuals just like you secure the damages they were owed for decades.

What Are Some Common Injuries Suffered in Intersection Accidents?
As mentioned before, intersection accidents have the potential to be deadly. This is primarily due to the fact that people – both motorist and pedestrian alike – can be caught off guard by another person's negligence. While everyone else at a particular intersection may be obeying the rules and safely making their way through, one negligent individual may not. As a result, they can catch people by surprise with sudden bursts of speed, failing to recognize a stoplight or ignoring a blind spot. Because of this, the injuries people suffer – cyclists in particular – can be extensive.
Some of the more common bike accident injuries and damages suffered following an intersection accident often include:
- Traumatic head, neck and spinal damage
- Internal organ damage and failure
- Deep lacerations and abrasions
- Amputations and paralysis
- Pain and suffering
When Should I Contact a Bike Intersection Accident Attorney in Phoenix?
If you've been involved in a bike accident – whether at an intersection or elsewhere – time is of the essence. The sooner you are able to speak with a member or our personal injury team, the better. Evidence can be lost, memories fade and witnesses can move away. In addition, Arizona courts maintain a statute of limitations on all civil claims. This means, if you fail to file by a certain time, you may lose all right to compensation. Don't lose out the recovery you deserve.
