Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Columbus, Ohio

Because bicycles are smaller and narrower than other vehicles and less common on the road, and larger vehicles can obstruct their view, motorists find bikes more challenging to spot.

While there are many ways negligent drivers can get into wrecks with bicycles, these are some of the most common:

For over two decades, our Columbus bicycle accident attorneys have represented Ohio injury victims after negligence has turned their lives upside down. Unfortunately, because bicyclists are exceptionally vulnerable during crashes, their accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries.

This is why we are here.

Understanding The Rules of The Road for Bicyclists in Columbus

Below are some safe riding tips based on Ohio traffic laws.
