UTAH BICYCLE LAW FIRM

Bicycling is one of the most popular sports in America. Its health benefits are second to none and it provides a unique opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, often in the company of friends and relatives. But thousands of bicyclists are injured every year through no fault of their own including many in Utah. Bicyclists are often at the mercy of motorists who are violating rules of the road, including speeding; driving while distracted; driving under the influence; or texting. When other drivers violate rules of the road, the consequences can be catastrophic for bicyclists. Bicyclists often suffer catastrophic injuries when hit by motorists, including traumatic brain injuries; spinal cord injuries; broken bones; fractures; and road rash. As such, bicycle accidents can dramatically change lives in an instant. In addition, the costs of treating bicycle accident victims are often astronomical, especially when the victims are unable to return to work through no fault of their own. Because bicycle accident injuries are often catastrophic, bicycle accident victims should be represented by a skilled bicycle accident lawyer who will fight for their rights.

Utah law protects bicyclists. Utah Code Annotated Section 41-61-706.5 provides that the operator of a motor vehicle may not operate a vehicle within three feet of a moving bicycle. In addition, Utah law considers bicycles as “vehicles,” meaning that other motorists are required to look out for bicyclists and respect their space on the road. Utah law also requires motorists to give adequate signals to bicyclists when turning or changing lanes. Utah law also prohibits motorists and bicyclists alike from stopping or suddenly decreasing speed without first giving an appropriate signal to the motorist or bicyclist following in the rear. These laws are designed to protect bicyclists from motorists.

PROTECTING UTAH BICYCLISTS

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, contact a Utah bicycle lawyer immediately to protect your rights. Time matters. Insurance companies know you are in a vulnerable position and often seek to take advantage of that fact. They may attempt to interview you to secure admissions helpful to their case or they may persuade you accept a quick, lowball settlement offer before you are able to retain an attorney. An experienced Utah personal injury attorney will protect you against these insurance company tactics, among many others, and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
