Cyclists are not protected by the police in court when they are involved in an accident with a car or truck
Unfortunately, too often, cyclists die and are seriously injured when they are involved in a fatal or near-fatal accident with a car or truck. We always hear the excuse of the driver that he did not see the cyclist. The police accept this excuse too readily. What then happens is there is no prosecution when there should be, and insurance companies, usually, use the incorrect police report as a basis to deny our clients’ injury claims. In this situation, we litigate the case and ultimately convince everyone that our client was indeed not at fault just because the police were blind or prejudiced against bicyclists.
As bicycle lawyers, we are always fighting America’s car culture that does not expect the motorist to foresee that the roads might be occupied by cyclists. That needs to change. As bicycle injury lawyers, we demand that this misguided culture changes.
We have written to the Department of Transportation(DOT) requesting they create more public awareness to change America’s car culture: which is not based in reality and denies cyclists’ their rights. There is no question that the law does not do enough to protect cyclists. All too often, the police fail to collect enough evidence at the scene cases of death or involuntary manslaughter. We need harsher criminal penalties and harsher maximum sentences for dangerous driving in cases where a motorist injuries or kills a cyclist.
