Cyclists and pedestrians can be injured for a number of reasons, including:
- Drivers failing to yield in crosswalks
- Drivers failing to adhere to posted safety signs and signals
- Drivers not giving enough room for bicyclists riding alongside them
- Drivers leaving a parking lot or parking garage without ensuring that the sidewalk is clear
- Drivers turning right on a red light without ensuring the safety of those cycling or crossing the street
- Distracted drivers
- Drunk drivers
Due to the lack of protection and the size and speed of the vehicles involved, both bicyclists and pedestrians tend to suffer significant injuries as a result of these accidents. Multiple fractures, knee damage, spinal cord injuries, head and neck injuries, and severe tendon and ligament damage are typically suffered. These injuries might require multiple doctor visits, hospital stays and lengthy physical rehabilitation. Medical treatments are costly, and can quickly land an injured individual in financial peril.
