Bicyclists are unique in their vulnerability during auto accidents. In most major cities in Arizona, bicyclists have to ride in the road alongside motor vehicles, not on sidewalks. This puts them in frequent contact with passenger cars. In 2019, Arizona had 1,275 reported pedalcycle accidents. Unfortunately, many of these accidents caused serious and fatal injuries to the cyclist. With no protective shells surrounding them, bicyclists are extremely prone to injuries in collisions.
Despite a prudent bicyclist’s best attempts at avoiding an accident, a negligent driver could cause a collision and life-changing injuries for the victim.
