"Not an accident in the making" - Really?

Another bicyclist killed in downtown Seattle

Seattle bicyclist dies in collision with semi

With warmer weather on its way there are more bicyclists on the roads. Many people see cycling to work as a healthier alternative to driving. In Seattle it is even Bike to Work month with many people cycling their way to their jobs instead of using other means. With more cyclists sharing the road the chance of a car accident is also higher.

Fault finding can be critical in Washington bike accidents

Even though Washington state law treats bicycles and motor vehicles as equals with respect to traffic laws, Seattle residents probably recognize a certain degree of tension when it comes to sharing the road. That tension comes to the forefront in the aftermath of any car accident involving a bicyclist. More often than not, the central issue in litigation over accident-related damages turns out to be a determination of who is at fault.

Seattle bicyclist goes for coffee after being hit by public bus

Seattle residents have a reputation for loving their coffee. On January 8, a local 32-year-old may have helped solidify that reputation by making a nearby coffee shop his first stop after being hit by a bus while trying to cross Third Avenue on his bicycle.

Hit-and-run dump truck seriously injures Seattle bicyclist

Washington law treats bicycles as legal road vehicles and confers upon bicyclists all the same rights and responsibilities that apply to drivers of motor vehicles. Unfortunately, as Seattle area cyclists probably know, drivers often fail to give bicyclists the same right of way as they would other vehicles and sometimes simply lack awareness of bicyclists with whom they must share the road.

Just to reiterate: Helmets save bicyclists' lives

If Seattle residents listen to the news every day, they are bound to hear about tragic bicycle accidents that result in serious injury and death. For instance, in Boston, a 37-year-old woman was recently crushed under a semi truck; a 63-year-old woman was killed when someone speeding in a pickup truck hit her; and a 41-year-old man was hit in one of the city's suburbs and the driver left the scene. All of these bicycle accidents happened within the last two months, and two of the crashes happened in the same week.
