Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents cause 90% of bike accident deaths and are the most likely to result in catastrophic injury, simply because they are larger, heavier, and faster than a bicycle. Additionally, cyclists do not have as much protection as someone inside a car.

Some of the most common causes of collisions are:

  • A motor vehicle cuts off a bicycle when entering the roadway.
  • A motor vehicle makes a right turn and cuts off someone cycling straight in the bike lane.
  • A motor vehicle rear-ends a bike trying to maneuver around a car parked in the bike lane.
  • A driver of a parked car, truck, or van opens a door in the path of a bicycler.
  • The cyclist is riding on the wrong side of the road, against oncoming traffic.
  • A motorist or a bike rider runs a stoplight or stop sign.
  • The cyclist makes an unpredictable or hazardous move.


Other bicycle injury causes are:

  • A cyclist falls off the bike due to a poorly-maintained roadway.
  • The bicycle is defective, damaged, or poorly repaired.
  • A cyclist falls off the bike due to an animal attack.
  • A cyclist collides with a pedestrian or another cyclist.
  • A cyclist falls off the bike due to loss of balance or inebriation.
  • A cyclist collides with an object, such as debris in the road, a curb, or tree
