KaplunMarx - The Experienced Bicycle Accident Legal Team
Motorists are required to observe the same driving rules when sharing the road with bicyclists as they do with other vehicles. However, a driver may fail to uphold their legal obligation to drive safely and with reasonable care. If this happens and a bicyclist is in the driver’s path, a catastrophic accident can occur. Our bicycle accident lawyers can give you your best chance for financial recovery if you have sustained injuries in a bike wreck.
A personal injury attorney with a thorough understanding of the laws governing your potential claim could evaluate your accident to determine whether you might be owed damages. We fight relentlessly on your behalf to win the most possible compensation for your financial, physical, and emotional harm.

Common Causes of Bicycle Wrecks in Bala Cynwyd
While bicycle accidents can happen for several reasons, the most common cause is human error. A negligent motorist could strike a cyclist by:
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Talking on the phone while driving
- Night driving with poor night vision (more common than you may think)
- Driving fatigued
- Texting while driving
- Driving at excessive speeds
- Failing to properly share the road with a bicyclist
Other factors that can lead to a serious crash between a car and a bicyclist include improper lane changes, careless driving, following too closely, failing to leave sufficient space when overtaking a cyclist, and disobeying posted traffic signs and signals.
When a driver does not meet their legal duty and fails to operate their vehicle in a reasonably safe manner, they could be liable if they negligently hit and injure a bicyclist. Our Bala Cynwyd accident team can evaluate the factors involved in an injured cyclist’s case and work hard to prove the liability of the negligent party or parties.
What Compensation is Available to Injured Cyclists in Pennsylvania?
Bicycle crashes can result in catastrophic harm such as burns, amputations, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. Due to the high exposure of bikers, a collision between a cyclist and a vehicle often results in significant monetary losses, in addition to emotional and physical trauma.
Our attorney team will spare no effort in seeking full compensation for someone’s monetary losses from a bicycle collision. An injured cyclist may be entitled to damages for lost wages, hospital bills, surgery costs, medication expenses, doctor’s appointments, physical therapy, and other economic losses incurred as a result of the wreck. An experienced attorney could also help a cyclist injured in a crash pursue monetary compensation for their non-economic losses, such as future wage loss, emotional anguish, scarring, disfigurement, pain, and suffering damages.
Statutory Requirements to File a Civil Claim in Pennsylvania
42 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 5524 limits the amount of time a claimant could seek financial compensation. In the context of a bicycle crash claim, the cyclist may have up to two years from the date the negligent driver injures them to pursue a legal remedy.
