Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Missouri
Bicycle accidents can occur for a number of reasons. Because cars, buses, and trucks are much larger than bicycles, and because bicycles cover much less of the rider, a car accident involving a bicyclist can cause serious injuries and, in the worst cases, death.
Below is a list of some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents:
- A driver is distracted cognitively or physically
- A driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol
- A driver changes lanes without looking first
- A driver fails to give the bicyclist the right of way
- A driver turns into the path of the bicyclist
Proving Fault in Your Bicycle Accident Case
One of the most important elements in a bicycle injury case is determining who was at fault and therefore who is liable for your injuries. Unfortunately, this isn't always easy to prove. In Missouri, comparative negligence laws may prevent you from recovering any compensation if you are found to be 50% or more at fault for the accident.
In order to help you receive maximum compensation, our Kansas City bicycle accident lawyers utilize all our resources to help prove your claim, including:
- The police report
- Testimony from witnesses
- Accident scene photographs
- Accident reconstruction
- Medical experts
You can count on our firm to do whatever it takes to secure a favorable result for your case and get you the money you deserve.

At Klenofsky Law Firm, we believe that everyone deserves the chance to seek justice—regardless of their financial situation. This is why we offer our services on a contingency fee basis. To put it simply: You don’t pay unless we recover compensation on your behalf. We won’t charge you anything upfront or out of pocket, so you have nothing to lose by giving us a call.
