How often do bicycle accidents in Virginia occur?

When we turn to data available from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, we can see those bicycle accident may only make up a fraction of the overall traffic collisions across the Commonwealth each year, but they have a significant impact on those involved. The DMV data shows that, during the latest reporting year, there were:

  • 651 total bicycle crashes
  • 13 fatal bicycle crashes
  • 614 bicycle injury crashes

We have many recreational bicyclists in and around Greensville and Southampton Counties, and these statistics show us that there is a high likelihood that a bicyclist will be seriously injured or killed in the event a crash occurs. Bicyclists do not have much protection from the force of a vehicle slamming into them. At Randall Page, P.C., our knowledgeable and experienced Virginia bicycle accident lawyers regularly help clients who have sustained the following:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Open head wounds
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Other neck or back injuries
  • Internal bleeding
  • Internal organ damage
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

How do these bicycle accidents occur?

Data from the Virginia DMV shows that bicyclists of all ages are at risk of sustaining injuries, and our Virginia bicycle accident lawyers know that these incidents occur in a variety of ways. These crashes often occur due to the negligence of other drivers. We regularly handle bicycle crash cases in which a driver struck a bicyclist because they:

  • Failed to follow traffic laws
  • Failed to yield the right of way to the cyclist
  • Were operating while impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Were operating while distracted by phones or other devices

Virginia law sets a statute of limitations (time limit) on bicycle accident civil cases at two years. This means that injury victims have two years from the date the bicycle accident occurs to file a civil personal injury lawsuit against an alleged negligent party to recover compensation.
