Under the laws of North Carolina, bicycle riders are entitled to the same legal protections as cars and trucks.  Yet, far too often bicyclists are ignored and serious injuries are the result.

Many bicycle wrecks involve car, truck, and bus drivers’ recklessness or carelessness, roadway hazards or defects, or defective products or parts such as pedals, rims, wheels, brakes, and helmets. Some of the most significant threats to bicycle riders are the sudden opening of car doors, lane changes and improper or illegal turns.

In some cases, bicyclists are injured because of dangerous road conditions such as:

  • sand and gravel on roadways
  • road resurfacing
  • railroad tracks
  • grooved pavement and uneven sidewalks
