Bicyclists are among the most exposed persons on Kansas City’s roadways. With or without designated bike paths, they are at risk of suffering significant physical trauma if struck or run off the road by a car, truck, or other motor vehicle. Broken bones, traumatic brain injury, internal organ damage, spinal cord injury, and other catastrophic injuries can be caused even by low-speed bicycle accidents.

About Bike & Cycling Accidents
Cycling is continually gaining momentum as a preferred mode of transportation, recreation, and exercise for many Americans. According to the NHTSA, from 2000-2012 there was a 64% increase in cyclists traveling to work. With more cyclists on the road, however, there is a greater risk of injuries and fatalities caused by negligent motorists, roadway hazards, and other dangerous situations.
Our Kansas City bicycle accident attorneys can take on cases involving:
- Distracted drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Speeding and other traffic violations
- Intersection violations
- Failures to yield to a cyclist
- Dangerous or defective roadways
- Bicycle and motor vehicle defects
- Defective bicycle helmets or other safety gear
We also take on cases involving motorists turning right into cyclists’ paths, and cyclists who run into the doors of vehicles as drivers open them unexpectedly into the riders’ paths. No matter the circumstances of your accident, our Kansas City bike accident lawyers are prepared to see how we can best assist you.
