Ohio Bike Laws
Cyclists face unique challenges while sharing the roadway with motorists. Ohio law requires cyclists to ride as far to the right side of the roadway as practicable. This flexible standard is meant to let motorist pass cyclist on the left while allowing cyclists to move further into the roadway to avoid threats like car doors and potholes on the right. The flexibility of the “practicable” standard can create confusion and misunderstanding, which can lead to assertions by insurers and defense attorneys that the cyclists was at fault in causing the collision. Insurers and defense attorneys may also seek to diminish driver responsibility by blaming head and other injuries on the cyclist’s lack of protective gear and proper lighting.
These issues and the serious nature of injuries often sustained by cyclists in collisions add an extra level of complexity to bicycle injury cases. An experienced bicycle accident attorney will guide you through your injury case and work to explain the facts, law and circumstances of your bicycle accident to insurers, defense attorneys and jurors. Simply put, an experienced attorney will help to ensure that you receive the best outcome for your bicycle injury case.
Why Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side
Our attorneys have the knowledge and grit necessary to effectively negotiate with insurers. It is not the job of insurance companies to give you a fair deal. They will do their best to pay as little as possible and to undermine your claim. Insurance adjusters know that the attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal passionately pursue our client’s cases during negotiations and, if necessary, in litigation. This allows us to achieve great results for our clients.
