Motor Vehicle vs. Bicycle Accidents

Written by Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton Injury Lawyer

Advice for Cyclists Injured in a Bicycle Accident with a Motor Vehicle

Joseph A. Nagy, Edmonton injury lawyer, provides a free consultation if you have been injured in a motor vehicle vs. bicycle accident.

I am Joseph A. Nagy, and I am an Edmonton injury lawyer serving central and northern Alberta. My specialty is dealing with all types of motor vehicle accidents. I can help you with any type of motor vehicle vs. bicycle accident.

Since the laws for cyclists are very unique, it is best to contact me, if you have been seriously injured in a motor vehicle vs. bicycle accident. I can assist you in determining who is at fault for the collision. The Traffic Safety Act and City Bylaws also govern the operation of cycles on our roadways.

For your convenience, here is a copy of the Bike Facility Infractions and Enforcement Oct. 2014 published by the City of Edmonton.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle vs. bicycle accident, call (780) 760-4878 or contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss the steps I can recommend to ensure your insurance company treats you fairly. Free consultation. Free parking.

Bicycle Accidents and Laws Governing Cyclists

Contact Edmonton bicycle accident lawyer Joseph A. Nagy if you have been injured in a motor vehicle vs. bicycle accident like the one shown here.

The Use of Highway and Rules of the Road Regulation has specific rules which apply to the operation of a bicycle or “cycle”. A person who is operating a bicycle on a highway has all the rights and is subject to all the duties of a person driving a motor vehicle. Cyclists must operate the bicycle as near as practicable to the right curb or edge of the roadway unless that person is in the process of making a left turn with the bicycle or crossing from one curb or edge of the roadway to the opposite curb or edge of the roadway. Cyclists must travel single file except when overtaking and passing another bicycle.

Bicycles and motor vehicles are constantly in conflict on our highways. The creation of designated bicycle lanes in urban areas helps to relieve some of the tension created between bicycles and motor vehicles. Hopefully the number of motor vehicle v. bicycle accidents will decrease.

Mr. Nagy helped me with my claim last year and managed to get me the best possible settlement (I was fighting against a very large and well-funded company with a dedicated legal department). Mr. Nagy handled my case with skill, determination and compassion. I would not be in my current state had it not been for his very prompt and professional response and actions on my behalf.

I highly recommended (and I still do!) him to my friends and colleagues who are or may be in a similar situation that I was in a year ago. I have nothing but high praise and respect for Mr. Nagy for taking on cases to protect and give the ‘little guys’ a fighting chance against the large and well-heeled entities of this world.
