Columbia Driver Error Attorneys

Drivers are sharing the road with bicyclists at an increased rate in recent years. While many cities and states are implementing bike lanes for safety, this is still not the case in several major metropolitan areas. Bicycle accident cases share similarities with auto accidents due to the nature and cause of the accidents. The glaring difference between the two types of crashes, however, is the increased potential for injury for a bicyclist involved in an accident with a vehicle. These types of accidents are often due to driver error, either by the cyclist or automobile driver.

Driver error is when the operator of a vehicle makes a mistake due to negligence or recklessness, causing an accident and subsequent injuries. When driver error occurs with a vehicle and a bicycle, there can be devastating consequences in the form of serious physical injuries and possibly death. The bicycle accident driver error attorneys of the Goings Law Firm, LLC help bicyclists in the Columbia area pursue both justice and financial compensation when a careless driver causes undue harm.

Types of Driver Error

Driver error covers a broad range of road situations. A large majority of auto accidents and accidents involving bicycles in Columbia involve driver error. Some of the most common reasons for these accidents include the following:

  • Failure to obey traffic signs
  • Not checking blind spots before changing lanes
  • Not using appropriate signals before turning
  • Failing to check for bicyclists
  • Driving too close to bicycle lanes

Injuries can render a person incapable of working by causing them irreversible harm. At the Goings Law Firm, LLC, we take driver error accident cases seriously and help hold drivers responsible for such errors accountable for their actions.
