Bicycle Accidents

Attorney Jeff "JJ" Shaw knows as well as anyone the confusing laws regarding bicyclists in Indiana. He has recently tried two newsworthy successful trials involving bicycle and scooter accidents as mentioned in The Indianapolis Star article seen below.

While Indiana has an increasing number of bicyclists on the road (some statistics say the number of bikers has doubled since 2000), most Indiana cyclists and drivers are unaware of the specific Indiana laws regarding bicycles. As Indiana bicycle and bike accident attorneys we have represented numerous bicyclists who have been severely injured.

Many of these Indiana bike accidents involve crashes with car or trucks, while others have involved defective bikes, negligent placement of construction roadway markers, improper maintenance of roadway, and careless cycling by another cyclist on the road.

We've developed relationships with some of the best known biking experts in the country and used them to testify at trials involving bike and bicycling accidents. It is important to hire an Indiana personal injury law firm that has experience with bicycle accidents and understands the rules of the road.

The laws in Indiana are a mess and confusing to experts, drivers and bicyclists alike when it comes to bicycles on the road.

Clear Rules, Education Needed?

State law generally puts the burden on motorists to "exercise due caution" to avoid vulnerable road users. But it can be confusing for motorists what a cyclist is planning to do.

Advocates like Bicycle Indiana are working to educate both groups. And they have their sights set on adding new protections to cyclists in state law. Currently, laws spelling out who can be in a bike lane and establishing a 3-foot buffer when passing a bicycle have only been adopted by a few cities, including Indianapolis and Carmel.

The discrepancies from one city to another are confusing at best, and legally problematic at worst.

Here at McKibben Shaw Law, we believe that every accident is preventable. Every accident is due to someone's fault. You should not have to bear the brunt of the negligence of someone else.
