Bicycles are a healthy mode of transportation often encouraged by the city as an environmentally friendly form of transportation. However, bicycle accidents can cause serious injuries and the severity of those injuries are usually far greater than those in an auto accident.
In 2018, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 857 bicyclists were killed in Las Vegas traffic accidents. Thousands of other accidents caused injuries that will change the cyclists’ lives forever. Avrek Law Firm’s Las Vegas bicycle accident lawyers know the devastation a bicycle accident can cause, and work with victims to demand fair compensation for injuries and damages.

Causes of Las Vegas Bike Accidents
The severity of injuries suffered by cyclists can be far greater than those of a regular car accident because the cyclist is not protected by much more than a helmet and protective gear. Bicycle accidents often occur because of driver error or negligence, or the location of the cyclist in relation to a moving vehicle. Some common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Cyclist is side-swept in a passing lane
- Cyclist is hit by an open car door
- Intersection crashes
- Weather and road conditions
- Failure to obey traffic laws and signs
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
No matter the cause of a bicycle accident, an experienced Las Vegas bike accident attorney can assess your case and work with you to obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries and damages.
