Bike Accidents Caused by Hitting a Car Door

"I hit a car door as I was riding my bike in traffic. Is the bicycle accident my fault or that of the driver who opened the car door?"

Most car accidents involving bicycles can be complicated, which is why it is important to consult with an experienced attorney. If a car door unexpectedly swings out into the bicyclist's path, the driver of the automobile may be liable for the cyclist's injuries. Drivers are supposed to look out for bicyclists and other vehicles. As Georgia law § 40-6-243 states, "No person shall open the door of a motor vehicle on the side available to moving traffic unless and until it is reasonably safe to do so and can be done without interfering with the movement of other traffic, nor shall any person leave a door open on the side of a vehicle available to moving traffic for a period of time longer than necessary to load or unload passengers."

If you or someone you love was injured or killed due to an opening car door, then the driver of the vehicle may be subject to an Atlanta personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Contact the Atlanta lawyers at The Kalka Law Group today.
