Bike Accident During a Green Light

"I seriously injured a bicyclist while proceeding through a green light. I shouldn't be held liable if the bicyclist ran a red light, should I?"

Your situation is sadly not unique. Bicyclists in Georgia and across the country sometimes run red lights and stop signs after glancing to see if there is any traffic approaching. Many cyclists engage in this dangerous maneuver for a number for reasons, from sensor lights that don't change for bicycles, to cyclists that don't believe the traffic rules apply to them.

Unfortunately, they sometimes make mistakes and fail to see an approaching vehicle because they quickly glance in both directions. Since bicycles are vehicles, they are required by law to stop at red lights, stop signs and obey traffic laws just like cars. These laws are established and put in place for everyone’s best interests in order to minimize Atlanta bicycle accidents and injuries from occurring. If another car ran a red light and you collided with it, the other driver would be at fault.

The same is true in a Georgia cycling accident. If the bicyclist ran a red light, he or she should be held liable for the accident and damages. You may need to talk with an attorney to make sure your interests are being protected.
