Bicycle accidents cause thousands of serious and sometimes fatal injuries every year. Other driv-ers are generally to blame for bicycle accidents, as they often fail to look for bicyclists before changing lanes, turning, or stopping at red lights. Unfortunately, this can often lead to dangerous accidents.
