Bicycle Accidents

At the Law Office of Jon S. Jacobs, we represent people who have been injured in bicycle accidents.

The number of vehicles that share Hawaii’s roadways with bicyclists ensure that motor vehicle/bicycle accidents are a fact of modern life. Bicyclists can be difficult for drivers to see, even if wearing high-visibility clothing and using reflectors.

Bicycle accidents are often the result of the other driver’s negligence. Some of the most commonly-cited causes include:

  • Cutting off a bicyclist at an intersection
  • Failure to yield
  • Following too closely
  • Swerving in front of a bicyclist
  • Speeding
  • Distraction
  • Driving under the influence

Too many drivers do not pay proper attention and fail to look out for bicyclists. Injuries that result from bicycle accidents are often severe. A bicyclist simply has less protection than someone in a motor vehicle, even if the bicyclist is wearing a helmet. Additionally, the impact of a motor vehicle on a bicycle tends to result in the bicyclist being ejected, causing serious injuries.

If you have been injured, you need an attorney who has experience in bicycle accident cases. Mr. Jacobs understands the complex laws that apply to these cases in Hawaii, and he can help you maximize your chances of winning the compensation you deserve.
