St. Louis Bicycle Accident Attorney
Millikan Wright, LLC Can Help You Seek Justice
When it comes to accidents on the road, bicyclists are put at a profound
disadvantage when it comes to the risk of injury. Without the benefits
of cabin safety features, these individuals are exposed directly to collisions
and the trauma they can inflict. It is not uncommon for bicyclists to
face catastrophic and even life-threatening injuries from an accident
with a motor vehicle.
When these accidents occur due to motorist negligence, then legal action
is called for. At
Millikan Wright, LLC, our experienced and knowledgeable
St. Louis personal injury lawyers have more than 50 years of combined legal experience. They know what it
takes to bring compelling and effective legal action against the responsible
parties and put their clients in the best possible position to receive
the compensation they deserve.

How Motorists Cause Bicycle Accidents
Over the last few years, we have seen a rise in the popularity of bicycling.
While it remains a cheap and healthy way to commute, not all drivers have
acclimated themselves to watching for bicycles in the usual flow of motor
vehicle traffic. Because of this, bicyclists are often marginalized on
the road and put at risk of injury.
Motorists can cause injury to bicyclists when:
- They drift into bike lanes (or road shoulders)
- They do not look for bicycles before exiting their vehicle (door injuries)
- They are driving while distracted (devices, phones, etc.)
- They are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- They do not look or signal before turning at an intersection
- They follow bicyclists too closely (tailgating)
- They exceed the speed limit
If you believe that one of the above causes played a role in your bicycle
accident, then you may have the grounds to seek relief for your medical
bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. At Millikan Wright, LLC, we
believe in the rights, interests, and dignity of injury victims and can
make recovering compensation on your behalf our highest priority.
