Bicycling is an excellent form of physical fitness and an environmentally friendly way to get around, whether you’re traveling through downtown Fort Wayne or a quiet residential neighborhood. Unfortunately, with more people making bicycling a part of their daily commute or exercise routine, the number of bicycle accidents in our area has increased. At the Bellinger Law Office, we help you hold responsible drivers accountable when crashes occur between vehicles and cyclists. Our experienced and compassionate personal injury attorneys understand Indiana’s traffic laws inside and out, and we are available to help you fight for the compensation you need to recover after a bike-riding injury.
According to crash statistics from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, 744 cyclists were involved in collisions reported to police in 2019, and of those, nearly 10% (71) occurred in Allen County. As bicyclists have little to protect them in collisions involving motor vehicles, the injuries they suffer as a result tend to be severe.
It’s no surprise that many bicycle accidents are caused by the reckless driving behaviors of distracted or careless motorists. Actions such as speeding, disregarding traffic signs and signals, and driving under the influence all put Fort Wayne bicyclists at risk. When a bike accident does occur, drivers can be held liable for the medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages that result. To protect your rights in a claim, Consumer Reports recommends the following tips:
Bicycling provides a great way to commute around cities like Fort Wayne, as well as an opportunity to spend time enjoying the beautiful Indiana countryside.

At the Bellinger Law Office, we provide the professional legal representation you need to hold at-fault drivers accountable.
