Frequently Asked Questions

Bicycle Accident, Car Driver Talking on Phone

"A car hit my bicycle as I was riding across the entrance of a parking lot. The driver was talking on his phone, but he is blaming me for not watching where I was going. Do I have a case for my injuries?"

We are sorry to hear that you were in an accident. Car and bicycle accidents are scary, especially for the bicyclist. Accidents can be complicated, often requiring that a skilled attorney sit down with you to review every detail of your case and determine if you have a potential claim.

For example, if you were riding on the sidewalk when there was a bike lane available, you may not be able to pursue a claim. However, if you were in a bicycle lane (if there even was one), following all the rules of the road, and riding with the flow of traffic, but the driver still hit you, then the driver could be held liable for your injuries.

Drivers of motor vehicles are required to look out for bicyclists and yield. However, in the state of Georgia, there is no law barring a driver over the age of 18 from using a handheld device behind the wheel. In order to determine liability in this case, we would need to review the incident closely.

We would be happy to provide you with a free, no-obligation consultation to help you figure out if you have a case. Please call our experienced Atlanta injury lawyers at Kalka & Baer LLC to schedule your appointment today.
