Bicycle Accident Caused by Opening Vehicle Door (“Doored”)
Motorists Subject Cyclists To Risks Even When Their Motor Vehicles Are No Longer Moving
Whether you are an experienced cyclist or someone who simply rides a bicycle for fun or as a mode of transportation, you have probably ridden your bicycle along a roadway where motorists pull-over or park their vehicles to the right of where you’re riding your bicycle. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for motorists and their passengers to suddenly fling their doors open without looking for oncoming bicyclists. When this occurs, cyclists often don’t have time to avoid the collision with the opened door, resulting in the cyclist being flung into or over the open door, or even possibly through its window.
