Where Are You Most Likely to Be Injured on a Bicycle in Arizona?
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, bicycle accidents tend to occur most frequently in urban areas, particularly in cities like Phoenix, Tucson, and Mesa. In these areas, there is typically more traffic and congestion, which increases the likelihood of accidents involving cyclists.
Intersections and major roadways are common locations for bicycle accidents to occur, as drivers may be less likely to notice cyclists sharing the road with them. Additionally, areas with a high concentration of bars and restaurants may see an increase in bicycle accidents, as alcohol consumption can impair drivers' ability to see and react to cyclists. It's important for both cyclists and drivers to be aware of these common accident locations and take precautions to prevent accidents from happening.

Cuts and lacerations - Cuts and lacerations can range from minor scrapes to deep wounds that require stitches.
Soft tissue injuries like sprains and strains - Soft tissue injuries like sprains and strains can cause pain, swelling, and limited mobility.

How Do Insurance Companies
Make Money Off Of Your Injuries?
Insurance companies make money in three ways: underwriting profit, investments, and reduced overall claims expense. Underwriting profit occurs when the company insures policyholders who have few or no losses. The company earns premiums but doesn't have to pay out any money for claims. This is why the underwriting department carefully evaluates potential insureds for risk profiles that are favorable to the insurance company's complex underwriting models.
Investment income is also a way for insurance companies to make money. They are only allowed to invest a small percentage of portfolios in high-risk/high-reward investments, and most investments include bonds, short-term, and other low-yield but safe investing vehicles. Insurance company investments are supposed to be safe for the company and its investors and policyholders.
Reducing overall claims expense is the only factor that is generally within the control of the insurance company. Insurance companies gamble that their insureds will not have losses, and premiums are set on that basis. The claims department can be seen as the enforcer of this gambling racket. The company's profits increase when it employs aggressive defense tactics in claims handling and litigation management, leading to insureds abandoning their claims due to cost or frustration.
Overall, claims management is the only profit factor that is in the control of the insurance company. Senior management pays close attention to how aggressively their claims department handles policyholder claims, as it affects the company's profits. After you've been injured in a car accident, it is the claims department and senior management that work against you to profit off of your injuries.
However, when you hire experienced accident attorney, like the attorneys at The Dr. Lawyer Law Group, the insurance company's math changes. They know they won't be able to lowball you to increase profits. Instead, a personal injury law firm like ours helps you build your case and present the best evidence to increase the value of your car accident claim.
Read some of our ★★★★★ Reviews!
I came to the Dr Lawyer after a serious car crash in Tempe. The Dr. Lawyer Law Group stuck out to me because I knew I needed medical treatment, so why not choose a personal injury attorney who is also a doctor. They got me appointments with a great physical therapist and made sure that I knew the direction of my medical care. They handled my legal case with no stress to me and at the end I got a great settlement for my injuries. I am so glad I had a great attorney I could trust and who helped put this behind me.
I can't begin to recommend the Dr. Lawyer Law Group enough. From the very first call with Dr. Shah I felt listened to. His team (especially Dan Hollnagel) answered all my questions, kept me informed, and got me far more than I expected from the at-fault driver's insurance. My only regret is that I waited for 7 months after the car accident to call them.
The Dr. Lawyer Law Group did excellent work with my claim. I loved the communication I received and how efficient and organized everything was. They made sure that I was made whole, constantly going back to the drawing board and finding ways to help my case. I recommend this agency to any and all who need representation and I will for sure be utilizing their services again if needed!
How You Can Protect Yourself While Riding a Bicycle in Arizona
There are several things that bicyclists can do to protect themselves while riding on the streets of Arizona. First and foremost, it's important to wear a helmet at all times, as this can greatly reduce the risk of head injuries in the event of an accident. Additionally, bicyclists should always wear reflective clothing and use lights when riding at night, as this can increase visibility and reduce the risk of collisions with motor vehicles.
It's also important to follow all traffic laws and signals, such as stopping at red lights and stop signs, using hand signals to indicate turns, and riding in the same direction as traffic. Bicyclists should always be aware of their surroundings and stay alert for potential hazards, such as potholes or debris on the road. Finally, bicyclists should consider taking a safety course or joining a group ride to learn more about safe riding techniques and to connect with other cyclists in the community.
