Often the bicyclist will be cited for accidents involving motor vehicles for minor traffic violations; however, such a citation does not always establish that the driver of the motor vehicle was not at fault. In most instances, as a cyclist in Ohio, you have the same rights to the road as a driver of a car, truck, bus, motorcycle, or other motor vehicle. If the driver of a motor vehicle is at fault for a collision, or for forcing you off the roadway, due to driver fatigue, distracted driving (cell phone texting), drunk driving (intoxication), or simple carelessness, you have the right to pursue a claim to recover from that driver or his or her insurance company. This is often true even if there was no contact between the motor vehicle and the bicycle.
Visibility issues and failure to yield are common causes of bicycle accident cases, especially when children are involved, as drivers of larger vehicles often overlook smaller objects. This often leads to accidents caused by a driver pulling out in front of a bicycle resulting in a forceful collision. The consequences of these serious injuries can be long lasting.

- Head injuries, brain injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Neck injuries, shoulder injuries
