Do you remember your parents teaching you to look both ways before crossing the road when you were a child? Do you remember your parents teaching you to let a dog sniff your hand before you pet it?

Cyclists: Who's to blame for your dooring accident?

One of the things cyclists know they have to look out for are drivers who park and swing their doors open without looking in the lane next to them. Cyclists have to ride as far to the right as possible on a road, and that sometimes means riding close to parked vehicles. Throwing a door open suddenly gives a cyclist no time to maneuver, leading to a dooring accident. If this happens, you have the option of pursuing a claim against the driver.
