An open car door is a disaster for fatalities in bicycle accidents. When a car door is opened on a bicyclist it normally won’t be the cause of the fatality but what normally comes after the cyclist falls on the ground in front of oncoming cars that is normally the cause of death.
Riding between parked cars and moving cars are not ideal because of the imminent risk of an opening car door. As a cyclists you should always give yourself enough room to prevent having a door open on you. Ride in the lane of traffic if you must to give yourself sufficient room on either side. Look for signs that a can might be opening their door soon. Slow down when in doubt.
Also, be sure to wear proper protection to reduce the amount of injuries when riding your bicycle and to observe the laws of the road where riding.
Open door accidents can cause very painful or even fatal injuries. If you are ever in an accident or crash you maybe entitled to compensation for Injuries, Medical Expenses, Lost Income, Property Damage, Pain and Suffering, and others.
