Accidents and injuries involving bicycles are treated similarly in a court of law to automobile and other personal injury accidents. In Louisiana, bicycles are treated as vehicles, therefore a person riding a bicycle has all of the rights and duties of a driver of a vehicle, except as to those provisions which by their nature can have no application. Louisiana does not require that bicyclists use any lane or path other than a normal vehicular traffic lane. However, state law requires that bicyclists ride as close as practicable to the right-hand edge of the roadway except under certain circumstances, such as when making a left turn. 

Someone injured on or by a bicycle can file a lawsuit against a defendant whose negligence or willful misconduct caused the injury.
