Bicycle Accidents in California
In many parts of California, a bicycle is a convenient and enjoyable form of transportation. Considering this, the state has implemented laws intended to enhance the safety of both drivers and bicyclists who share the roadways. Despite the laws created to protect bicyclists from deadly accidents caused by drivers, negligence remains a common occurrence, resulting in dozens of bicyclist accidents on California roadways each year. If you or your loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, you need an experienced attorney to help you file a personal injury suit and claim compensation for any damages you sustained.
Negligence and Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents are frequently the result of negligence. Drivers often fail to consider timing, space, and distance when sharing the road with cyclists. Motorists often cite blind spots as a cause of collisions with bicyclists. However, some cases are also attributed to intentional conduct such as driving a car in the bike lane. Accidents often occur as a result of motorists failing to follow basic rules of the road, such as making full stops at stop signs or checking before changing lanes. Regardless of whether an accident was a result of intentional or negligent conduct, you may be entitled to relief if you have been injured in a bicycle accident in California.
Damages and Bicycle Accidents
Damages sustained by a cyclist in a collision with a motor vehicle can be extensive. Even collisions with little force have the potential to cause serious injuries. Injuries typically associated with these types of accidents include scratches and bruises, fractures or broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and more. Not only can these injuries lead to missed time at work for treatment, but they will also lead to extensive medical bills and pain and suffering.
