Southern California’s Mediterranean climate is conducive for bicycling all year round. People bike not only as a way to reach their destinations but also for exercise and outdoor leisure activities. Bicyclists generally use helmets and observe road safety rules but are still at risk of serious bicycle accidents when they are involved in collisions with motor vehicles.
Despite growing awareness of the right of bicyclists to share the road with other vehicles, many motorists still fail to exercise caution when passing bicyclists or to share the road with them, causing catastrophic injuries to bicyclists.
In a bicycle accident, a cyclist can suffer broken bones, fractures, road rash or in severe cases, head, brain or spinal cord injuries. Some bicyclists may not be as fortunate and can suffer fatal injuries.
If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a bicycle accident, working with an experienced and aggressive personal injury attorney can help you recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Bike accidents can happen when:
- A bicyclist is “T-boned” at an intersection
- A car sideswipes a bike or runs it off the road
- A driver opens a door just as a bike is passing by the vehicle
