Bicycle Accidents in California
Every day, life-altering crashes are reported in the state of California. A significant number of these accidents are caused by drivers who are negligent and reckless in nature. Operating a vehicle without carrying or considering other motorists or bicyclists traveling nearby can cause severe harm.
Unfortunately, bicyclists are often unnecessarily harmed as a result of drivers who are negligent and reckless. We see countless bicyclists hurt as a result of drivers who run red lights, fail to stop at stop signs, and engage in other reckless and negligent actions. Not yielding the right-of-way to pedestrians or bicyclists can have severe consequences.
The fact that bicyclists typically have very little protection during accidents increases the chances of them suffering severe and life-altering injuries. Regrettably, we see countless bicyclists left with severe trauma to the head, severe organ injuries, and even severe cuts and lacerations. The unfortunate truth is that bicycle accidents can be incredibly devastating. In some cases, victims are left permanently disabled due to the nature of their injuries. It is crucial that crash victims are aware of the legal options that they have when it comes to seeking justice and moving forward.
