Bicycle Accidents in California

Sacramento, CA – Bicyclist Injured in Car Crash on Watt Ave near Margaret WayAccidents involving motor vehicles have the potential to permanently alter almost every facet of a person’s life. The unfortunate truth is that there are hundreds of vehicle accidents every day in the state of California that leave victims with injuries that have a major impact on their life. When individuals are riding bicycles at the time of their auto collisions, they significantly increase their chances of sustaining severe injuries that require substantial medical treatment.

Regrettably, we see a large number of victims being forced into local hospitals, where they are required to receive extensive medical treatment for the injuries they sustained. Common injuries that are reported in bicycle accidents in California include:

  • Compound fractures.
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • The loss of limbs.
  • Trauma to the head.
  • Internal organ injuries.

Regrettably, as a result of drivers who are careless and reckless, bikers are frequently injured or killed while traveling on roads across our state. Some of the most common causes of these accidents are:

  • Drivers that disregard stop signs or red lights.
  • Drivers that are going at an unsafely fast speed for the current conditions of the road or the weather.
  • Motorists that neglect to give room to cyclists on the road.
  • Motorists who are operating their vehicles while under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.
  • Drivers who open their doors hastily without first checking their surroundings (dooring accidents).

Every day, acts of neglect like these and others continue to cause harm to innocent individuals in our state. Bicyclists who suffer injuries as a result of collisions with motor vehicles are eligible to file claims for financial compensation against the drivers who cause them harm.
