Bicycle Accident in Newport Beach
Southern California is home to many bicyclists. With a warm climate and accommodating terrain, bicycle riding is a popular activity in our area. This does not mean, however, that riding a bicycle is without risks. While Orange County features many accommodations for bikers, including bicycle lanes and dedicated trails, there are still hundreds of bicycle crashes in this area each year. When a bicycle accident does happen, it often leads to serious injuries as the rider has little protection from the force and impact of the crash. Many bicycle accidents occur at intersections where drivers may fail to yield the right of way or may not see the bicyclist until it is too late to avoid an accident.
You may have questions about your legal rights if you or a family member have been involved in a Newport Beach bicycle accident. The crash can result in many major impacts on your life and your health. If your injuries were serious in nature, the medical treatment can be quite costly and complex. Another issue with bicycle crashes is that fault for the accident is often contested. The other driver may attempt to avoid responsibility by claiming that they were not at fault. In these situations, it is crucial to have a strong and trusted legal advocate by your side every step of the way.
