Bicycle Accidents in California

California is a popular state for bicyclists. With a temperate climate in Southern California, it is common to see many people out and about on their bicycles on a daily basis. Bicycling is also a good form of aerobic exercise and has many additional benefits. However, it is also not without risk. According to statistics maintained by the California Department of Motor Vehicles, there are more than 10,000 reported injuries, and approximately 100 deaths in California bicycle crashes each year. Bicyclists are very vulnerable to being hurt in a crash because they have almost no protection from the fore and impact of the accident. It is common for riders to suffer serious injuries, including broken bones, head injuries, scarring, and major trauma as a result of a bicycle crash.

When a bicycle accident occurs, it must be carefully investigated by authorities. In many cases, other drivers are responsible for the collision as a result of negligent or careless driving. Speeding, distraction, and failing to yield, among other reasons, are very frequent causes of bicycle crashes in our state. If you were injured riding a bicycle, you may have the legal right to seek compensation under California law.
