Bicycle Accidents in California

Bicyclists are very vulnerable to being involved in serious accidents. While bicycling is a hobby that is enjoyed by many Californians, it can turn deadly when a bicyclist is involved in a crash with a motor vehicle. The sheer difference in size and power often means that bicyclists sustain catastrophic injuries when they are struck by cars. Police will continue to investigate this crash in an effort to determine how it occurred.

If you or a loved one have been hurt in a California bicycle accident, you may have important and valuable legal rights. If the crash was not your fault, you could recover damages from a negligent motorist, including payments for pain and suffering, as well as medical and prescription bills arising from the crash.
