Riding a bicycle to school, to work or to various social activities is extremely popular in San Diego. Why? The weather is amazing, the reduced environmental impact of riding a bike and the numerous health benefits associated with riding a bike to begin with.

Injuries that happen when a victim is riding on a bike can be life threatening or even fatal. In the event that you have recently sustains injuries in an accident, you may be entitled to pursue compensation. Contact a San Diego bicycle accident lawyer at The May Firm today to secure your legal rights.

Bicycle Accidents in The United States

The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration shares that in 2010, more than 600 bicyclists were killed and a further 50,000 were injured in traffic accidents across as by negligence on the part of vehicle driver.

A cyclist has the same duty and rights as a motor vehicle driver when traveling. If you have recently been injured in an accident where a driver's recklessness or negligence is to blame for the serious injuries you have sustained, you need insight from a San Diego bicycle accident lawyer. During this time there are few people that you can trust and you need to have the confidence that you have someone advocating for your best interest.

When you have a bicycle accident, you want to ensure that you select  San Diego bicycle accident lawyers who are familiar with all of your rights and the state laws about accidents in order to maximize your chances of receiving compensation in your personal injury case. Even though there are clear guidelines about best tips for sharing the road with cyclists, accident do often still happen, but it is usually the cyclist who will suffer more severe injuries.

Cyclists Exposed to Higher Injury Risk

Due to the fact that a driver or passenger inside a vehicle has the benefit of safety tools like a seatbelt and airbags, a person on a bicycle has the potential to be thrown from the bicycle in midst of a catastrophic injury during the few seconds that make up many vehicle accidents. What starts out as a pleasant bike ride in the sunny weather of San Diego can quickly turn into a deadly experience if a negligent or reckless vehicle operator does not proceed cautiously. Bicycle accidents, unfortunately, are no minor matter.

Common Causes of San Diego  Bicycle Accidents 

Many bicycle accidents today happen as a result of negligence. When someone other than the cyclist is negligent in an accident, the cyclist may be eligible to pursue a California personal injury claim. Some of the most common examples of negligence that lead to severe biking accidents include:

  • Distracted driving. Texting, talking on the phone or any other distraction that pulls the driver's attention away from the road could lead to a devastating accident.
  • Vehicles traveling in the bicycle lane. If there are clearly marked lanes for cyclists on the road and a driver weaves into that lane, he or she may strike a cyclist.
  • Failure to yield. When a motor vehicle does not properly yield to a cyclist, a major accident can occur. This most frequently happens when a car swerves into the bicycle lane.
  • Driving under the influence. Driving under the influence always constitutes negligent behavior and it can cause catastrophic injuries when the accident involves a cyclist.
