With California having such beautiful weather in addition to its residents being healthy and environmentally conscious, many Californians ride their bicycle each day for recreation as well as for transportation. With hundreds of bicyclists in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties occupying the streets and roadways, there is a high likelihood of accidents happening to bicyclists.
Most drivers of motor vehicles do not understand that cyclists have rights on the road. In fact, they have the same rights to the road as automobiles. Unfortunately, bicyclists are typically more difficult to see then vehicles and inattentive drivers often don’t see them. On average, over a hundred bicycle accidents occur in California every day. These are typically caused by the careless actions of motor vehicle drivers’ changing lanes and side swiping bicyclists.
The collision between a car and a biker typically results in major injuries such as paralysis, soft-tissue injuries, neck injuries, head injuries, amongst many other serious injuries.
