Bicycles and vehicles share many of the same roadways. While bicyclists have the right to ride on most roads and streets, there are laws to help keep bicycle riders safe. Unfortunately, even when cyclists follow the law, accidents may still occur.
Accidents between bicycles and vehicles can result in serious injury or even death. Even when cyclists wear bright or reflective clothing and have lights or reflectors on their bikes, drivers don’t always see them until it is too late to slow down or move over.
Bicycle Accident Victims Rights in California
If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle accident and the driver is at fault, you have the right to seek compensation. A bicycle accident lawyer at Curtis Legal Group can help you file a lawsuit against the driver responsible for the accident.
Compensation for Medical Bills and Lost Income
If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle accident, you probably have medical bills, lost income, and maybe even ongoing medical care costs. Additionally, since cyclists are basically unprotected in a crash, bicycle accidents are likely to result in serious injury. After a serious injury, the victim may never be the same, requiring nursing care, home accommodations, and follow-up medical procedures. You deserve financial compensation to help with the expenses you face due to someone else’s negligent actions.
Common Causes for Bicycle Accidents
When vehicles are involved in accidents with bicycles, it is typically the result of distracted driving, speeding, or some other reckless behavior. The driver may have been texting and driving, eating, talking to a passenger, or reaching for something that caused them to fail to see the bicycle. If the driver was negligent or driving recklessly, they should be held responsible for your injuries.
By filing a lawsuit, you may be able to get compensation for your medical expenses and pain and suffering. It may even help prevent future accidents if the driver is held responsible.
