California Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Our California weather permits bicyclists to literally travel at all times of the day and night, but it’s obvious that a bicycle is no match for a car or truck. Motor vehicles often strike bicyclists without even realizing it. Even a helmet-wearing bike rider is at best marginally protected. Injuries and fatalities are common. If you were injured in a bicycle accident, or if a family member lost their life, compensation may be available in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. The bicycle accident lawyers at Johnson Attorneys Group will aggressively protect your legal rights.
Bicycle Accidents and Deaths Result From Negligent Motorists
In California, bicycle accident data from The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal the following:
- In 2010, there were 2,715 total traffic fatalities in the state
- Of those fatalities, 99 were riding a bicycle
- There were more bicycle fatalities in California than in any other state
- California was second of all 50 states in all traffic fatalities
Bicyclists are at a great risk, especially in California, as the statistics show. If you were involved in a bicycle accident, it is your right to seek the compensation that may be available to you in a personal injury lawsuit. Skilled, qualified and experienced legal counsel is available at The Johnson Attorneys Group.
Motor Vehicle Conduct Resulting in Bicycle
Motorists are required by law to pay attention to their driving. When a driver is not focused on driving, they may be liable for damages if their conduct causes or contributes to a bicycle accident. This includes:
- Cellphone use
- Eating or drinking
- Drunken or drugged driving
- Reaching for something in the car
- Talking to passengers
- Lighting cigarettes
- Not obeying rules of the road
Negligent motor vehicle driver conduct often results in bicycle injuries and fatalities. Injured bicyclists may seek compensation for their injuries. Compensation often includes medical and hospital expenses, rehabilitative care, lost earnings, pain and suffering, property damage and much more.
