It is not uncommon for residents in California to enjoy a nice stroll outside or a bike ride. While many of these ventures take place near roadways, there are frequently sidewalks and bike lanes to add safety and protection for these travelers. Despite efforts to increase safety for cyclists, motorists, unfortunately, still collide with them. While it is clear that bicyclists are well aware of the risks associated with bike riding, only so much can be done to protect them from negligent or reckless drivers.
Due to their larger size and greater speed of travel, a collision with an automobile often leaves a biker with serious injuries that could be life threatening. The aftermath of a bicycle accident could be tragic, and an accident victim could suffer severe injuries and large medical expenses.
