SFV Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Dangerous Bicycle Collision? Call (818) 783-8446

Do you need a lawyer for a bicycle accident injury case in the San Fernando Valley or anywhere else in our state? Southern California is not quite known for walking or bicycle riding — and maybe for a good reason. Los Angeles County has one of the highest fatal bicycle and automobile accident rates in the United States. In Los Angeles, the fatal accidents triple that of the national average. The study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and California Highway Patrol estimated that 2,086 fatal accidents occurred over an eight year period. With Los Angeles County roads being geared more toward cars than pedestrians and cyclists, it is not unusual that these numbers would be so high; however, if you or a loved one has been injured or killed because of a negligent driver, you have rights and should be able to receive compensation.

California Bicycle Laws

In California, bicyclists must wear helmets and abide by the share the road rules, which includes having cyclists adhere to bike lanes and traffic signals. Most bicycle riders are involved in accidents with cars in intersections, where drivers fail to notice a rider before making a turn. Unlike vehicles, or even motorcycles, most bicycle riders have little protecting them from injury besides helmets and sometimes padding. Common bicycle accident injuries include:

  • Major head injuries
  • Spinal and neck damage
  • Broken bones
  • Road rash
  • Paralysis or death
  • Cuts and lacerations
