Understanding Bike Accidents in California

California is known for its vibrant cycling culture, with thousands of residents and visitors riding bicycles for leisure, commuting, or exercise. Unfortunately, the increasing conflicts between bicyclists and drivers, pedestrians, and other bicyclists result in more accidents and injuries. Causes can include:

  • Driver Negligence: In many cases, bicycle accidents result from drivers failing to exercise caution around cyclists. Common driver behaviors include distracted driving, failure to yield, speeding, running red lights or stop signs, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

  • Road Hazards: Poorly maintained roads, uneven surfaces, potholes, and debris can pose significant risks to cyclists. Municipalities failing to address these hazards promptly can lead to severe accidents and injuries.

  • Dooring Accidents: Dooring accidents happen when a driver or passenger opens a car door without checking for approaching cyclists. The impact of a cyclist colliding with an open door can result in serious injuries

  • Negligent Cyclists: Most bicycle accidents are caused by negligent vehicle drivers, but cyclists often cause collisions with others. This could include reckless riding, failure to follow traffic laws, or cycling under the influence of alcohol or drugs

  • Electric Scooters: Unsafe riders can cut off or collide with bicyclists. If they crash into a pedestrian or object, you may end up on top of them. Scooters are often carelessly left behind on sidewalks and streets, potentially causing bicycle accidents

Your case may involve these or other issues that caused your injuries
