Liability In Head-On Collisions
Drivers are supposed to keep an eye out for pedestrians and bicyclists. Accidents tend to take place when drivers make unsafe lane changes or dangerous left turns. According to the California Vehicle Code, drivers making left turns must yield the right of way to driver’s that are close enough to pose a hazard. The family of any victim that dies in a bicycle accident may have legal recourse through a wrongful death claim.
