Liability In Bicycle Accidents
Bicyclists and pedestrians are much more likely to be killed or seriously injured in car accidents. Far too often these accidents happen because drivers are speeding or distracted. According to California Vehicle code 22350, “No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.” Any person injured in a bicycle accident may be able to recover damages through a bodily injury claim.
