Riding a bicycle is fun and a great way to exercise. Unfortunately, thousands of bicycle riders are injured every year in accidents involving motor vehicles. Those accidents are usually the fault of the motorist, and can result in severe injuries for the bicyclist, including brain damage and spinal cord injuries. Bicycle accidents often occur because car drivers violate one of the most important safety rules of the road when they fail to look for and yield to bicycles. Serious injuries are common even in low speed collisions, and higher speed crashes often result in death. Hundreds of bicyclists are killed every year by car and truck drivers.
California law protects bicyclists, and gives them the same rights on the road as motorists. Unfortunately, motorists do not always look out for cyclists and respect their right to share the road. When a driver fails to pay attention to a bicyclist and respect his or her right of way, the outcome can be disastrous. The injuries in a bicycle/motorized vehicle accident can range from minor scrapes and bruises to broken bones and severe back, brain and spinal cord damage. Oftentimes these accidents result in permanent disabilities, and in the very worst situations, the bicyclist may be killed.
