Los Angeles LGBT Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Have You Been Involved in a Bicycle Accident?
Bicycle accidents can be one of the more dangerous automobile accidents primarily due to the lack of protection. A bicyclist can either be hit by a motor vehicle, can be injured by a roadway or walkway with potholes, sewer grates, or railroad tracks, or negligence can occur on behalf of the driver or the cyclist himself. Driver negligence can be characterized as speeding, running a stop sign, and veering into a bike lane. Biker negligence can be characterized by biking in the wrong direction on a one-way road, running a stop sign, or suddenly turning into traffic. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Center for Disease Control, and the National Safety Council, bicycle accidents lead to 515,000 visits to the emergency room in 2010, and 677 fatalities in 2011. In 2013, 743 people were killed in bicycle and motor vehicle collisions and 480,000 were injured. The overall cost of fatalities and injuries of cyclists is more than $4 billion annually.
