Nearly half of all bicycle accidents that include a car take place at intersections, and more than one in five bicyclist fatalities are children 5-15 years old.
Bicycle Accidents & The Law
Many Californians are unaware of exactly who has the right of way when it comes to motorists and bicyclists. The latter are in fact treated the same as automobiles in the eyes of the law; that is, while pedestrians always have the right of way, this does not apply to those on a bicycle. Thus when a bicyclist and a motorist approach an intersection, whoever arrived first has the right of way. Learn about some important bicycle laws in California.
Many bicyclists, believing themselves to be perpetually in the right, take part in dangerous behavior, resulting in serious injuries by way of an accident. In addition, bicyclists must be aware of city ordinances regarding when they may use the sidewalks.
At the same time, automobile drivers may be held responsible to your injuries as a bicyclist if they were operating their vehicle negligently in any way. Our aggressive Los Angeles personal injury attorney can work to recover a fair settlement with the driver’s insurance company.
The compensation recovered can pay your:
- Medical and hospital bills
- Prescription medication costs
- Property damage
- Lost pay from work
- Emotional trauma

After a Bicycle Accident: Protecting Your Rights
In the aftermath of a bicycle accident, call the police right away and report to them what happened, followed by obtaining a copy of their report. You will need to then get a hold of any witnesses’ information, along with that of the driver which injured you. After you obtain medical treatment, be sure to retain copies of any treatment you received and receipts for any medication. Document your injuries and record your account of the accident as soon as you can. Importantly, do not talk to an insurance adjuster until you have spoken with an injury attorney.
