Car vs. Bicycle: The Car Always Wins
The human body on bicycle is no match for tons of steel rushing along a roadway. A bicyclist who is hit by a car or truck nearly always suffers serious injuries. Fatalities are common when people and cars collide. An experienced accident lawyer is a valuable source of help and information for you and your family at this time.
Advocate for Injured Victims in Santa Clara County
An accident can happen in the blink of an eye and when you least expect it: while out for your morning ride; while exercising your dog; in the grocery store parking lot. Some common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Distracted drivers: Drivers who were not paying attention behind the wheel. They may be talking on a cell phone or texting, eating while driving, applying makeup, or simply daydreaming.
- Reckless driving: Drivers who were disregarding the safety of bike riders and other motorists by speeding, running stop signs or stop lights, failing to accommodate the bike lane, and failing to yield to riders and pedestrians using the crosswalk.
No matter what caused your accident, you deserve to learn about your legal options from an experienced lawyer.
