Los Angeles Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Any time a person on a bicycle is hit by a larger vehicle, it’s the bicyclist who ends up suffering grave or even fatal injuries. This is because bicyclists don’t have the protection drivers of other vehicles have in the form of the vehicle’s metal frame and safeguards such as airbags and seatbelts. So, when you have a vehicle collide with a bicycle, you often see the motorist escape without injuries. But the bicyclist often suffers catastrophic or even fatal injuries.

What Causes Bicycle Accidents?

There are number of different factors that could lead bicycle accidents. Generally speaking, when motorists are negligent, that puts bicyclists at a far greater risk because of they are more vulnerable on the road. Here are some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents in Los Angeles:

Failure to yield:

Street intersections can be absolutely deadly for bicyclists particularly when motorists fail to stop and yield. Often times, we see deadly collisions occur when a vehicle is turning at an intersection and the driver fails to see the bicyclist.

Distracted driving:

We also see a number of bicycle accidents occur when drivers don't pay attention to the road. Even a moment of inattention can prove deadly for bicyclists.

Bike lane incursions:

Bike lanes are there for a reason – to protect bicyclists and give them a safe space on a busy roadway. When motorists fail to respect this space, the consequences can be devastating.

Dooring accidents:

When a vehicle occupant opens a door suddenly without checking for approaching bicyclists, a potentially deadly collision could occur. Bicyclists could suffer traumatic injuries just from the door's impact or they could be thrown onto the roadway where they face danger from other vehicles.

Proving a Bicycle Accident Claim

When we look at some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents, it becomes apparent that negligence on the part of motorists is often a major factor. Depending on the nature and circumstances of an accident, a number of different parties can be held liable.
For example, the motorist can be held liable if he or she caused the bicycle accident. In addition, a motorist’s employer can be held responsible if the collision occurred when the driver was on the job. If, for instance, the person who injured you was delivering packages, his or her employer can be held responsible for your bicycle accident injuries as well.
There are also other parties that can be held liable in bicycle accident cases. If a dangerous or defective roadway caused your crash, the governmental entity responsible for maintaining the roadway can be held accountable. If you were injured because of a defective bicycle or faulty bike part, the manufacturer of those products can also be held liable for your losses.
In a bicycle accident case, the burden of proving negligence is on the plaintiff. This is why you need an experienced Los Angeles bicycle accident lawyer on your side who will thoroughly investigate your case, help determine fault and liability, and build a strong case that will help you secure maximum possible compensation.
