Have you been injured in a bike accident?
Bicycle accidents are far too common in California, many caused by an inattentive or aggressive motorist. Statistics show 51,000 cyclists are injured in motor vehicle accidents per year. Unlike an automobile, a bicycle leaves its rider unprotected and vulnerable to serious injuries in an accident. Cyclists also have relatively low visibility. Even the most careful and experienced cyclists can easily find themselves over the bars in an instant, no match for the automobile or hard pavement.

While helmets offer some limited protection to a cyclist’s head in such accidents, serious head injuries are all too common. Moreover, the rider’s body is completely exposed to violent contact with vehicles, signs, guardrails, curbs and pavement. Because of the cyclist’s unique vulnerability, a simple mistake by a negligent driver can cause a cyclist to suffer serious injuries, including:
- ‘Road rash’ or severe abrasions
- Broken bones
- Spinal injuries
- Dislocated joints
- Nerve damage
