San Diego Bicycle Injury Accident Attorney and San Diego Bike Accident Lawyer
When bicycles and cars collide, the results can be catastrophic. Fractures, permanent disfigurement, brain damage or death are common results when a bicycle is struck by a vehicle. Most bicycle accidents occur when a cyclist’s right of way is violated or where a motorist simply never sees the bicyclist. Bicyclists have the same right to use and occupy the roadway as a motor vehicle and are subject to the same rules of the road. Motorists often forget this or completely disregard the rights of a bicyclist resulting in accidents or injuries.
Bicycle accident cases can often be challenging in terms of liability because oftentimes the driver never sees the cyclist before the impact. Bicycle accident cases require prompt and thorough investigation before there are changes to the roadway or before physical evidence disappears forever. Many cases require accident reconstruction or other expert analysis. Bicycle injury victims often need specialized medical care as a result of their injuries and these injuries often result in significant financial damages.
