Today people of all ages are riding bicycles for exercise and pleasure. The increase in bike riding in Southern California brings with it an increase in bike accidents. Bicycle accidents can cause catastrophic injuries or death to cyclists, especially when involved with motor vehicles, because they ride with no physical protection except a helmet.
By following simple bicycle rules, you can avoid an accident:
· Follow the rules of the road - they apply to bicyclists as well as motorists
· Always signal properly
· Wear a helmet and make sure it fits securely
· Wear light-colored clothing
If you are a bicyclist who has been involved in an accident with a negligent motorist, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who can evaluate your claim, explain your legal rights, and advise you how to obtain compensation for pain, suffering and medical bills.
