Injured in a bike accident?

Today, because of the high price of gasoline, many individuals are relying on different types of transportation to get them to their destination. Because of the beautiful weather that California brings most of the year, many people rely on getting to their destination by using a bicycle.

Did you know that there are approximately 500,000 injuries associated with bicycles each year in the United States? As a matter of fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that a person dies every six hours from a bike accident - many are children.

The most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • A motorist did not see the bicyclist
  • Driver ran a red light or stop sign
  • Driver is under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Vehicle driving too close to the bike

Injuries sustained can be serious and include brain injury, broken bones, paralysis and internal injuries.

If you were injured by a motorist while on your bicycle, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries. Contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who will investigate your case and fight for your legal rights.
