Did negligence cause a bicycle accident?

In California, it is common to see cyclists on the roadways, sidewalks and bike paths and in residential areas. Due to the convenience of this mode of transportation, some residents use bicycles as their primary source for getting around. However, just like motorists, bikers are tasked with following rules while traveling on or near the roadways. When an accident involving an automobile and a bike occurs, it is important to determine what the cause was, who was at fault and if negligence played a role.

The severity of wrong-way crashes

Operating a motor vehicle is a common activity by most California residents. However, this activity is a privilege. It is a privilege that requires individuals to follow the rules of the road. This standard helps ensure safety on the roadways. Unfortunately, some motorists do not comply with this, resulting in serious and life-threatening collisions to occur.

When traveling on the roads, it is clear that dangers exist. Drivers could be distracted, fatigued, reckless and even intoxicated. This puts other drivers and passengers at risk. However, these same dangers exist to those near the roadways. Specifically, when a pedestrian is walking at a nearby sidewalk or traveling through a crosswalk. When a driver is not driving safe, those nearby are put at risk.

What can you do following a hit-and-run accident?

People avoid situations for one of two reasons. One, they believe that the matter does not involve them, so they cut themselves from the situation. Two, they do not want to face the reality of the matter or endure penalties for it. These two reasons could help explain why a person might leave the scene of an accident. They may not believe they caused it and do not want to be involved, or they know they are at fault and do not want to face the consequences.

Recovering the compensation you deserve following an accident

When we pass by other motorists, we do not often think about where they might be going or what they might be doing inside their vehicles. However, when we are at a stop sign or signal, we often get a glimpse of what the drivers around us are doing. One might be singing along to the radio, another might be taking a sip of their coffee. While these are common acts for motorists in California and elsewhere to do, there are some common acts that are extremely dangerous to do behind the wheel of a vehicle. Texting while driving is considered very hazardous, and its dangers are equated to those associated with drunk driving.
