Bike accident injuries are all too common and costly

Bicyclists, both avid enthusiasts and those simply enjoying a leisurely ride, are plentiful on California city and suburban streets, sidewalks and trails. Unfortunately, the popularity of bicycling also leads to a great number of bike accident injuries. Such an accident can occur for any number of reasons, and the possibility of suffering serious injuries -- or worse -- is very real.

Examples of negligent car drivers include those who are distracted, such as texting while driving or reaching to pick up something dropped on the floor of the vehicle. Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol is a significant risk to cyclists. Dangers are not limited to vehicle operators, either, as missing or defective street signage or improperly maintained vehicles could also result in a bicycle accident.

The injuries suffered can wreak havoc financially. Grounds may exist for civil claims to seek recovery of any monetary losses. Medical bills can quickly become exorbitant, and even moderate injuries can be expensive to treat. A debilitating accident can truly alter the life of a victim and of his or her family.

When bike accident injuries derail the health and finances of a victim, that person may not know where to turn or what rights he or she may have. A California lawyer can help determine whether a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit is appropriate and what kind of compensation may be necessary to ensure the care of a victim or the care of a family left behind. Our firm has more information online about these types of accidents and what kind of assistance is available.
