California Bicycle Accident
Investigators are looking to establish liability by examining multiple factors. Whether or not the bicyclist was abiding by the rules of the road at the time of the accident will be investigated along with the actions of the motorist. Actions such as distracted driving, intoxication, and excessive speed are considered negligent, and should the investigation show that the driver was behaving irresponsibly behind the wheel, there may be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against them. Nevertheless, the choice to file a claim for financial compensation is a personal one that can only be made at the sole discretion of the victim.
