Bicycle Accident in Pasadena
Our thoughts are with the injured bicyclist and we certainly hope for a quick recovery.
Bicyclists are a prominent site on California roadways. As the nation’s most populous state with many urban areas, it is common to encounter bicyclists out and about on a daily basis.
Drivers must always be alert for bicyclists and pedestrians. The rules of the road should always be observed so as to lessen the potential of a serious crash. This includes avoiding dangerous driving behaviors such as speeding, driving while impaired and texting while driving.
When a bicyclist is injured in a collision with a vehicle the bicyclist may have a legal right to recover for injuries. If the vehicle driver was negligent in hitting the bicyclist, then the bicyclist has the right to bring a claim for personal injury. In California, a personal injury claim includes compensation for injuries sustained in the crash, lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
The most serious bicycle accidents can have long-term effects, including permanent injuries and even death in serious cases. As a general rule, accidents tend to be more severe due to the fact that the bicycle offers little protection in case of a vehicle crash.
