California Bicycle Accident
Authorities are actively working to piece together the events that led to the victims’ injuries. The investigation will aim to establish the actions of those involved prior to the accident. Was the bicyclist riding in a bicycle lane? Did the driver act negligently in any way such as speeding excessively, driving while intoxicated, or operating a handheld device while behind the wheel?
Determining whether or not one of the parties involved had acted irresponsibly may help the victim find grounds for a personal injury claim. Albeit, even in the event that the investigation shows fault on behalf of the motorist, the decision to file a claim is still a very personal matter for the victim.
