Bicycle Accidents in California
Auto accidents frequently take place in California. In fact, these accidents take the lives of thousands of people annually. Bicyclists are involved in approximately 4% of all fatal accidents. Thousands of other bicyclists are left with serious injuries that impact their lives forever.
When it comes to the cause of bicycle accidents, the majority of them are a result of drivers who fail to yield the right of way. Divers can fail to yield the right-of-way for many reasons. In most cases, drivers are simply not paying attention to their surroundings. There are many instances where they do not see bicyclists until it is too late.
Unfortunately, bicyclists who are involved in accidents are often left with significant injuries. One of the most common injuries that bicyclists offer is broken bones. These are often a result of being struck by vehicles or being ejected from the bike and striking other hard objects.
Road rash is another common injury that is generally caused by a bicyclist being ejected and sliding down the roadway. This type of injury can be incredibly painful and result in scarring and disfigurement.
Other common injuries reported in bicycle accidents include concussions, spinal cord injuries, and internal organ injuries.
