Unfortunately, drivers often don’t give enough respect to bicycle riders. Bicyclists, however, share equal rights to those who drive a car, truck, or motorcycle on California roadways. Through the negligence, inattentiveness or willfulness of other motor vehicle drivers, injuries may occur.
Bicyclists who are involved in even a minor bicycle accident will often suffer far greater injury than those in a car or other motor vehicle collision. Bicyclists who are hit by a car, even at low speeds, generally suffer serious injuries including broken bones, lacerations, brain damage, severe bleeding or even death.
