Bicycle Accidents in Los Angeles
In Los Angeles, bicycling may appear to be a safe means of transportation, but there are many dangers that come with riding a bicycle. Cyclists must deal with similar road dangers that drivers face, including road hazards, bad weather conditions, and drunk drivers. In addition, bicyclists may experience fatal collisions with larger vehicles including SUVs, trucks, and even 18 wheel big rigs.
When colliding with these larger vehicles, bicyclists have a likelihood of suffering from severe injuries and even death. When colliding with large, metal-made vehicles, bicyclists pose a small chance of suffering from just minor injuries. Most bicycling injuries result in: brain damage, spinal injuries, and fractures.
Being defensive and extra cautious is crucial when bicycling. But even so, accidents can still occur. If a bicyclist manages to dodge an oncoming vehicle, the bicyclist may accidentally swerve into property or a parked vehicle. In doing so, the bicyclist may obtain injuries or damage other property in the process.
Many bicyclists choose to wear helmets and elbow and knee pads. This practice does help to prevent injuries in minor accidents, but help very little when involved in major collisions with vehicles. However, it is extremely imperative to always wear a helmet and protective gear while bicycling in Los Angeles.
With protective gear, defects can occur and are sometimes responsible for inadequately protecting the bicyclist. A product can even cause more harm to the bicyclist just by being defective. When this occurs, a Los Angeles bicycle accident attorney can help you with any defective productive liability claims. The attorney will work to compensate you against the manufacturer.
