Due to California’s relatively mild weather and the fact that you can enjoy the great outdoors during almost any season, Los Angeles and many other California cities have become wonderful places for people to go walking, running, and biking. With bicycle trails and bicycle lanes being regularly added throughout the state, riding your bicycle to and from work, for exercise, as a greener mode of transportation, or for sheer enjoyment, has become a very popular thing to do.
Unfortunately not all motorists keep their eyes out for bicyclists. Even when you exercise safety precautions such as wearing a bicycle helmet, reflective clothing and shoes, or adding reflective stickers, bicycle lights and other accessories to your bike, following the rules of the road, and more, you may find yourself the victim of a serious bicycle accident.
Bicycle accidents are capable of causing extremely painful, and frequently life-threatening, injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis or serious internal organ damage. It is due to these injuries, and the lack of protection afforded to bicyclists, that it is not uncommon for a bicycle accident victim to face very expensive medical bills, multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation costs. In cases where the insurance company refuses to pay, or denies the claim, the accident victim is forced to pay out of pocket for their injuries.
