Bicycle Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries
The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) keeps track of all traffic accident statistics for the state, and they report that 147 bicyclists were killed and nearly 12,000 were injured during the latest reporting year. Due to the fact that cyclists have little protection from the force of a vehicle slamming into them, it is not uncommon for our Upland bicycle accident lawyer to encounter the following injuries:
In many cases, these incidents happen in areas where the bicyclist has the right of way, including intersections, bike paths, on the right side of the roadways, and more. Impaired and distracted drivers pose significant dangers to cyclists, as do those who ignore traffic laws.
