With the high prices of gasoline today, many people have turned to bike riding, which is one of the healthiest and most enjoyable recreational sports in California today.
However, there are inherent dangers to riding a bike, especially considering the lack of physical protection that a cyclist has. California law requires everyone who rides a bicycle to wear a helmet. Helmets can prevent a majority of serious head injuries should a crash occur.
When a vehicle traveling at a high speed collides with a cyclist, he or she could be thrown from the point of impact and suffer catastrophic injuries, including broken bones, brain and/or spine injury. This can result in extensive treatments lasting for years – with a detrimental effect on the victim’s life.
If you are a cyclist who has been involved in an accident involving a motor vehicle, you need the help of a competent attorney to assist you in winning the compensation you deserve. You don’t want to end up facing financial stress as you try to pay your extensive medical bills on your own.
