Bicycle riders are subject to the same traffic laws and have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of other motor vehicles.
They also have a responsibility to familiarize themselves with bike safety measures and are required to follow specific laws and regulations for bicyclists, such as having proper helmets or being visible to other drivers at night. Although the best way to handle a bike accident is to prevent it in the first place, collisions do occur, often resulting in serious injuries or death.
Our personal injury lawyers and attorneys in Los Angeles have discovered there are often cases where bicycle accidents occur not because of the fault of the bicyclist, but of other drivers.
