Los Angeles Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Collisions between cars and bicycles occur in many ways, including:
- Open car doors: When a driver opens his or her car door without first checking to see that no one is approaching, bicyclists can be knocked off their bikes and suffer serious injuries.
- Right or left turns: Motorists often make turns without looking for bicyclists. As a result, they strike bicyclists who have the right of way.
- Red lights: Drivers attempting to beat red lights can strike bicyclists while speeding through intersections.
- Lack of understanding of Los Angeles bike laws: Many drivers do not realize that bicyclists follow the same rules as vehicles, and need to give the same respect to bicyclists that they give to other drivers.
- Dangerous manuevers by Uber & Lyft Drivers: Hit by an Uber? Struck by a Lyft driver? These and other rideshare drivers are trying to maximize their earnings on the road. This can result in sudden stops and illegal manuevers extremely dangerous to bicylists.
