Bicycle Accident Lawyer for Orange County Cyclists and Their Families

It is a too common sight in Orange County. You are driving down a busy street, usually one where there’s a bicycle lane, and you come across a roadside memorial. Flowers and other mementos mark the spot where a member of our community was killed by a careless motorist. The memorial also bears witness to the other victims of the accident, those who will have to go on without their beloved family member or dear friend.

Bicycle Crash Attorney Orange County: Causes of Injury Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists are run down from all directions by drivers who are not looking for them, even when there’s a bicycle lane with signs clearly posted. People do not check their rearview mirrors before opening a car door. Drivers run down cyclists at intersections, usually without even thinking to look for a cyclist crossing the street before they make a turn.

One of the deadliest accidents you can be in is a bicycle/car accident. Because of this, many people are afraid of cycling and with good reason. Bike to Death, a 2014 article in the OC Voice, stated that both Los Angeles and Orange County officials are working to make cycling safer. The main action that could make bicyclists safer would be for drivers of other vehicles to watch out for cyclists.

Frequently after a car hits a bicyclist the driver flees the scene of the accident instead of stopping to assist the victim. Leaving an accident scene and an injured party is a felony crime under California Vehicle Code § 20001.
