Ehline Bicycle Accidents

Bicycling is a commonplace form of portage, amusement and fitness from one end to the other in California State. Bicycles afford very limited protection from the day to day perils facing bicyclists on the roadways of the Golden State. Riding bikes can, and often does, pave the way to moderate injuries to riders on the low range, to severe harm and loss of life on the high range. The catastrophic injuries to bicyclists from roadway accidents are tragically higher among kids, and school aged children. Victims of bicycle smash ups face unique challenges, both medically and legally, when one is trying to get paid by the person(s) who negligently caused these injuries. Plus, under the laws of California and local municipal codes, require riders or their legal representatives to have specialized training and experience concerning the duties, rights and obligations of bicyclists throughout the state.

The vast majority of bicycle accident claims Ehline Law typically faces, comprise of fact patterns where there is contact between riders and passenger care who are guilty of failing to yield the right-of-way at an intersection, such as when a cyclist is cut off by a sudden, un-telegraphed turn by a vehicle directly into the path of an oncoming bicyclist. Typically car drivers , misjudge the speed of the bike, or do not see the bike, and thus, misjudge the safe space they should allocate in order for safe passage. Often, motorists, fail to fairly share the road, or a large vehicle like a bis or truck is not paying attention to smaller objects like bikes in their blind spots. This has forced many a rider into a curb, or onto a sidewalk, or other fixed object, to their doom. This visibility issue is a huge danger to riders.

Bicycle mishaps on roads are also caused based upon other forces, many of them being particular to the utilization of this unique machine used for transportation. Bicycle accidents often happen from or are exacerbated by coincidental factors such as poorly designed roads, negligent repair, signage or maintenance. These factors often lead to limited, or severely impaired vision of the poor road and path conditions. Other negative conditions riders face are things like loos gravel, trash, oil spills, potholes, and other road debris. Riders make easy targets for loose dogs, and many a fallen rider has fallen victim to packs of dogs pulling the down and tearing them to pieces. One of the atypical twists facing California riders, occurs after an unreasonable motorist negligently opens their car door into the path of a bicycle rider. Another stroke of bad luck very common in large cities like Los Angeles, is when person on foot is slammed into by a bicycle delivery service, such as a process server, or legal messenger, and even a food delivery service who hires out riders.
