Pleasanton Bike Accident Lawyers
Bike Accident Information
There are many reasons for which
bicycle accidents happen, and, in many cases, the incident stems from the reckless or negligent
actions of someone other than the bicycle rider. Bicycles and cars on
the same road can be a disastrous mix, and, when an accident does happen,
it is the bicyclist who suffers the most damaging injuries. Simple actions
like opening a car door without looking can leave bicyclists with severe
injuries. Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol puts everyone
on the road at risk, especially bicyclists who are more vulnerable than
car drivers are.
Bicycle and bicycle parts manufactures have a responsibility to make sure
the bikes and parts they put out to consumers are safe, but they do not
always take the necessary quality control precautions. Defective brakes,
tires or gearshifts can all have devastating consequences if they malfunction
at a crucial moment.
Bicycle accidents happen more often than we would like to acknowledge.
While most of the time, there is no serious damage, occasionally, riders
sustain serious injuries or someone loses a life. If you have suffered
a bicycle accident injury, it is imperative that you contact a personal
injury attorney. A bicycle accident injury lawyer can assess your case
to determine whether you have a legitimate claim to compensation and chart
the best route for recovering monetary damages.
