Have You Been Hit By A Car When You Were Riding Your Bicycle?
Bicycle accidents in California are on the rise. Most riders will tell you that with more people than ever choosing this mode of transportation, the potential for injuries is higher than ever. The Law Offices of Max G. Arnold understands that even for those experienced riders, it can be a dangerous way to travel.
Bicycling has steadily grown in popularity. It provides a chance to exercise, and it’s eco-friendly. Unfortunately, heavy vehicular traffic doesn’t mesh well with the rise in bicycling popularity. When drivers don’t pay attention, a bicyclist can be at risk, and sometimes with a fatal outcome.

Special Considerations for Traffic Accidents Involving Bicycles
When a bicyclist is involved in an accident, there are additional questions to ask. Some of these are:
- Which side of the road was the bike rider on?
- Was a safety helmet worn by the biker?
- Did the accident occur when the bike rider was in a crosswalk on the street or on a sidewalk?
- Was the bike equipped with lights and other safety devices in compliance with the law?
- How did the driver behave around the bike? If the driver did not treat the biker as a vehicle, was there negligence on the driver’s part?
The answers to these questions will factor into the settlement of your case. To get yourself back on the road and work your way through the intricacies of your case, give The Law Offices of Max G. Arnold a call today.
