Experienced Bicycle Accident Injury Lawyer
Southern California is home to beautiful weather, and many people enjoy
riding their bicycles to shops, the beach, or simply for exercise or fun.
Most bicycle riders are careful and pay close attention as they ride the
streets and neighborhoods in North San Diego County. Often, bicyclists
can become involved in an accident resulting in serious injury even though
they were following all operational laws.
A new law to help keep California bicycle riders safe took effect on September
16, 2014 as California Vehicle Code section 21760, which requires California
drivers to stay at least 3 feet away when passing bicyclists. Before then,
the law only required drivers to stay a safe distance away when passing
a bicyclist, but did not define how far a safe distance is. The new law
provides that if there is not 3 feet of space, then drivers must slow
down and wait until they can pass safely.
Unfortunately, many of these riders are injured by the cars, trucks, or
even the motorcycles that they share our roads with. It only takes a moment
of inattention or carelessness.
Bicyclists have little defense against the metal of a motor vehicle, and
the resulting collisions usually result in serious injuries including:
If you or someone you love has been injured while riding a bicycle in San
Diego, Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad, and the surrounding areas due to the
negligence of another motorist, it’s important to contact an experienced
and proven personal injury lawyer to protect your rights.
