LOS ANGELES BIKE ACCIDENT LAWYER
It is important to hire an experienced Los Angeles bicycle accident lawyer if you have been injured in a bike accident. Angelenos have been cycling in greater numbers due to the availability of more bike paths on roadways and as a form of open-air exercise.
However, riding a bicycle on the streets of Los Angeles comes with risks. Bicycles are not as stable or durable as cars so a pothole, oil slick, puddle, or debris in the road can cause a bicyclist. Bicycles are also much smaller than cars, which means they can be harder for motorist and pedestrians to see.
Causes Of Bicycle Accidents
Most bike crashes are caused by negligent motorists and bicyclists. Some motorists fail to yield the right of way, others fail to check their blind spots and far too many motorists are distracted by their cell phones. Consequently, bicyclists have a high risk of being involved in an accident with a car or truck.
At the Pacitti Law Firm, we handle all types of bicycle accidents, no matter the cause. If you or a loved one was involved in a motorcycle or bicycle accident, contact an experienced Los Angeles bicycle accident lawyer to get started on your case.
