Did you know that California has more cyclists than any other state in the country? While cycling is a great way to stay active, healthy and environmentally friendly, sharing the road with motor vehicles does carry some element of risk. Common causes of bicycle accidents include drivers who are texting or talking on cell phones, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or simply don't see the cyclist until it's too late.
When a bicycle is involved in a collision with a car, truck, motorcycle or another vehicle, the result will almost always be severe injuries or death. If you or a loved one were involved in a bicycle accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Common Types of Bicycle Accident Injuries
Even for cyclists who survive bicycle accidents, their injuries are usually severe, as they don't have the protection of a vehicle around them. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Broken bones and fractures
- Cuts, scrapes, lacerations and contusions
- Spinal cord injuries, which often result in paralysis or mobility issues
- Traumatic brain injuries, which can have debilitating effects
- Amputations of limbs
Depending on the severity of the injuries, a cyclist may have to visit the emergency room, stay in the hospital for an extended period of time, undergo surgery and/or participate in ongoing physical therapy sessions. All of the associated expenses can quickly add up, and insurance companies aren't likely to cover the costs unless an attorney is working on behalf of the cyclist.
