How Cycling Accidents Happen
Bicycle accidents occur most often when drivers fail to see the bicyclist or observe the right of way. In many cases, the driver is distracted, texting, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In some bicycle accidents, a driver simply does not look and sideswipes the bicycle rider when changing lanes or turning.
Bicycle accident injuries are often permanent and can radically alter the victim’s life. Let the Law Office of Michael D. Waks ensure your rights are protected and the negligent party is held accountable. Call (562) 206-1939 to discuss your case.
