CARLSBAD BICYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
Southern California is the mecca for cycling. Drive down Highway 101 anywhere in San Diego County and you will find professionals, amateurs and even casual cyclists that are just looking for a good work out. Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as vehicles on the roadway, yet many times are not given the respect they deserve. Consequently, cyclists are hit at an alarming rate and because they clearly have no protection whatsoever, the resulting injuries are typically severe.
Fortunately, over the past decade or so, local and state law makers have passed laws that are cyclist friendly. In turn, our roadways have more designated bicycle lanes, signs and pavement markings that increase safety. Despite these improvements, driver negligence injures and kills cyclists all the time. If you or one of your loved ones has been a victim, give us a call, as are experienced in bicycle accident cases.
