South Bay Bicycle Accident Attorney
Torrance Bike Injury Lawyers
A beautiful bike ride through Torrance, Hollywood Riviera, Rolling Hills and Palos Verdes, biking to work in Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Santa Monica, or along the San Pedro roadways … the South Bay area is a perfect location for biking. Unfortunately, every year dozens of bikers suffer serious injury or death after being struck by vehicles.
In many cases, it was the driver of the car that collided with the biker who was at fault …
- For failing to pay attention
- For drifting into the bike lane
- For opening a car door into an oncoming bike
- For making a sudden left turn in front of an oncoming bike, or
- For crowding the biker out of the lane the cyclist can lawfully occupy.
Cell phone usage and texting, although they are illegal, are still huge problems resulting in distracted drivers and injured bicyclists.
The police have a duty to investigate motor vehicle-bicycle accidents resulting in serious or fatal injuries. Unfortunately, the police are not always as thorough as they should be. Some police officers routinely find bikers at fault for their injuries. They aren't alone. There is strong public sentiment against bikers and it's often terribly unfair.
