Have you been injured in a bicycle accident in Orange County? Riding a bicycle is a fast, healthy and affordable mode of transportation, which is why many California residents choose to ride them. Bicycles have become increasingly popular over time, which is why certain cities have designated bike lanes designed to keep bicyclists safe. In Orange County, the roads are shared between bicycles, cars, trucks and motorcycles, making it very crowded and hard to maneuver around. This can be especially dangerous for bicycle riders because you have the least amount of protection from the surrounding elements. Bicyclists are not surrounded by protective metal and barriers which means that they are the first to sustain injuries in the event of a collision.
Even though California has bicycle lanes set apart and has clear traffic laws that give bicyclists the right of way in most cases, there are still many drivers who act negligently and carelessly around bicyclists.
There are hundreds of people that are injured or killed in bicycle accidents every year in California. Not to mention, there are at least 500,000 bicycles brought in for treatment for injuries sustained in a bicycle accident.
