California Roads are Dangerous for Cyclists

Bicycle traffic deaths are soaring and California leads the nation. Between 2010 and 2014, deaths involving bicyclists soared by 16%. California won the dubious recognition of being the most dangerous state in the nation for cyclists, with 338 people killed in collisions with automobiles.

According to the Berkely Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC)

  • Bicycle fatalities were highest in Fresno, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, San Joaquin, and Santa Clara counties
  • Bicycle serious injuries were highest in Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, and Santa Clara counties

California Road Laws to Protect Cyclists

New laws have been enacted to protect bikers from automobiles. The Three Feet for Safety Act requires motorists to provide bikers space to ride, or to slow down until it is prudent to pass if traffic or roadway conditions do not allow them to provide enough room.

Whether a driver failed to provide three feet of safety, or violated another roadway law that caused your injuries, RMD Law is equipped to fully investigate your accident and determine the liable party.

No two accidents are the same, but they all have one thing in common: they should never be handled without professional help.

Recent bad-faith settlements

RMD Law found an insurance code violation by the defense insurance company in a bicycle accident case. With smart lawyering, we used the violation to argue that the $100,000 policy limits no longer applied.

$5,100,000

Rollover Auto Accident

The insurance company wrongfully refused to pay our client the $100k policy limit in a rollover auto accident. RMD Law refused to take no for an answer, and filed a lawsuit alleging bad faith, ultimately winning millions for our deserving client.

$3,030,000

Auto v. Auto Settlement

Confidential bad faith settlement – a negligent driver t-boned our client at a red light resulting in severe spinal injuries. The defendant’s insurance company unreasonably refused to pay the $100K policy limit. RMD Law filed a lawsuit seeking the true value of the case. Policy was opened, and the client settled for an amount vastly higher than the original limits.

AVOIDING BICYCLE ACCIDENTS AND FATAL INJURIES

In a crash between a motor vehicle and a bicyclist, the latter is more vulnerable and more likely to be injured or killed. While California has laws to protect cyclists, each rider needs to do their part to help keep the roads safe and protect themselves from any untoward injuries.

Below are some tips to keep you safe:

WEAR A HELMET

Helmets can significantly reduce the risk of severe head injuries

OBEY TRAFFIC LAWS

This includes stopping at red lights and stop signs, yielding the right-of-way when required, and using appropriate hand signals for turns.

BE VISIBLE

Increase your visibility to motorists by wearing bright or reflective clothing, especially during low-light conditions.

RIDE PREDICTABLY

Avoid sudden swerves or lane changes without signaling.

USE BIKE LANES

If there are no designated facilities, ride in the same direction as traffic on the right side of the road.

TAKE CAUTION ON INTERSECTIONS

Slow down, scan for traffic, and make eye contact with drivers before proceeding.

WATCH FOR CAR DOORS

Stay vigilant for parked vehicles and be prepared for car doors opening unexpectedly.

BE AWARE OF BLIND SPOTS

Understand that large vehicles like trucks and buses have significant blind spots so try to stay out.

MAINTAIN YOUR BICYCLE

Regularly check your bicycle for proper functioning, including brakes, tires, and lights.

STAY FOCUSED

Avoid using headphones or mobile devices while riding.

COMMUNICATE YOUR INTENTIONS

Use hand signals to indicate your turns or lane changes and make eye contact with drivers to ensure they are aware of your presence and intentions

The lawyers at RMD are everything you could want. They are experts in their field, and extremely efficient, thorough and caring. They called me back immediately and spent a substantial amount of time explaining the process to me and quite honestly calming me down. I never felt pressured or felt a salesman vibe. I did get the sense that I was in good hands. They handled everything with minimal stress for me, which was key. Thanks for everything.

I have worked with John, a managing partner, and have been very happy with his casual every-man approach to some rather complex issues. He put things in plain, easy to digest language and made me feel comfortable with the process and his handle on the situation. Would definitely recommend.

John went above and beyond to assist me with my personal injury case after I was involved in a car accident. I spoke to several attorneys regarding my case and although I decided against hiring one due to the minor damages on my car, John was the only attorney I felt like I could trust. I was truly blown away by his kindness, honesty, and willingness to answer all of my questions and go over different options with me. He truly went above and beyond and showed a great amount of compassion and integrity. If I'm ever involved in an accident again, I will not hesitate to call John at RMD Law.

Frequently Asked Questions

In California, the statute of limitations for filing bicycle injury claims is two years from the date of the accident. This means that you have two years from the date of the bicycle accident to file a lawsuit in civil court.

However, it’s important to note that there are certain exceptions and circumstances that can affect the statute of limitations such as:

  • Discovery Rule – the victim is not immediately aware of the injury or it became apparent at a later date
  • Minors – Minors generally have two years from the date of their 18th birthday to file a personal injury claim.
  • Government claims – shorter timelines and additional requirements could be needed if the bicycle accident involved a government entity or employee

 

It’s best to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after a bicycle accident. Legal experts can provide you with accurate information regarding the statute of limitations specific to your case and guide you through the process.

At RMD Law, we believe that reputation is everything. When clients trust us with their cases, we do everything in our power to help guide them. That means personal service and sharp advocacy. We care about the details of your case because that is how we can get you the best settlement.
