California Cycling Laws
The state of California has specific laws pertaining to bicyclists. If you are a motor vehicle driver, you must pay close attention to bicyclists. As a bicyclist, though, it is important to know that while you are allowed to ride on the street, you must act as drivers, obeying traffic signs, yielding to pedestrians, and riding with traffic. You must also be sure your bike has a brake, you are wearing a helmet, and you have the proper safety precautions such as lights and reflectors.
If the motorist was to blame for the injury-causing accident, you can hold him or her accountable for their actions. As long as you follow the laws for cycling, we can help you make a claim that is strong and seeks the damages owed to you.
