Understanding How California Bicycle Laws Affect Your Case

Under the California Vehicle Code, bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as all other vehicle operators. Drivers of motor vehicles are legally required to respect the fact that bicycles, even though they may be slower and smaller, have every right to be on the road.

If you were hit by an impatient or otherwise negligent driver while riding a bicycle, you may have a right to compensation from that driver’s insurance company.

Of course, bicyclists are also expected to observe all the same traffic laws as everyone else. However, violating a traffic regulation does not give someone else the right to hit you. Drivers must make reasonable efforts to avoid bicycle accidents.

Even if an illegal action occurred, such as riding on a sidewalk or crossing at a red light, the other driver may still be legally responsible for the accident.

Seeking Compensation for Serious Injuries

Since bicycles offer no protection from outside forces, these accidents often result in catastrophic injuries and even fatalities. The lawyers at our firm are experienced in aggressively pursuing the maximum appropriate damages for injured bicyclists and their families.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
