Bicycle Accidents In Palm Springs, the Entire Coachella Valley and Throughout California
California offers beautiful weather for cycling, yet every year, nearly 150 cyclists lose their lives in traffic accidents. California laws give cyclists the right to share the road with cars and trucks, however these vehicles are vastly overpowered when placed aside a car or truck on a crowded highway. When sharing the road, cyclists must follow the same traffic laws as other vehicles, which include obeying traffic signs and signals. They must also ride in the same direction as traffic.
Today in California, motorists are required to give bicycle riders three feet of safety, yet as one drives down the highway, most motorists still seem unaware of the new law or feel the bicyclist needs to be riding so close to the curb so as to cause them to crash the moment one of their pedals touches the curb.
A great many bicycle accidents often occur at intersections, during turns, and when vehicles are merging or changing lanes. Other motorists may not see or may ignore a cyclist, or may try to pass them without enough distance. The roads can also be full of potholes and debris, which makes it unsafe and difficult for cyclists to pass. In any case, the results for cyclists can be disastrous.
Serious Consequences Of Bicycle Accidents
Cyclists often find themselves subject to debilitating injuries as a result of these collisions:
- Fractures to arms, legs, and ribs
- Concussions and closed head injuries
- Spinal injuries including herniated discs
- Concussion and severe abrasions on road rash
- Internal bleeding and injuries to vital organs
Even when a cyclist is wearing a helmet, protective clothing and their bicycle is fitted with proper safety equipment; bicycle accidents have the potential to cause great harm. Victims are likely to need extensive medical care as well as compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering.

When you are injured in a cycling accident, you may have serious injuries that can lay you up, prevent you from working, and have long-term consequences.
