bicycle bracelets

In Los Angeles, where there are many places teeming with pedestrians and cyclists, lawyers that are specializing or are knowledgeable in handling bicycle accidents like bike crashes, are not too hard to find. The only criteria to retain the best are experience and knowledge of the bicycle accident and personal injury laws.

Pedestrians and bicycle riders are usually very vulnerable to sustaining injuries or being killed because of accidents wherein motor vehicles crash, collides or rub over bicycles. The problem is that, even if the cyclist is riding lawfully in the crosswalk or on the green "walk" sign, some car or other vehicle drivers are oblivious of them.

Other drivers are not even aware that their vehicles have rubbed over or hit a bicycle. Some are not aware of the rights of bicyclists on the roads and this ignorance leads to them not being more careful around bicycles in general.

Ever since 2004, the NHTSA or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released information that there were more or less 5,000 deaths reported as a result of automobile versus pedestrian or bicycle accidents.

The fact that annually, there are more than 78,000 pedestrians and bicycle riders who sustain injuries show that a lot of drivers still have to be educated about being extra careful. In a bicycle crash, the cyclist is the one who suffer greatly, more than the vehicle drivers do. There are no seatbelts, roll cage and air bags.

If you have been injured as a result of a car versus bike crash accident, under the California laws, you are granted with the considerable rights to be compensated for the expenses you incurred and the pain and suffering you felt.

You can be compensated of the medical expenses, future medical treatments and expenses, property damages, lost income, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment in life for the future, and/or temporary or permanent disability. You can also be granted with punitive damages, wherein the liable and at fault party is directed to give payment as a punishment and warning for their carelessness, ignorance of the laws, and/or obliviousness.
