Why Car versus Bicycle Accidents Occur
Driver distraction, speeding and drunk driving are the primary contributing factors to all types of traffic accidents. In bicycle accidents in particular, the driver of a car may simply not be aware of a bicyclist's presence on the road until it is too late. Most drivers focus mainly on other vehicles when changing lanes, making turns or merging into traffic and may not even notice a bicycle rider - turning directly into the bicyclist's path or otherwise colliding with the rider.
Additional potential causes of car versus bicycle accidents may include poorly designed roads, faulty traffic lights, poor road maintenance, a defective product, or negligence on the part of a bicycle rider. At Pacific Attorney Group, we handle all types of bicycle and car accident claims throughout the Bakersfield area, whether you may be the driver of the car or the bicycle rider and regardless of the circumstances of your accident.
