Injuries From Bike Accident
When riding a bicycle you may be at risk for injury because bicycles essentially provide no protection like that of a car, truck, or any other type of vehicle. A Los Angeles Bike Accident Lawyer can help you obtain compensation for any injuries suffered in an a bike accident.
Bicycle accidents can lead to very severe injuries such as:
- Neck and spine injuries
- Abdominal injuries
- Leg and knee injuries
- Nerve damage
- Dislocated joints
- Road rash
- Dental and jaw injuries
- Muscle damage
- Bone fractures
Every state has its own laws regulating the use of bicycles on public roadways. For example, California has many laws that require bicyclists to meet certain safety standards. In California, there is a requirement to use safety equipment. Specifically, minor bicyclists must use safety helmets. Other equipment requirements in California include:
- White or yellow reflectors that are visible from 300 feet;
- White safety lamps that are visible from 300 feet;
- White or yellow reflectors on each pedal, foot, or ankle, visible from the front and back of the bicycle and from 200 feet; and
- Red rear reflectors that are visible from 500 feet when in headlamps of an automobile.
