Were you in a bike accident with a vehicle in Pasadena?
The general rule of bicycle traffic is that motorists and cyclists must
share the road and each take reasonable measures to avoid endangering
themselves and others. In California, the Vehicle Code states that bicyclists
must ride as far to the right as possible unless they are passing another
bike, making a left-hand turn, or avoiding obstructions. If you were following
these regulations when you were hit by a motor vehicle, you deserve to
personal injury cases, liability is found on the grounds of negligence. This means that
if a party was acting in a manner that that was careless, or failed to
perform their due responsibilities at the time of the accident, he or
she shall be liable for any damages. If a driver failed to share the road
with you as a bicyclist according to the California Vehicle Code, he or
she should be held responsible for your injuries.
