Injuries that result from being struck by a vehicle while on your bicycle or motorcycle are naturally very significant. Bicyclists and motorcyclists are at the mercy of the vehicles around them. Oftentimes, motorists are not even aware of bicyclists or motorcyclists around them whether on city streets or the congested Los Angeles freeways. Most bicyclists are not aware that the traffic laws of the California Vehicle Code apply equally to bicyclists. Because of this, insurance companies are very quick to place the blame on bicyclists and motorcyclists while completely ignoring the serious injuries that result from these types of collisions. Do not let the insurance companies beat you. Contact the Law Offices of Laurence P. Posner for advice from an experienced car accident attorney if you have been struck while riding a bicycle or motorcycle.
A common mistake that bicyclists make is that they ride their bicycle on the wrong side of the road against the flow of traffic. Or, oftentimes a bicyclist will ride their bicycle on the sidewalk. Since a bicyclist must obey the same laws as motor vehicles, insurance companies will jump at the chance to deny responsibility when a bicyclist is riding their bike on the wrong side of the road or on a sidewalk. Even if you suffer a catastrophic life altering injury, the insurance companies will not care. They will place 100% of the blame on you if you are riding on the wrong side of the road or the sidewalk.
