Bicyclists Are Vulnerable To Serious Injuries

Bicycles and pedestrians have rights on the road just like all motor vehicles. But, if you are riding a bicycle and get struck by a car, you will suffer severe injuries and deserve to be compensated for damages, including medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Even if you do not think you have a case, contact us at 951-289-0628. Making an inquiry with an attorney will not obligate you to pursue legal action, but it may give you a different perspective and change your mind.

California’s driving laws specify that motorists must be careful of people on bicycles, scooters and motorcycles and treat them as if they are another car on the road. Motorists must not drive in designated bicycle lanes and motorists making right-hand turns must yield to cyclists.

At the Ellis Firm, APLC, we focus on personal injury cases and are dedicated to providing individualized attention to your bicycle injury case. We represent people throughout Southern California in a wide variety of personal injury cases, to include fatal accidents and wrongful death claims.
