Fatal Bicycle Accidents in California
In 2021, more than 3,500 people lost their lives in motor vehicle accidents. More than 450 victims are using bicycles at the time of their accidents. People who are harmed in crashes while using bicycles are more likely to suffer catastrophic and fatal injuries. Cyclists are not afforded adequate protection during crashes. As a result, they are at significant risk of suffering blunt-force trauma, severe spinal cord injuries, and even severe injuries that ultimately take their lives.
When victims lose their lives in bicycle crashes, families are often torn apart and struggle to move forward. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is mentally and emotionally exhausting. Knowing that they lost their life in an accident that could have been prevented just makes the grieving process even more challenging. When people are fatally injured in crashes, due to the negligence of others, their families should seek the guidance of a knowledgeable Charter Oak wrongful death lawyer right away.
