Bakersfield, CA – Bicyclist Hurt in Crash at Oswell and Potomac

bicycle accident attorneysBakersfield, CA (July 24, 2018) – A bicyclist suffered injuries after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday afternoon.  The crash happened at the intersection of Oswell Street and Potomac Avenue.  California Highway Patrol was called to the scene just after 1:00 pm regarding an accident with injuries.

After arriving at the accident scene, Officers soon discovered that the bicyclist was injured in the crash.  Paramedics also responded to the scene to treat the bicyclist.  The bicyclist was not immediately identified by police.   Additionally, the nature and extent of the bicyclist’s injuries have not been revealed.

Police have not released any additional details surrounding the crash and the accident remains under investigation by the California Highway Patrol. It is unclear whether the driver of the vehicle will face any charges for their role in causing the crash.

California Bicycle Accidents

There are many bicyclists across Southern California.  With a population of nearly 4 million residents, Los Angeles is the second most populated city in the United States.  This means that many types of pedestrians are out and about every day, including bicyclists.  Drivers must remember to be alert for bicyclists during their daily travels.  They should follow all rules of the road and exercise caution to avoid a crash.  Similarly, the bicyclist must also observe traffic laws to lower their risk of being involved in a crash.

When a bicyclist is injured in a collision with a vehicle, the first question is whether negligence can be established.  If the vehicle driver was negligent in hitting the bicyclist, then the bicyclist may have a claim for personal injuries.  A personal injury claim includes compensation for injuries sustained in the crash, including lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.

The long-term effects of a bicycle accident may take the form of permanent and lingering injuries.  Bicycle accidents tend to be more severe due to the fact that the bicycle offers little protection in case of a vehicle crash.
