Bicycle Accidents in Van Nuys

Van Nuys, CA - Bicyclist Killed in Crash on Victory Blvd

The main cause of critical injuries and death among bike riders in California is speeding cars and trucks. Even tiny jumps in speed over the legal limit turn into massive raises in the level of the risk of fatality in a car accident. Speeding also increases a vehicle’s impact and stopping distance.

In some instances, circumstances not related to cars result in bicycle accidents. These circumstances include road hazards, insufficient signage on construction sites, debris from construction sites, loose gravel, or loose sand on road surfaces, and other hazardous driving situations.

The bicycle accident attorneys at the Los Angeles Injury Group have spent decades assisting victims of California bicycle accidents in recovering the financial losses that they have endured and are entitled to collect according to the law.
