Fatal Bicycle Accidents in California

A vast majority of bicyclists who were hit and killed by vehicles were discovered to be men over the age of 40, according to researchers. Irrespective of either gender or age, bicycle accidents in California are inclined to end with catastrophic or often fatal injuries due to the immense defenselessness of the victim. Devastating accidents can take place at almost any time, leaving victims and their families with severe suffering, as well as extremely high and unfair costs.
