Fatal Bicycle Accidents in California

The majority of bicyclists who were hit and killed in collisions with motor vehicles were found to be adult males over 40-years-old. Of course, despite age or gender, bicycle accidents in California recurrently result in terribly serious and often fatal injuries due to the defenselessness of cyclists at the time of impact. Devastating collisions can occur at almost any time, leaving victims and their families with immense pain and suffering on top of extremely high and unfair expenses.
