Bicycle Accidents in California

California is home to many avid bicyclists.  With favorable weather and unique terrain, our state is a great place to enjoy bicycling as a hobby and for exercise.  While no one ever expects to be injured, all bicyclists must be aware of the possibility that a serious rash can occur each time they go for a ride.  When a bicycle accident does occur, the injuries are likely to be serious in nature as bicycles often cannot withstand the force of impact with large vehicles.
