Bicycle Accidents in California

Recently compiled data has identified the majority of bicyclists who are fatally struck by vehicles as men over 40-years-old. Albeit, bicycle accidents in California regularly end with serious or life-ending injuries simply because of the vulnerability of bicyclists, irrespective of gender or age. Catastrophic collisions can happen at nearly any time, leaving victims and their families with immense suffering, as well as enormously high and unjust expenses.
