The negligence of drivers of cars often leads to bicycle accidents in which cyclists are hurt. One common cause of bicycle accidents is driver impairment because of alcohol or drugs. Drivers who are making left-hand turns are required to yield the right of way to others, but if a bicycle is not seen, a collision often occurs. A bicyclist who is riding past parked cars also risks colliding with a car door that is suddenly opened. The Roberts Law Firm of Newport Beach, California and its experienced attorneys will discover any negligence on the part of a driver that led to your bicycle accident injuries.
Bicycle accident injuries range in severity from minor abrasions and bruising to permanent brain damage and paralysis.

Many of these injuries require prolonged time off work.
