Common Causes of San Diego Area Bicycle Accidents
A large number of accidents occur because of carelessness. Drivers do not watch out for the bicyclist on the road. Narrow bicycling lanes sometimes play a part in the dangers for the bicyclist, but mostly inattentive drivers cause the accidents. Some incidents occur because bicyclists try to listen to music and do other things while they are riding. What ends up happening is that they run into parked cars. In some rare instances, manufacturer defects cause bicycling accidents in California. Defects in bicycle chains, spokes, frames and pedal issues can be the culprits in such cases.
What Constitutes Neglect in a Bicycle Accident?
Neglect occurs in any accident when a person fails to look out for another person’s best interests. Neglect can occur when a party does something that causes harm to the other person, as well. An example of a neglectful act that can cause a bicycle accident is drinking and driving. Speeding can cause an accident by not allowing the vehicle driver enough time to stop before a collision.
