Who Is To Blame When Bicycle Accidents In Manhattan Beach Happen?  

The City of Manhattan Beach urges bicyclists to take precautions, such as using a helmet when riding, wearing light, bright colors to increase visibility, and following all traffic signs and signals. Unfortunately, despite these precautions, bicycle accidents in Manhattan Beach can still happen. The reckless and negligence actions of motorists are often to blame.  

Our Manhattan Beach bicycle accident attorneys help you hold them responsible and get the compensation you need to recover in a claim. Among the most common causes of bicycle accidents in cases Harris Personal Injury Lawyers handle include:  

  • Aggressive driving, such as failing to yield to bicyclists, cutting them off in traffic, and tailgating; 
  • Disregarding traffic signs and signals, such as running red lights or stop signs; 
  • Distracted driving, which involves texting, talking on cellphones, or engaging in any activity that diverts your attention from the road; 
  • Driving under the influence, which includes alcohol, recreational drugs, and medications; 
  • Going too fast for conditions and speeding, which increases not only the risk of bicycle accidents but the severity of injuries.
