What Are Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents In Marina Del Rey?  

California Healthline warns that there has been an alarming increase in the number of bike accidents in recent years. Los Angeles County is the most common place for them to happen.

This includes obeying the rules of the road as well as wearing a helmet and other safety gear.  

When bicycle accidents do occur, it is generally due to negligence on the part of motorists. At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our Marina Del Rey bicycle accident attorneys help you hold them accountable. Among the most common causes in cases we represent include:  

  • Distracted driving, such as talking on cell phones or sending texts; 
  • Driving under the influence, which includes alcohol, recreational drugs, or medications; 
  • Failing to give adequate space to bicyclists and swerving into bike lanes; 
  • Failing to yield to bicyclists who have the right of way; 
  • Making turns without looking to see if a bicyclist is in their path; 
  • Opening car doors on side streets, without checking for bicyclists first; 
  • Speeding and going too fast for conditions, which increases the risk of bicycle accidents and the severity of injuries.
