If you have recently traveled to a large populated California city, you likely have seen the streets and sidewalks littered with bicycles. Yes, bicycles. Bikes are now on every corner in San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Lime Bikes and Jump Bikes are just two popular companies who have adopted similar business models to the infamous rideshare companies, Uber and Lyft. Like rideshare companies, these bike-share companies allow you to unlock a bicycle with an app and give you the freedom to ride that bike where ever you please. You are charged by the minute and can leave the bike anywhere you want when you are done riding!
Due to the influx of bike-share companies in these highly dense and populated areas, the risk of getting into an accident, with a motor vehicle is at an all-time high. All bicyclists must share the road with cars, and vice versa. Not only are people getting injured on the bikes, pedestrians have a greater risk of injury now that these bicyclists are everywhere. Whether you are a victim of an auto v. bike accident or have been injured by a bike share rider, it is important to reach out to a qualified bicycle accident attorney to protect your rights.
