Over the past decade, cycling has established itself firmly in southern California and elsewhere as more than a trend but a genuine lifestyle. It seems as if more and more people are taking to the streets with their bicycles to commute to work, exercise, and travel. And while it is a positive development that people are choosing to get fit and contribute to a better global environment, more bicycles on the roads means more crashes which, in turn, means more injuries and fatalities, most of which are caused by negligent motorists who don’t exercise proper caution around bicyclists.

Common Bicycle Accident Scenarios

The following scenarios are the most common among bicycle-car collisions:

  • Left Hand Turn Collision: Vehicle Code section 21801(a) states that all drivers attempting a left hand turn must first check for and yield to any vehicles coming from the opposite direction, including bicycles. Unfortunately, there are moments when the driver does not see a bicyclist coming and crashes into them while making a left turn.
  • Sideswipe Collision: All motorists are expected to give bicyclists enough space when passing. However, some motorists get impatient and attempt extremely risky passes, which can result in a sideswipe collision or the bicyclist getting run off the road.
  • Dooring: On many streets, the bicycle lane is adjacent to the parking lane without much space between them. In this type of accident, a motorist forgets to check for bicyclists before exiting their parked vehicle, which leads to the unlucky bicyclist colliding into the door or getting run out of the lane. In either scenario, the consequences can be deadly.
  • Intersection Collisions: A motorist may fail to stop at an intersection, or fail to yield to a crossing bicyclist, causing an injurious or even fatal collision.

Of course, there are bicycle accident cases which do not involve motorists. Unsafe roadway conditions and defective bicycle design/manufacturing can contribute to bike crashes as well.

Most bicycle accidents involve collisions with motor vehicles, the drivers of which commit negligent and/or reckless acts.
