Woman Knocked Down By “Critical Mass” Bicyclist in San Diego

By Ross Jurewitz on July 11, 2012

A female pedestrian suffered serious injuries after she was hit by a cyclist participating in a “Critical Mass” event on June 29 at the Mission Beach boardwalk. According to SDPD Assistant Chief Boyd Long, a cyclist bumped the woman, who fell and cracked her chin. Her husband got into a scuffle with another cyclist when he tried to confront the biker.

Police are investigating whether the “Critical Mass” group was riding recklessly and how the collision occurred. We wish the injured pedestrian all the very best for a complete and quick recovery.

The couple, who are in their 50s, can file a personal injury claim against the negligent cyclist to seek damages such as medical bills and emotional and mental harm caused by the accident.

Each year in California, more than one hundred people are killed and thousands more are injured in bicycle accidents. A study by two researchers at Hunter College found that at least 38,000 bicycle-pedestrian crashes occurred between 1980 and 2009, which is about the same number of people who die in car accidents every year.

California law requires bicyclists, just like cars, to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in marked or unmarked crosswalks.

If you or someone you love has been killed or injured in a bicycle accident, get the representation you need against the at-fault party. Call a San Diego pedestrian injury lawyer at the Jurewitz Law Group at (888) 233-5020 for a free consultation.
