Bicycle Accidents in Costa Mesa
The California Highway Patrol's Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS) reported recently, 82 people were injured Costa Mesa bicycle accidents. Throughout Orange County, three fatalities and 1,187 injuries were reported as a result of bike crashes during that same year.
Costa Mesa is relatively bike-friendly. Many roadways have bike lanes that make it safer for bicyclists. There is a beautiful bike path along Victoria Street, for example, that is separate from the main road. There are also a number of great parks with dirt paths for bicyclists. For example, Fairview Park is a great location for bicyclists to get some exercise and simply to enjoy a good ride.
Liability for Bicycle Accidents
Depending on the circumstances of the crash, a number of parties may be held liable for the bicycle accident. For example, if the accident was caused by a negligent driver, the driver can be held liable. If a dangerous roadway or intersection caused the accident, then, the city or governmental agency responsible for maintaining the roadway can also be held liable.
If a defective bicycle or bike part caused the accident, the manufacturer can be held accountable. In such cases, injured bicyclists can seek compensation for damages including but not limited to medical costs, hospitalization, lost earnings, rehabilitation and pain and suffering.
