Bicycle Accident

Bike accidents can be terrible, traumatic experiences for victims who have been on their bicycle while struck by a vehicle.

How to Avoid Bike Accidents

There are many risks that come associated with bicycling, especially in the densely compacted urban sprawl of a city that is Los Angeles. Stay healthy and safe when you ride your bike by using these sponsored tips!

  • Wear a helmet. A helmet can mean life or death in the event that you are thrown from your bicycle. Don’t let an awkward look or slightly uncomfortable fit be the reason you suffer brain damage from a minor bicycle accident. Your own personal health and safety should always be your number one priority!
  • Wear bright colors. Especially if you bike during the early morning or late evening, wearing bright colored clothing is a must. Many car drivers are not aware of or considering the bike lane or your safety or well-being while they’re on the road. Remind them that you’re there with something vivid and reflective!
  • Be aware of your surroundings. This may seem like an obvious one, but riding with the flow of traffic and making sure you aren’t blowing lights, stop-signs, or taking too many chances on your bicycle are all important factors in avoiding personal harm or injury. It also helps to double-check intersections you’re about to cross to verify that there aren’t any oncoming cars before you make your way.
  • Keep properly lit for early morning/late night bike rides. If you’re riding around at odd hours, wearing brightly colored clothing may not be enough. It is always recommended that you keep reflectors on your bike, as well as headlights to indicate to driver’s that you are a cyclist on the road. Detachable & adjustable head and taillights for your bike are available online and can be purchased for relatively cheap.
