Residents and visitors of Beverly Hills enjoy riding bicycles for leisure, for exercise and for transportation. Regardless of the reason a rider chooses to ride, the rules of the road should always apply.
As weather permits, the number of riders increase, and share the road with cars, trucks and buses, which leads to a higher chance of an accident occurring. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 857 cyclists were killed in U.S. traffic accidents in 2018.
All bicycle accidents are different, and they can include multiple parties and their insurance companies. Avrek Law Firm’s bicycle accident lawyers in Beverly Hills are familiar with these types of claims, and fight for victims to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for any damages.
