Many people enjoy riding their bike to work or to the local park, and, as weather permits, the number of riders increase. This also means that the number of bicycle accidents increase, especially when bikers need to share the road with car, trucks and buses. The Pedestrian and Bicycle Information Center reports that there were 783 bicyclists were killed in 2017 in the United States.
Every bicycle accident is different and can include multiple parties and their insurance companies. The Long Beach bicycle accident lawyers at Avrek Law Firm are familiar with local laws and treat each victim’s claim with dignity and respect.
