Costa Mesa CA Bicycle Accident Attorney
Dan Carlton puts your best interests first after your accident
Bicycling is a popular way to get around Southern California, particularly with congested street traffic and how hard it can be to find a parking space. There's a down side to cycling that all cyclists are aware of - serious accidents involving cars or other motorized vehicles.
Even though there are bike lanes and other safety measures designed to protect cyclists, bicycle accidents often occur in Southern California, resulting in very serious cycling injuries.
Knowing what to do after a cycling accident caused by a reckless or negligent driver can be overwhelming. That's why we want to help. At the Law Offices of Daniel C. Carlton in Costa Mesa, we know what to do. That's because bicycle accident attorney Dan Carlton has been handling such cases in Southern California for more than 40 years. There's no substitute for such experience, no substitute for success.
Why do bicycle accidents happen?
You may be an avid cyclist who only races or does long-distance rides with a cycling group. You might bicycle to work because it's an easier commute. Or perhaps you just bike to the beach or to the park with your family on weekends. Whatever type of cycling you do, it's possible to be involved in a collision with a car at any time. Common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Distracted driver hitting cyclists
- Texting drivers crashing into bicyclists
- Tired drivers who drift towards the side of the road
- Drunk drivers who lose control of their vehicle
- Speeding drivers who don't have time to slow down and avoid a collision
