Bike lanes running right next to where cars are parking is, as they say, an accident waiting to happen. Our passionate team of Beverly Hills bike accident attorneys has seen the damage and injuries that can be caused when car passengers open their doors in front of incoming bicycles, and it can be severe. If a driver opened a car door without first checking whether there was an oncoming cyclist, they should be responsible for all of the harm and losses that result. Drivers, Check Your Mirrors If you’re parked next to the street, particularly if you’re parked next to a bike lane, always look for bicycles before you open your door.

Who Was Responsible for Your Motorcycle Accident?

Auto Accident
Everywhere in Southern California, you can see people zipping around on their motorcycles and other two-wheeled motor vehicles.
