When someone else is negligent or careless and causes you injury, as in the case of a bicycle accident, you have the right to take legal action against that person. For example, Bob may be driving down an Oakland city street. He reaches down to adjust the radio, taking his eyes off the road for just a few seconds. What he doesn't realize is that he has swerved from his lane directly into a bicyclist who was sharing the road at the right side of the street. If Jane, the bicyclist, was injured in the collision, she may be able to hold Bob liable for her injuries. Bob's auto insurance policy would most likely cover Jane's medical bills, damage to her bike, and any other injuries or damages she suffered as the result of the accident. Recovering this financial compensation would allow Jane to rebuild her life and move on without suffering the full consequences of the accident and Bob's negligence.
The above is just one example of a potential Oakland bicycle accident claim.
