Sharing The Roads Is Not Always Safe
California is one of the country’s leaders in eco-friendly living. By 2032, Los Angeles County alone is proposing more than 800 miles of new bike lanes and paths. But, this does not mean that our transition is an easy one. Busy intersections and roads are a biker’s biggest danger. And, more and more often, bikers and drivers seem at odds.
If and when you are hit, you stand no chance. Bikers hit by the force of a car, even one going at a low speed are highly vulnerable to:
- Injuries to the back or spine
- Broken bones
- Serious wounds
- Long-lasting joint injuries
Bikers are entitled to road space, and, after injury, you are entitled to compensation for your pain and medical costs. Liability issues will likely fall on the driver, and you need an ally who can go to bat for you.
The Law Offices of Payam Y. Poursalimi, APC, is the partner you need when filing your insurance claims.
There Are Additional Considerations For Delivery Bikers
In addition to the problems recreational and commuting bikers face, bicycle delivery workers are at high risk for injury. Your time on the road is so much higher than the average biker and this directly impacts how likely you are to be hit.
As a bike delivery worker, you may be entitled to different types of compensation when hurt. These may include third-party liability and workers’ compensation in addition to compensation from a driver’s insurance companies.
