“Far too many bicycle accidents are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other motorists. Sadly, when this occurs, bicyclists are the ones who tend to suffer the vast majority of injuries”, according to Arin Khodaverdian, Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. Under California’s rule of comparative negligence, a victim may be able to collect compensation for injuries and other damages even if you were partly at fault for the accident.
