While California is usually known for its car culture, it is also home to numerous bicyclists, both those who use their bikes for everyday transportation and those who ride for sport. Unfortunately, the high number of both cars and bikes on the road gives the state the tragic distinction of leading the nation in bicycle traffic deaths; 123 cyclists lost their lives in bike-auto collisions in one recent year alone (2012).
Beyond the bicycle accident statistics are real people whose lives have been seriously disrupted due to such incidents, whether by suffering injuries or by losing a loved one. This page addresses the needs of those who’ve been hurt in these accidents; if someone you care about has died in a bike-auto collision, please see our wrongful death accident page for help.
