Dooring: A Common Cause Of Bicycle Accidents

One of the most common causes of bicycle injuries occurs when vehicles on the roadway fail to look out for bicyclists around them.

“Doorings” happen when a vehicle occupant opens their car door into the path of an oncoming cyclist. This type of accident is a frequent occurrence and often causes severe injuries to the cyclist.

Ask An Attorney What To Do After This Kind Of An Accident

As part of our investigation into your accidental injury, we will examine all aspects of the incident, including actions by motorists such as opening car doors unsafely. California law prohibits persons from opening a vehicle’s door on the side of moving traffic until it is safe to do so.

The Brandi Law Firm lawyers understand the rules of the road when it comes to parked cars. We have access to experts who can provide information about what the law says about protecting a bicycle rider’s right of way. Our attorneys work hard to ensure careless drivers are held accountable to cyclists when these rules aren’t followed.
