At about 6:18 p.m. on Friday, June 14, a motorist struck and seriously injured a cyclist in the Grantville neighborhood of San Diego. While traveling southbound in the 5600 block of Fairmont Avenue a woman in her 50s struck the cyclist, also in his 50s, while turning onto the ramp for Interstate 8. Emergency responders transported him to a hospital to receive treatment for fractures to his ribs and skull. Authorities are investigating the bicycle accident.
If a motorist’s negligence causes an accident that harms a cyclist, then the cyclist may file a personal injury claim against the motorist in order to be compensated for his or her recovery-related expenses,” explained California bicycle accident lawyer James Ballidis.
The city of San Diego accounted for 2 of the 8 fatalities and 480 of the 897 injuries suffered by cyclists in traffic accidents that occurred in the county in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Across California, the incidence of bicyclist fatalities increased 13.2 percent, from 99 in 2010 to 114 in 2011.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the cyclist whom the motorist struck and seriously injured in Grantville.
