Bicycle lighting

Bicycle lighting plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety of cyclists on the road, especially during nighttime rides. The right bike lights not only enhance visibility for the cyclist but also alert motorists of their presence. In California, bike light laws are in place to enforce the usage of lights at night for increased safety.

    What Types of Bike-lights Are Required By Law?

    In dark or low light conditions, many states require cyclists to have both front and rear lights on their bicycles.

    Front lights are essential for illuminating the cyclist's path and making them more visible to oncoming traffic. The brightness of bike lights is measured in lumens, with higher lumens providing greater visibility.

    Battery life is also important, as longer-lasting lights ensure consistent illumination throughout the ride. Rechargeable bike lights, powered by USB-charged batteries, offer convenience and eco-friendliness.

    Rear lights are equally important, as they alert motorists approaching from behind. They help prevent accidents by providing a clear signal of the cyclist's presence on the road. Like front lights, rear bike lights come in various options, including rechargeable models with extended battery life.

     

    Why Do Bike Collisions Still Happen Even With the Right Lighting?

    Bike lights are meant to help the cyclist see the oncoming traffic and terrain, but they are also designed to illuminate the rider and make them highly visible to motorists, pedestrians, and other cyclists.

    However, it's crucial to remember that even the best lighting cannot guarantee complete safety. If you have been involved in a bicycle accident with a motorist and were using proper bike lights, speak with a bicycle accident lawyer to protect your rights and pursue compensation for your injuries and damages.

     

    Can an Insurance company Deny My Accident Claim?

    Insurance companies may try to shift blame onto the cyclist if they were not using bike lights during the accident. They may argue that inadequate visibility contributed to the collision and use it as grounds to minimize or deny your claim. A knowledgeable attorney experienced in bicycle accidents can negotiate with the insurance company's claims adjuster on your behalf.

    A bicycle accident lawyer will investigate your accident, gather and analyze evidence, and prove that the motorist's negligence caused the collision. They will fight for your right to fair compensation, including coverage for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and any other accident-related costs.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
