California electric bike accident attorney
E-bikes, or electric bicycles, are bikes that have been equipped with batteries and motors, allowing the rider to travel at a much faster speed, compared to a traditional bike. Unfortunately, the e-bike's rise in popularity over the past few years has led to an increase in auto accidents.
E-bike riders are required by state law to ride as far right as practical. Riders are not permitted to ride in bike paths unless those paths are adjacent to a roadway. This can put an e-bike rider in a dangerous situation if there is no bike path and they’re forced to share the road with a negligent driver. Because the bicyclist does not have much protection from vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds, an accident involving an e-bike and a passenger vehicle often has catastrophic results.
If you were injured in an electric bicycle accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you must speak with a California electric bike accident attorney at MVP Accident Attorneys as soon as possible.

For many people, e-bikes offer an affordable, easy, and fast way to commute. These bikes are also much more environmentally friendly compared to automobiles and riders can save money by avoiding the skyrocketing gas prices as of late. However, unlike an automobile, which encloses the occupants in a metal frame, an e-bike rider does not have much protection against the terrain or negligent drivers or the road. This lack of protection can result in catastrophic injuries if the e-bike rider is involved in an accident with a passenger vehicle.
When a collision occurs, the bicyclist may be faced with a permanent disability that requires lifelong treatment and steep medical costs.
