Bicyclist:  I recently was going through an intersection on my bike. I did not see any cars and went through the stop signs without stoping. I was almost run over by a car. If I was hit, is it my fault. Do have any rights?

Bicycle Accident Lawyer  In California, bicycle riders most abide by the same rules of the road as car or other motor vehicles.   In this instance, if the cause of the accident was related to you failing to stop at a stop sign you may be at fault.  However, if the car failed to abide by another California Vehicle Code law, then you may be able to some recovery since California is a comparative fault state.
