One of the most common causes of bicycle injuries occur when vehicles on the roadway fail to look out for bicyclists around them. “Doorings” occur 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. California law prohibits persons from opening a vehicle’s door on the side of moving traffic until it is safe to do so.
