Fullerton is known for being a college town. It is home to Fullerton College and California State University, Fullerton. Students in Fullerton frequently travel by bicycle to classes, the Carnegie library, Titan Stadium or to punk shows. The Fullerton Train Station, the Pacific Surfliner, and Metrolink commuter rail serve as their main mode of transportation when the trip is too long to make on a bicycle. As a busy city with St. Jude Medical Center and Raytheon as top employers, deliveries and commuter traffic can push bicyclists out of the roadways on those shorter trips. In July, 2013, a FedEx driver collided with a female bicyclist on Nutwood Ave in Fullerton, killing the bicyclist. The accident brought into question the right-of-way laws. And investigators initially stating that the bicyclist seemed to have had the right to pass. Our injury lawyer would be able to assist a family involved in such a wrongful death bicycle accident case by gaining the fair and just amount of damages for the incident.
