California Bicycle Crash Lawyers
We know that the injuries from a bicycle accident can be particularly serious: head injuries, broken limbs, facial disfigurement, paralysis, and even wrongful death.
Bicycle accidents are an area of the law with which we are particularly experienced especially if your accident involved a motor vehicle. Victims of hit and run accidents are well advised to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help uncover all sources of compensation. Road conditions, construction, road signs, and other factors may influence sources of compensation that you may need for medical expenses. Avid cyclists, Los Angeles college students, bike messengers, and so many other people take advantage of the benefits of bike riding. They all deserve to be safe. When that safety is compromised, we will make sure that responsible parties are held accountable.
We work to protect the rights of bicycle injury victims throughout California. To schedule a free initial consultation with our Los Angeles bike accident lawyers, contact us.
Our in-depth experience in all aspects of bicycle accidents has given us an understanding of issues such as:
- Liability in the event that potholes and other road defect or maintenance issues contributed to a bicycle injury.
- Dog attacks on bicyclists.
- Slippery conditions on beach bike paths.
- Insurance coverage that may apply, possibly including homeowner's insurance.
- Legal procedures that become necessary when an injured bicyclist is physically incapacitated and faces short to long term partial or total disability: powers of attorney, guardianships, special needs trusts, and interaction with creditors.
- Legal complexities arising from uninsured or under-insured drivers involved in bike crashes
$490,000 Pre-Litigation Settlement. Our client was riding his bike in a cross walk and was struck by a car that rolled through a stop sign. There was no emergency room treatment and police did not arrive at the scene. Our client had no health insurance, therefore we arranged for medical treatment including back surgery with one of the top neurosurgeon's in Southern California. He has made a full recovery. After initially denying the claim, the insurance settled the claim immediately after our firm filed the lawsuit.
The sooner our lawyers become involved in a bicycle accident
investigation, the sooner we can begin case preparation. We are more likely to be successful obtaining maximum compensation for you that will lead to exceptional medical attention. For
