Los Angeles Bicycle Accident Attorney
Protecting Victims' Rights
Bicycle accidents frequently result in riders suffering injuries, including catastrophic and fatal injuries. When bicycle accidents are caused by negligent drivers, defective products, or dangerous roadway conditions, victims may be able to recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury claim.
Our legal team at McGee, Lerer & Associates fights to protect the rights of bicycle accident victims and recover the maximum compensation possible.
Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, with driver error being the leading cause. Our legal team is prepared to represent riders who have been injured through no fault of their own. This includes accidents caused by:
- Distracted drivers
- Intoxicated or impaired drivers
- Inattentive or negligent drivers
- Car doors being flung open
- Hit and run drivers
- Road rage
- Improperly marked bike lanes
- Defective traffic lights
- Dangerous roadway conditions
The Rights of Injured Riders
By law, bicycle riders have the same rights and responsibilities as automobile drivers. However, even the most attentive and vigilant bike rider can fall victim to another's negligence. When preventable accidents occur, injured riders have a right to file personal injury claims against the at-fault party to recover damages for medical bills, lost work wages and future earnings, pain and suffering, and more.
