Bike Accidents in California

Bicycle accidents frequently result in riders suffering injuries, including catastrophic and fatal injuries.

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

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

The injuries sustained in a bicycle accident can be severe and life-changing. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Head Injuries: These can range from minor concussions to traumatic brain injuries. Wearing a helmet can help reduce the risk, but it does not eliminate it.
  • Fractures: Broken bones are common in bicycle accidents, particularly fractures to the arms, legs, and collarbone.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: These can result in permanent disability, such as paralysis.
  • Road Rash: This is a skin abrasion that occurs when a cyclist slides across the pavement.

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 a claim against the at-fault party to recover damages for medical bills, lost work wages and future earnings, pain and suffering, and more.

When Should a Bicycle Accident Victim Contact an Attorney?

If you've been involved in a bicycle accident, it's essential to contact an attorney as soon as possible. This is because:

  • Evidence Preservation: An attorney can help preserve crucial evidence from the accident scene.
  • Medical Bills: An attorney can help you get compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
  • Negotiating with Insurance Companies: Insurance companies often attempt to minimize payouts. An experienced attorney can negotiate on your behalf to ensure you receive fair compensation.
