Bicycle Accident Claims

Bicycle Accident Claims

In the event of a bicycle accident and injury, the cyclist may be able to make a claim for compensation for the harm suffered. This can be done through a personal injury claim against the at-fault partys insurance company. The amount of compensation that may be awarded will depend on the severity of the cyclists injuries and the amount of financial losses incurred. A bicycle accident lawyer can help to ensure that the cyclist receives the maximum amount of compensation available.

Oftentimes, bicycle riders are blamed for the collision.  This is often reflected in the Traffic Collision Report.  There is an inherent bias against cyclists in our opinion.  Bicycle riders in most states including California have all the same rights and responsibilities as any other "vehicle".  Retaining a legal advocate that can parse through the allegations of fault against the bike rider is crucial to obtaining just and fair compensation.

The bottom line is that if you are involved in an accident while riding your bike and are struck by a motor vehicle, it is imperative to retain a lawyer familiar with bicycle accident claims.  The attorney can assist with finding quality medical care, address any allegations of fault or comparative fault against the bike rider, and present the claim in a way that maximizes the case value.
