If you have been involved in traffic collision while riding a bicycle, you need experienced representation in order to collect the compensation you deserve. We are familiar with the unique issues and often serious injuries involved in these accidents.
Your Injuries & Damages
We recognize that a bicycle accident can cause life changing injuries, including soft tissue injuries, broken bones, brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries. We work with you and your medical team to understand your injuries, and we can get you access to treatment with no up-front cost to you. Injuries often require extensive treatment from doctors, hospitals, surgeons, chiropractors, and therapists. We hold negligent parties liable for the medical care you need, now and in the future.
You may also miss work or be unable to return to work at all due to the extent of your injuries. The loss of income and earning capacity can last well into the future, and can be financially devastating. We get accident victims full compensation for their loss.
Hospital visits and missed work cost money, but accident victims also experience physical pain and mental suffering from their injuries. Accident victims continue to suffer when they can no longer enjoy life as they did before the accident, enjoy the full use of their body, are inconvenienced by their accident, and when they suffer grief, anxiety, humiliation, and emotional distress following an accident. We hold negligent parties fully liable for the damages caused in a traffic collision.
It is important that you consult with a qualified attorney immediately in order to protect your rights. As soon as an accident occurs, insurance companies and government agencies begin to investigate potential claims, and will often look for any way to minimize your potential recovery. There is also a limited amount of time to file a claim, and it is nearly impossible to obtain compensation for your injuries if that time limit expires. You need someone to protect your rights immediately.
As soon as you contact us, we will begin to investigate the accident and determine who is liable for your injuries. Drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles with reasonable care, and may be found negligent when they fail to do so. Cyclists are at a heightened risk of injury because of negligent and inattentive drivers. In Southern California, drivers are routinely inattentive and drive too fast. We will examine the liability of all potentially responsible parties, including whether the other driver was speeding, distracted, or intoxicated. We will review the potential liability of government entities for the design of the roadway, intersection, traffic light, or guardrail.
We know how to investigate your accident and gather all of the relevant evidence in order to make a compelling case and maximize your potential recovery. We have experience investigating accident scenes and damage to vehicles. We will obtain the information needed, such as witness statements, traffic collision reports, photographs, medical records, and evidence of lost wages.
