Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Helping Victims & Families

A bicycle accident may cause catastrophic and potentially fatal injuries. Of all traffic accidents, those involving a bicyclist are often the most serious – most frequently to the rider of the bicycle rather than the driver or occupants of the motor vehicle involved. A bicycle accident may cause a range of injuries, including:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Head trauma and brain injury
  • Neck and spinal cord injury
  • Catastrophic injuries and permanent disability

If you or someone you care about has been hurt in a bicycle accident caused by another, you may have a right to compensation. At Pacific Attorney Group, our bicycle accident attorneys fight to protect the rights of victims and families and secure compensation for their losses, which may include:

  • Medical bills

  • Lost work wages
  • Lost future earnings or earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional injuries

To learn more about your right to compensation and the potential value of your claim, we encourage you to call a our firm at 800.358.9617 for a FREE consultation with one of our bicycle accident attorneys.

The Role of Driver Negligence in Bicycle Accidents

Many motorists simply do not see bicyclists or pedestrians until it is too late. Studies have shown that drivers are more likely to focus on frequent dangers, such as oncoming traffic and other drivers. When sharing the road with a bicycle rider, the motorist may be entirely unaware of the cyclist’s presence or may not understand the cyclist’s right of way. This can easily cause a serious bicycle accident and therefore injury or even death.

Bicycle Accident Attorney in Los Angeles

In Los Angeles, bicycling may appear to be a safe means of transportation, but there are many dangers that come with riding a bicycle. Cyclists must deal with similar road dangers that drivers face, including road hazards, bad weather conditions, and drunk drivers. In addition, bicyclists may experience fatal collisions with larger vehicles including SUVs, trucks, and even 18 wheel big rigs.

When colliding with these larger vehicles, bicyclists have a likelihood of suffering from severe injuries and even death. When colliding with large, metal-made vehicles, bicyclists pose a small chance of suffering from just minor injuries. Most bicycling injuries result in: brain damage, spinal injuries, and fractures.

Being defensive and extra cautious is crucial when bicycling. But even so, accidents can still occur. If a bicyclist manages to dodge an oncoming vehicle, the bicyclist may accidentally swerve into property or a parked vehicle. In doing so, the bicyclist may obtain injuries or damage other property in the process.

Bicycle Equipment

Many bicyclists choose to wear helmets and elbow and knee pads. This practice does help to prevent injuries in minor accidents, but help very little when involved in major collisions with vehicles. However, it is extremely imperative to always wear a helmet and protective gear while bicycling in Los Angeles.

With protective gear, defects can occur and are sometimes responsible for inadequately protecting the bicyclist. A product can even cause more harm to the bicyclist just by being defective. When this occurs, a Los Angeles bicycle accident attorney can help you with any defective productive liability claims. The attorney will work to compensate you against the manufacturer.

If you were recently injured by a driver while bicycling, you should contact a bicycle accident attorney. Many bicycling accidents result in serious injuries that require medical attention and treatment. If your injuries required costly exams, medication, or surgery, you should seek legal counsel.

Los Angeles Serious Bicycle Accidents and Injuries Lawyer
<strong>Bicycle Accident<strong>

In 2008, 52,000 bicyclists were injured in traffic accidents throughout the United States (according to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.) California ranked highest in all the states for the number of bicycle accident injuries, with 3,434. Why are bicyclists at risk of serious injury in the event of an accident with a motor vehicle? A bicycle is a lightweight, non-motorized vehicle that offers a rider no protection in the event of a collision. Because a motor vehicle is so much heavier and larger than a bicycle, the bicycle and rider will sustain the brunt of the impact and therefore the most damage. Brain injury, head trauma, spine injury, multiple bone fractures, and serious neck injury are all types of physical trauma a bicyclist may experience.

Liability in Los Angeles Bicycle Injury Cases

Either a bicycle rider or a motorist may be held liable in a bicycle accident. Bicyclists must observe the same rules as motorists, including stop signs and signals, as well as lane markings. Motorists must also safely share the road with bicyclists, allowing at least 3 feet of clearance when passing a bicycle rider and yielding to cyclists at intersections just as they would yield to another car or truck. Drivers should watch for bicyclists before opening car doors or pulling out from parking spaces as well.
