Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accidentsPedestrians and bicyclists have little protection against dangers on the road and usually suffer serious injuries when they are struck by a vehicle.

We understand the complexities of car accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists and will protect your rights and get the money you need and deserve.

Let us deal with the insurance companies to get you the maximum benefits while you are dealing with your recovery.

Determining fault in Bicycle Accidents can be complicated

A reckless or distracted motorist may be entirely at fault, but poorly-marked crosswalks and bike paths or other unsafe road conditions may also cause serious bicycle accidents. We will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of your accident, including:

  • Reckless driving, speeding, driving under the influence
  • Distracted drivers on their cell phones
  • Illegal left turns made by motorists or lane changes
  • Drivers violating California’s three-foot rule for passing
  • Poorly-marked crosswalks and bike paths
  • Dangerous road hazards

As part of our investigation, we review police reports and talk to witnesses to clearly determine the circumstances of the accident.

When an at-fault driver has fled the accident scene, it becomes even more difficult to recover full damages for your injuries. If the hit-and-run driver can’t be identified, we will help you pursue other avenues of compensation through an under-insured or uninsured motorist claim. These insurance claims allow you to get compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and damages.

If you were injured in an accident involving a vehicle while walking, jogging or cycling, contact us for a free consultation about your personal injury or wrongful death claim.
