Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Were you seriously injured in a bike accident in Torrance?

Every year, thousands and thousands of people throughout Southern California are injured in accidents involving an automobile while traveling by bike. Although there are numerous laws in place to protect people traveling outside of vehicles, we continue to see them being harmed in accidents involving vehicles at an alarming rate.

Both pedestrians and bicyclists have areas designated for their use throughout the city of Torrance, Los Angeles, and most of Southern California. These areas are designed to be safe and effective places for them to travel to and from their destinations. When other motorists who are sharing the roads, fail to respect those traveling outside of vehicles, it can lead to catastrophic accidents.

Accidents involving bicyclists are more likely to result in life-altering injuries and oftentimes, even death. Many bike accident victims suffer from a variety of injuries including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries in these accidents.

So many of these people are hospitalized due to their injuries and have to go through months of therapy. The fact that these people do not have the protection of steel cages like drivers in cars do, sharing the road means they are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries in the collisions that they are involved in.

Many Bicycle Accidents are Caused by Inattentive Drivers

Like pedestrian accidents, bicycle collisions are often a result of negligent, reckless, careless drivers. These accidents are often preventable, yet thousands of bicyclists are left with major injuries that will impact the rest of their lives.

When drivers fail to observe their surroundings or engage in safe driving practices, they are more likely to cause life-threatening collisions. Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents in Torrance include but are not limited to the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Poor road conditions
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Dooring (drivers who open their doors into bicycle lanes)
  • Poor bike maintenance/not making required repairs
  • Defective or inadequate safety equipment
  • Alcohol intoxication/drug impairment

The negligent actions of car and truck drivers can result in serious injuries to cyclists throughout Southern California. Bicycle riders can suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, lacerations, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), bruises, and a variety of other injuries.

Many victims sustain injuries that result in the need for costly medical treatment and can result in lost wages. Victims injured in accidents caused by reckless drivers can work with a personal injury attorney in Torrance to obtain compensation for both economic and non-economic damages they face moving forward.

Common Injuries in Bicycle Accidents

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents, bicyclists and pedestrians are at a disadvantage due to the fact that they are not protected by a vehicle during the collision. Many of these accidents result in knockdowns because the person outside of the vehicle suffered physical injuries due to being knocked down by the moving vehicle. Crashes involving bicyclists often result in serious injuries, including:

Common Injuries

When it comes to motor vehicle accidents, bicyclists and pedestrians are at a disadvantage due to the fact that they are not protected by a vehicle during the collision. Many of these accidents result in knockdowns because the person outside of the vehicle suffered physical injuries due to being knocked down by the moving vehicle. Crashes involving bicyclists often result in serious injuries, including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Traumatic brain injuries are devastating. Not only do these injuries often result in overwhelming pain and suffering, but they lead to permanent disabilities in most cases. Victims who suffer traumatic brain injuries are often forced to go through extensive therapy and spend months or even years in recovery.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Spinal cord injuries are extremely painful and complicated to deal with. Many victims who sustain spinal cord injuries are left with some degree of paralysis. Some victims remain permanently disabled while others are able to recover to some extent through therapy. Spinal cord injuries require extensive and costly medical treatment, which can be life-long.
  • Back and Neck Injuries: Victims involved in bicycle and pedestrian accidents are at a heightened risk for sustaining herniated, ruptured, or slipped discs in accidents. Some victims suffer neck injuries, which can cause overwhelming pain and disability.
  • Bone Fractions: Skull fractures, broken collar bones, rib breaks, and breaks or sprains to the knees, hips, ankles, feet, arms, wrists, and pelvis can require surgery and therapy. These injuries are painful and debilitating and hinder victims’ abilities to perform various tasks with ease.
  • Limb Loss/Amputations: The loss of a limb is particularly devastating. These life-changing injuries require a complete adjustment for victims. Many victims have to learn how to walk again or perform various tasks due to their new limitations.
  • Cuts and Lacerations: Being thrown or knocked down by a vehicle can result in serious cuts, scrapes, and lacerations. Many victims are left with permanent scarring and emotional damages due to these injuries.
  • Internal Organ Damages: Many victims harmed in these accidents sustain ruptured livers or spleens, lung punctures, internal bleeding kidney damages, and other injuries that require extensive medical treatment.

Some pedestrians and bicyclists sustain serious injuries that require immediate and long-term medical treatment.

I had several great experiences with Michael Braun. He is experienced, professional, and a great listener. He is also responsive and you are always able to at least get a hold of a someone at the office to relay an urgent message. Ultimately, the strategy that we worked on together was successful. Highly recommended for at least an initial consultation or second opinion on anything legal one is facing.

Michael is an incredible lawyer, a rare lawyer in his kindness and willingness to work for people. He is extremely helpful and knowledgeable, they are the best lawyers I've ever had the pleasure of working with.From the moment I walked into their office, they're warm and friendly and you get the instant feeling that you're going to be in safe hands with them. I went to him about a matter when someone hit the car from the back, their insurance company was not accepting fault but Michael quickly resolved it for me and my worries quickly disappeared. He was easy to reach whenever I had any additional questions or concerns, and it made me feel like he really cared. and he knew exactly what he was talking about, did not charge me a dime for consultation, and helped me to rest assured on next steps concerning the matter.I feel empowered, informed, and will go out of my way to recommend his firm to you.If you are looking for a good injury lawyer this is the place you can never go wrong.

Michael Braun, always made himself available, and took the time to answer any questions I had regarding the auto insurance case.NetworkMichael Braun, covered me on every aspect from ensuring my truck, was repaired to the state it was in before getting rear-ended, and most importantly getting me much needed medical treatment through his network.Follow-upsMichael Braun and his office, would always respond back to emails, text, and phone calls within a timely manner. He also ensured to get paper-work sorted with the insurance companies in a timely manner as well.OutcomeIn my case, Attorney Michael Braun, was able to win my insurance claim, and didn't close or request settlement until the doctors and myself declared that I was in a clean bill of health. He never rushed the process but did make sure that nothing seemed out of line.RecommendationBased on my personal experience, I would highly recommend Attorney Michael Braun and his office. If I ever require his services in the future, I will contact him again (hopefully I won't need an attorney), but if I did I would feel confident with his representation.
