We Represent Injured Bicyclists

Bicycles are not only fun, they are also a great form of exercise and cost-effective mode of transportation. However, because bicyclists have very little protection, they may suffer serious injuries in an accident even when wearing a helmet, such as broken bones, brain injuries, scars and disfigurement, neck and back injuries, or even death.

Causes Of Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accidents occur for many reasons, with the most common being dangerous road conditions such as potholes, debris and maintenance problems. Careless or reckless motorists may cause bicycle accidents by opening car doors in a bicyclist's path, turning into bicyclists at intersections or by not taking proper safety precautions around bicyclists. Defective products such as bike frames and handlebars also lead to a number of serious accidents.

Regardless of who caused your injury or loved one's death, our attorneys will work hard to help you get the compensation you need for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We will take the time to understand how your injuries have affected your quality of life and pursue compensation that reflects that loss. We will explore all potential avenues of recovery, from your auto insurance and uninsured motorist/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage to the driver's auto insurance, to ensure you get maximum compensation.

Protecting The Rights Of Bicyclists

Historically, people younger than 16 have been the most likely victims of deadly bicycle accidents. However, in recent years, there has been a major shift. With rising fuel prices, a large number of adults have taken to biking as an environmentally conscientious and cost-effective way to get around. As a result, more adults are now being injured in bicycle accidents in Sacramento and across the nation.
