California Bike Accident Lawyers

Assisting Injured Cyclists From Sacramento, Down to San Diego

There are millions of bicyclists in the United States. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), almost one-third of the population ride bikes. Due to the increase in the number of bicycles on the road throughout the United States and in California, many cities have constructed special bike lanes. Still, bicycle awareness lags far behind where it should be.

California law is clear—section 21200 of the California Vehicle Code states that bicycle riders have the same rights and are subject to the same laws as other drivers on the road. Nevertheless, motor vehicle drivers often do not respect a bicyclist’s right to share the road and, just as importantly, many cyclists have not been properly educated on how to legally and safely share the roads with automobiles. If you were injured in a bicycle-vehicle accident, B&D Law Group, APLC can help.

Common Injuries Caused by Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle-car accidents often cause more serious injuries than other types of automobile accidents. Unlike, automobile passengers, the only protection that cyclists have in the event of a collision comes from their helmets. Even despite California’s mandatory helmet laws, head injuries still account for a majority of serious injuries in bike accidents. Bike accidents also result in a significant portion of fatalities; approximately 2% of California traffic accident fatalities involve bike accidents.

Other common injuries resulting from bicycle accidents include:

It is extremely important to take the appropriate steps to prevent and protect yourself from a California bicycle accident injury. Riders should make sure to wear helmets, as well as brightly colored and protective clothing while cycling.

Helping You Navigate the Legal System

Bicycle accidents can have a devastating effect on their victims. Additionally, when it comes to pursuing compensation, bike collisions present unique challenges. Insurance companies will often try to demonize the cyclists and wrongfully deny their claims. Routinely, insurance companies try to settle bicycle injury claims for close to one-third less than they would a similar claim by an automobile driver or passenger.

Insurance companies employ armies of investigators, experts, and other professionals to protect their “bottom line.” You need an advocate on your side who is a skilled negotiator and who can work to help you secure the maximum recovery for your bicycle accident. The experienced California bike accident lawyers at B&D Law Group can fight to make sure you are adequately compensated for your injuries.
