Sometimes, drivers do not operate their vehicle with the level of care and attention as required of them. They may strike a bicyclist while changing lanes or cut in front of a bicyclist without allowing the bicyclist time to stop or change directions. Other times, drivers may strike a bicyclist who is riding in a bike path or even crossing the street in the crosswalk. We know that investigations into these types of accidents may be hindered by the inherent bias that exists in law enforcement and the public against bicycle riders. We have experience handling such cases and are prepared to help.
Bicyclists who are struck by a car or truck can sustain devastating, permanent injuries. You should be aware that if another party is at fault, you have the legal right to recover compensation for your damages, including present and future medical bills, lost wages, and damages to the bike itself. If you live in the Los Angeles area and sustained injuries in a bicycle accident, our firm can help you.
