Bicycle Accidents Attorneys
Bicycle accidents happen more often than not. These types of accidents generally occur when a motorist fails to see a bicyclist on the roadway, even though they are supposed to be sharing the road. There are many factors that contribute to bicycle accidents, which include:
Sometimes bicycle accidents result in soft tissue injuries. However, many cases involve serious injuries. This includes spinal cord injuries, becoming paralyzed, traumatic brain injuries, dislocated joints, broken bones, amputation, nerve damage, and internal organ damage. When you are injured in an accident, the most important thing is to make sure you receive proper treatment so that you can recover from those injuries. We understand that it can take months, if not years, to recover from your injuries which is why we are here to help with your case so you can focus on your recovery.
Not being able to work after a bicycle accident is often a serious concern for clients. Our office understands that clients need to take time off of work to recover. If you have lost wages because you are unable to work, our office will fight vigorously so that you not only get compensated for your medical bills, but also your lost wages and other damages.
Determining who is at fault in a bicycle accident is often times disputed. No one likes to admit they are wrong. Making a liability determination can be a complicated process. In any event, California law provides for comparative fault. California’s comparative fault law (also known as comparative negligence) allows a person who is injured in an accident to still be entitled to recover their damages even if they are partially at fault. For instance, if someone is found to be 15% percent at fault for an accident, then they are only liable for 15% of the damages. Our attorneys are experienced in all types of personal injury cases when it comes to liability determinations. We will fight hard to get you justice.
Many people often think that they have no remedy when they are involved in an accident. Our attorneys at SDA Law Group are here to get you the compensation you deserve. We understand that many individuals may incur not only medical bills, but lost income, property damage, and future treatment. Additionally, many do not know this but they are also entitled to pain and suffering and emotional distress damages which are often difficult to quantify. If you are injured in a bicycle accident, whether a minor accident or one with serious injuries, contact our office for a case evaluation.
