Why Hire a Bicycle Accident Attorney
If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a bicycle accident because of a driver’s carelessness, you have the legal right to hold that driver (and his/her insurance company) responsible to compensate you for your losses. But shockingly, in California, injured bicyclist lose two out of three cases that go to trial for bicycle accidents. For this reason it is extremely important to be represented by an experienced bicycle accident attorney – who understand the law, and can fight for a settlement or verdict to compensate you for your injuries.
Just 0.6% of Los Angeles’ 28,000 miles of streets and roads have lanes for bikes. In 2017 alone, sixty-two cyclists were struck and killed by cars while riding on Southern California streets. In addition to suing drivers, cyclists can also successfully sue governments for failing to remedy hazards that caused their bicycle accidents – such as road obstructions, tree roots, potholes and buckled pavement.
