Helping Injured Pedestrians And Bicyclists Recover
With its infrastructure, active lifestyle and fair weather, Northern California can be a haven for cyclists, hikers and pedestrians who want to enjoy its cities and natural beauty. However, these recreational activities can quickly turn dangerous when a negligent motorist or property owner contributes to an accident.
When we represent a bicycle accident victim at the Bay Area Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, APC, we often find ourselves representing a child who rode out into the street, a college student who used a bicycle as a primary form of transportation or a commuter who enjoyed riding a bicycle to work in lieu of driving a car or taking the bus.

How We Build Your Case For Compensation
Riding a bike to work or school should not put your life at risk. We punish negligent drivers who injure and kill bicyclists when they fail to exercise proper caution or ignore the rules of the road. As career personal injury lawyers with a reputation for thorough, fair representation of accident victims, we are fully prepared to present a compelling case after a bicyclist of any age has been seriously injured or killed.
As in other vehicle accident cases, key aspects of any bicycle accident case include investigating the accident, identifying liable parties and assessing the long-term effects of the victim’s injuries. When we represent a victim of a bike crash, we immediately begin to prepare a compelling case for compensation, including:
- Documenting the accident scene
- Interviewing witnesses such as other children, drivers or pedestrians
- Photographing the bicycle and the vehicle that hit it
- Searching for and identifying all potential sources of compensation, including homeowners insurance
We are proud of the real results and real recovery we have obtained on behalf of bicycle accident victims.
In recent years, we have seen a troubling growth in the number of dooring collisions, which occur when a parked motorist opens his or her door in the path of a cyclist. These accidents can cause severe injury to the cyclist. Our attorneys have skillfully secured compensation for cyclists affected by these accidents throughout the Bay Area.
Accidents Involving Pedestrians
We punish negligent drivers who injure pedestrians. Schedule a consultation to learn how we can prepare and develop a compelling case for compensation. Please note it is advisable to seek legal counsel immediately, as a lawyer can assist with the task of identifying the driver of the car or truck that struck you.
In the case of a hit-and-run accident, your own uninsured motorist insurance may be the best place to look for financial help to cover medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Your lawyer at the Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker can investigate and identify any and all sources of compensation to ensure that you are taken care of following a serious accident.
