Recovering Compensation For Injured Cyclists
When we represent a bicycle accident victim in Northern California, we often learn that the injured person fit one of these descriptions:
- A child who rode out into the street in their own neighborhood
- A college student who used a bicycle as a primary form of transportation
- A commuter who enjoyed riding a bicycle to work in lieu of driving a car or taking the bus
- Someone who used their bicycle for shopping and other errands
- A sporting bicyclist who rode for exercise and pleasure
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, at Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, we are fully prepared to present a compelling case after a bicyclist of any age has been seriously injured or killed.
A Prompt Investigation May Make A Great Difference
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 to cover the following:
- Medical expenses
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost wage replacement
- Pain and suffering
- In fatal cases, funeral and burial costs as well as loss of companionship
We are proud of the strong results, verdicts and settlements for recovery that we have obtained on behalf of numerous bicycle accident victims and their families.
About Bicycling Hazards And Liability
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.
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 pedestrian accident.
