Each year 500,000 people suffer personal injuries in bicycle accidents in the United States. More than 700 per year die in bike accidents. Children are particularly at risk for injury. They are involved in almost 60% of all bike accidents.
As a California bicycle injury lawyer for the past twenty–seven years, I have seen first hand the devastating injuries that arise out of bike accidents. Severe head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones are not uncommon. When people are seriously injured in these types of accidents, they need someone who has the legal expertise and experience to properly investigate the accident and deal with the insurance companies involved.
Our investigation looks into all aspects of the case. We employ top–notch engineers and accident reconstructionists to evaluate accident forces, times and distances, and fault analysis of all parties. In addition to examining and analyzing driver error, we look at other possible contributing factors. We examine whether the roadway was safe and whether there were potential dangers in the road, such as blind spots, unsafe site distances, etc., and whether any equipment failure contributed to the injury and damages.
We understand that when someone is badly injured in a bike accident, they need to focus their efforts on recuperating. Meanwhile we handle all of the legal matters involved in the claim. In addition to investigating the accident, we handle all of the insurance issues in terms of both liability insurance and medical insurance coverages and problems.
Our goal is to take the stress and pressure off of you so you can get back on your feet quickly, while we make sure that the insurance companies pay full compensation to you for all of your lost earnings, medical bills, and compensation for the injuries themselves.
At our firm, only one attorney handles your case from beginning to end. You are never shuttled off to a paralegal or other office staff to handle your important legal matters.
