Bicycle Accident Lawyers for Serious Injury Cases
For the last several decades, our attorneys have been representing people with the most serious injuries including those that befall cyclists. We are extremely knowledgeable about how to get maximum compensation for our clients in such cases. Our attorneys know the complex vehicle laws pertaining to bicycle riders and we have extensive resources for handling these cases: accident reconstruction experts, roadway design engineers, and bike design specialists who will help us determine if a bike manufacturer is in any way at fault for your injuries. Furthermore, we have handled thousands of car accident cases over the last several decades. We know how to use our expertise in both areas to pursue justice for you. The issues specific to bicycle accidents require particular resources. Having proper legal representation is crucial to the outcome of your case. Over the years we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our injured clients. We may be able to do the same for you.
Injured Cyclists do not have to Settle for Less
Many times bicyclists do not get all the compensation they need from insurance companies after an accident. Many studies show that settlements for injuries suffered in cars are 30% to 40% higher than for the same type of injuries suffered by cyclists. You do not have to be one of the cyclists who settles for less than what you need and deserve. For a free consultation, call us now. We handle cases throughout the greater Los Angeles area, including Simi Valley and other Ventura County communities. If you cannot visit our office, we can come to you in your home, at your job or the hospital.
We are committed to getting each of our clients the maximum compensation that they deserve. We also only accept cases on a contingency basis; if we don't win your case, you pay us nothing. While our commitment to you is total, we also believe that by holding accountable all parties responsible for your injuries we can make the roads safer for all cyclists. Too often, the roads in Los Angeles are filled with countless hazards.
Many cities now recognize the increase in bike traffic and have constructed special bike lanes and other accommodations. Parks make trails accessible to bicycles. Even some vehicle manufacturers offer bike racks as standard equipment. However, many automobile drivers still do not respect the bicyclists' rights to share the road. Uneducated and reckless drivers have been responsible for some staggering statistics:
A bike rider is fatally injured every 6 hours.
Nearly one million children are injured each year in bike related accidents.
Nearly half of all bike fatalities occur to children under the age of 16.
75 percent of all serious injuries and fatalities from such accidents are from head injuries.
While collisions with cars account for only one-third of all of these types of accidents, they account for the majority of catastrophic injuries and deaths.
