Los Angeles Bicycle Accident Attorney

Help for Injured Cyclists in Los Angeles County - Call (800) 905-8777

Were you or a loved one injured in a bicycle accident in Los Angeles or the surrounding areas in Southern California? According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, one-third of the bicycle fatalities in the United States occurred in 2009 occurred at an intersection. It has been proven that bike facilities such as off-road paths or on-road bike routes, are the safest for bicyclists, but many riders to not have the luxury of using these types of paths.

There are many reasons why bicycles are growing more and more popular in Los Angeles. For some, bicycles are a great way to avoid rising gas prices. For others, bicycles are a way to increase exercise while running others or traveling to work. Whatever the specific reason may be, bicyclists must realize that they are at greater risk for injury when involved in an accident with a motor vehicle.

Under California law, victims of accidents caused by another party's negligent, reckless or wrongful conduct have the right to seek legal recourse in civil court. The only penalties that can be imposed in civil court are financial penalties, and this means that the bicycle accident victim may be able to recover a significant amount of money to cover medical expenses and rebuild his or her life.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Reports show that three out of four fatal bicycle accidents involve deadly head injuries, and it is imperative to the safety of cyclists that they wear a helmet whenever they ride. A cyclist is 14 times more likely to die in a bicycle accident if he or she is not wearing a helmet. The injuries that can result from even a minor accident can result in costly medical treatments, and the victims of these accidents deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering.
