Bicycle Accident Attorney Serving Riverside

About Riverside Bicycle Accidents

In large cities such as Riverside, it is an unfortunate fact that that bicyclists are not always treated with the safety measures necessary by drivers of cars. The area unfortunately has its share of serious bicycle accidents, often causing serious and life-threatening injuries to innocent bicyclists, often children.

Dealing with a serious injury accident is frightening and terrible for the victim and the families involved, and requires the assistance of a Riverside bicycle accident attorney to assist in seeking recovery for the damages suffered.

Riverside Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicycle accidents quite often occur due to:

  • Driver negligence
  • Driver intoxication (drunk driving)
  • Dangerous road and street surfaces

In the case of driver intoxication, an investigation may need to be done on an immediate basis, before the evidence supporting the case is lost. Unnecessary injuries can be the result of driver ignorance or intolerance of the bicyclist's rights to use the roads and streets in the area.

Severe bicycle injuries can cause permanent or temporary disability resulting in loss of wages, medical expenses including future medical costs, and pain and suffering. When injuries are less severe, the victims should still be met with compensation commensurate to the damages suffered.

The most common occurrence in a bicycle accident is the bicycle rider hit by the front or side on a vehicle. In such a case the victim is often thrown into the air and lands on their head, back or side, causing serious and often life-threatening or catastrophic injuries. Other bicycle accidents may have less serious injuries.

At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, no matter the degree of injury, the case will be given the priority attention it deserves.

When dealing with a claim against an individual in a bicycle accident, you should ensure you have the proper legal assistance so that your claim reflects all of the damages suffered.

In the case of an unsafe road claim, you are dealing with well-financed government offices, and should have an excellent legal team on your side, protecting your rights in the claims process if you want to go up against such an organization. Insurance companies are expert in negotiating claims to a lesser amount, as it is an activity they are involved with every day.

Often the victim or their family does not know his rights and may accept a settlement that is far lower than they could receive when supported by strong and experienced legal counsel.

Call our firm at (800) 905-8777 and speak with an attorney before discussing your case with an insurance adjuster. What you say to the adjuster can be used to reduce your claim amount, and protecting your rights is vital in bicycle accident cases.
