Car vs. Bicycle Accidents

Attorney for Car and Bicycle Accidents in Los Angeles

Car versus bicycle accidents are often very serious, resulting in extensive injury most often to the rider of the bicycle. In the event of a traffic collision, the bicyclist has little to no protection from the force of impact with the motor vehicle, and this may result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries. If you or someone you know was injured in an accident involving a car and a bicycle, it is important that you consider consulting an attorney as soon as possible. You will need to handle your insurance claim and any related legal action associated with the accident, and an attorney can do all of this for you while you focus on recovering.

After a car accident with a bicycle, a victim may be able to take legal action against the responsible party. This is done in civil court, by way of a personal injury claim.

Car/Bicycle Accidents and Personal Injury Claims

Who should be held accountable for a car accident involving a bicycle? This will vary depending on the particular accident, but liability would be determined according to which party acted negligently. Negligence in this situation is defined as failing to act with a reasonable level of caution or care, such as speeding, driving recklessly, disobeying traffic laws, or driving drunk. Distraction is also a leading cause of car accidents throughout the U.S. By establishing the other party's responsibility in causing the accident, your lawyer can then work to seek financial damages on your behalf - for your medical care, lost wages, and possibly more.
