Bicyclists involved in accidents can suffer severe and sometimes catastrophic injuries.

Regardless of the type or severity of your bike injury, we are here to help you pay for any damages you suffered.

Bicycle Accident Injuries
Bicyclists in California have the same rights and responsibilities as drivers. Our attorneys are bike riders who understand the dangers of cycling. Bicyclists have every right to venture out onto the roads without fear of getting hit by a car or other larger, heavier vehicle. In many cases, drivers are simply not paying attention to what they are doing or to who else is on the road with them. We represent bicyclists who have been injured in a collision with a car or other vehicle, or as a result of a product failure or roadway defects.
Since bicycles offer no protection, bicycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or even death - sadly, the most common bike accident victims are young children.
We represent cyclists who have suffered any type of injury, including some of the most common:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
- Serious injuries, including paralysis

Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.) It allows you to focus on your own recovery, rather than the complicated details of your case. 2.) By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?
This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.
What is the average settlement amount for a personal injury claim?
The average compensation amount for a personal injury case is anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000, depending on what type of damages you are pursuing.
Does California put damage caps on claims for personal injury cases?
No, only Medical Malpractices cases have a cap. California Civil Code section 3333.2 sets a cap on the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case. The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000. All other Personal Injury cases are not subject to any cap.
