How to Prove Liability for a Bicycle Accident in California
Under California law, bicycle accident
injury claims are generally based on negligence. To hold another party liable
for your bike accident, you must prove that their reckless or careless conduct,
in some form, caused your injuries. For the most part, bicycle crash claims are
brought against negligent drivers. Driver negligence can come in many different
forms — from speeding through intersections and running red lights to texting
while driving or talking on a cell phone while driving. No matter the
circumstances, a serious bicycle accident requires a comprehensive
investigation. Our San Jose personal injury attorneys will gather and assemble
all important evidence so that you can hold the responsible party legally
Injured Victims Deserve Full Financial Compensation
Bicycle accident victims can seek financial relief for their monetary losses and for their non-economic damages. To recover the full available compensation, your damages must be properly documented. Unfortunately, insurance companies are notoriously aggressive in handling personal injury claims. They will try to settle your bike accident injury case for less than it is worth. Our San Jose bicycle accident attorneys will help you maximize your settlement offer. Money damages may be available for:
- Emergency medical treatment;
- Other medical bills and expenses;
- Lost current and future wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental anguish;
- Permanent impairment;
- Reduced quality of life; and
- Wrongful death.
