Our client, in this case, was riding on the shoulder when struck by a vehicle at 6:15 p.m. in Alameda County in San Jose, California. The lawyers for the insurance carrier contested both the injuries and the fault, but in the end, agreed to pay $180,000.00.

Many times the insurance companies will try to contest the fault when their insured hit a bicycle with their vehicle. When a car hits a bicycle there is usually very little protection for the cyclist which can cause serious injuries. If you have been hit by a car while riding a bike you should speak to attorney to learn about the options in your potential personal injury case.
