Bicycle Accidents

While riding a bicycle in Temecula may be a great way to enjoy the sights, riders need to be cautious sharing the road with other drivers, because bicycle accidents involving other cars tend to be some of the most serious accidents on the road, and often result in significant and long-term injuries.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a bicycle accident, it is important to contact an experienced Temecula bicycle accident lawyer.

Because bicycle accidents often result in serious and even permanent injuries, a Temecula injury lawyer can help you recover the compensation you deserve. En Español.

Injuries Following a Bicycle Accident

bicycle-accident-injury-attorney-californiaBicycle riders who are injured in an accident involving a car or other motorist, can suffer serious and life-threatening injuries. Unfortunately, as a Temecula bike accident attorney can explain, these accidents can result in costly medical bills, time missed from work, and even death. Bicycle-related accidents can result in severe injuries such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Sprains
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Soft tissue injuries

While this may be a short list of the types of injuries that are common following a bicycle accident, one of the most serious injuries a person can sustain is a traumatic brain injury.

Statistics published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that nearly 70 percent of all serious bicycle accidents involve injuries to the head and brain.

While bicycle riders are encouraged to wear helmets, because of the sheer amount of force that is involved in an accident between a car and a bicycle, a bicycle rider can easily injure delicate parts of their brain. A traumatic brain injury can completely change a victim’s life, requiring years of medical care and treatment.

 

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, California has some of the highest rates of accidents for bicycle riders. In 2016, California reported the second most fatal accidents with 128, with Florida leading the nation with 139. Some of the most common reasons for bicycle accidents include:

  • Bicycle accidents with cars
  • Bicycle and car accidents at intersections
  • Vehicles in a bike lane
  • “Doored” while driving in a bike lane
  • Street defects and potholes
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Distracted drivers
  • Poorly marked traffic signals

An experienced Temecula bicycle accident lawyer is familiar with all of these accidents and can help a bicycle accident victim gather crucial evidence to prove their case. A Temecula bike accident lawyer can investigate the scene, order and review police reports, and meet with and interview witnesses.

Filing a Claim

Because of the high rate of injury following a bicycle accident, bicycle riders in Temecula should be aware of the types of compensation they may be entitled to if they are injured in an accident. Bicycle riders may be entitled to any of the following types of compensation:

  • Medical costs
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life

Each bicycle accident case is unique and different, and while a bicycle rider who has been injured may be entitled to compensation for their injuries, it is not always clear how much they may be entitled to, and therefore it is important to work with an experienced Temecula bicycle accident lawyer to determine just how much a case may be worth.

An experienced lawyer will represent an injured bicycle rider’s best interest and can help them recover the compensation they are entitled to by investigating the accident, determining overall medical costs, and calculating lost income.
