When Can I File a Lawsuit Over a Bicycle Accident?

Filing a successful lawsuit after a bike accident is hinged on your ability to prove another person caused your crash and that they should be held liable for your damages.

At Drake Law Firm, we offer FREE consultations to review the facts of victims’ cases and determine if they may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. While every case is different, there are many situations that can give victims the right to file suit. Examples include:

  • Accidents caused by negligent drivers
  • Crashes caused by bus drivers or commercial truck operators
  • Drunk driving or distracted driving accidents
  • Defective products or bicycle parts
  • Unsafe property conditions / roadway defects
  • Companies responsible for e-bike accidents

What Damages Can Bicycle Accident Victims Recover?

Victims of personal injury have the right to recover compensation from those who negligently caused their accidents. This compensation is meant to cover financial and emotional losses victims incur as a direct result of their injuries. 

In California, bicycle accident victims may recover compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Hospital and medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and future income
  • Lost quality of life / spousal loss of consortium
  • Disfigurement / disability
  • Property damage

Because bicycle accident victims are more likely to suffer life-altering injuries in traffic accidents than occupants in standard vehicles, maximizing a financial recovery is important to covering past expenses and paying for any future needs. 

This can include the costs of medical devices, medications, or surgeries a person is likely to require in the future, as well as lost wages if serious injuries affect a person’s ability to work and earn income.

What Can I Do If My Child or Spouse Was Killed in a Bike Accident?

Bicyclists unfortunately face greater risks of suffering fatal injuries in crashes with automobiles. If your loved one was killed in a preventable bicycle accident, you may be able to seek justice and a financial recovery of your damages by pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit

Recoverable damages in wrongful death cases may include:

  • Expenses for funeral or burial services
  • Loss of emotional support / loss of companionship
  • Lost value of household services a decedent would have provided
  • Lost financial support, including lost income and benefits
  • Medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred by a decedent prior to death

Wrongful death and survival actions are complex and high stakes claims, and they should be handled by experienced lawyers who can fight back against insurance companies that want to minimize payments to victims.
