Fighting for Your Financial Recovery

Bicycle accident victims injured by negligent or wrongful acts are entitled to a financial recovery of their damages. If you have a viable claim, you can hold at-fault parties liable for your economic and non-economic damages. This can include compensation for:

  • Hospital and medical bills
  • Chiropractic care and rehabilitation
  • Medical devices, medications, and future medical needs
  • Missed wages and lost future earnings
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish / loss of quality of life

While every case is unique, many bicycle accidents offer victims an opportunity to pursue other damages. These often concern losses resulting from serious injuries or wrongful death. For example:

  • A spouse’s loss of consortium
  • Loss of companionship and emotional support
  • Loss of household services

Who Can I Hold Liable for My Bike Accident?

As a victim of personal injury, you have the right to take legal action against any person or party that bears responsibility for causing your accident. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your crash, this could include:

  • A negligent driver. Motorists have a legal duty to exercise care behind the wheel. If they fail to meet this duty, they can be held liable. Examples of negligence can include failing to yield, running a stop sign, driving in shoulders or safety zones, driving under the influence, and other acts that lead to preventable car accidents
  • A negligent property owner. Businesses, restaurants, and other landowners have a duty to fix potential hazards on their property, including hazards that could injure cyclists. If your bicycle accident resulted from unsafe conditions on someone’s property, you may be able to hold them liable for damage by bringing a premises liability claim. 
  • A product manufacturer. Under California’s law, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of defective products can be held strictly liable for damages suffered by victims. Known as products liability, this can apply to a defective bicycle or a faulty bike component.
  • A commercial company. Employers are responsible for the conduct of their employees, and they can be held liable for damages caused by their workers. If someone who was working at the time caused your accident, such as in the case of a construction site accident or truck accident, their employer may be held liable.

These are only a few examples of potential defendants in bicycle accident claims. Determining who bears liability for your accident and damages will require a personalized review of your case.
