Irvine Bicycle Accident Injury Attorney
Most bicyclists do what they can to maintain their safety while on the road. While many cyclists wear a helmet and other protective gear, follow the rules of the road and bike cautiously, they are still at risk of being hit by a car, truck or bus. Bikers have the right-of-way, but that doesn't mean that they won't get hit by a driver who doesn't see them, or doesn't see them in time to avoid a collision.
At the Krolikowski Law Firm, we assist California residents who have been injured in bicycle accidents by investigating the crash to determine what factors led to the accident and determining fault. We will collect any evidence, seek eyewitness testimony and use our knowledge of the law to fight aggressively to achieve the best results in your case. Contact us today at 949-625-4428 to schedule a free initial consultation.
California Personal Injury Lawyers
Most accidents come down to negligence, or recklessness. For example, if a driver was speeding, running a stop sign, talking on a cellphone or swerving into a bike lane, we will work to prove that he or she has violated his or her basic duty of care owed to others on or near the road.
In a bike accident involving another bike, you still have rights. If another biker cuts you off and forces you into a ditch or the side of a tree, he or she could be liable. In some cases, an individual's homeowners insurance will cover expenses incurred.
If you were injured in a bike accident, there are several important actions that you can take right away to help your case. If possible, get witness names, take photos of the accident site and take photos of any visible injuries before they heal. If you are in pain, go to the hospital to consult a doctor and get treatment if necessary. You can reach an Orange County bike crash attorney at the Krolikowski Law Firm to discuss your case.
