BICYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER LOS ANGELES

Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists have little protection when compared to a motorist on the road. Thus, getting into a bicycle accident can have profound physical, emotional and financial setbacks for victims and their families. A bicycle accident may even cause death to the rider of the bicycle in certain cases. Unfortunately, njured cyclists may encounter various challenges to recovering for their injuries including navigating complex laws, dealing with litigious insurers, and sorting through the sometimes complicated facts of injury, such as where a head trauma was sustained. Trying to fight a case without a bicycle lawyer is difficult, and the injured cyclist can often walk away with little to no compensation for their pain and suffering. If you or a loved one find yourself in this position, Point Law Group, LLP can help you seek justice and recover a full and fair amount of compensation for your injuries. Recovering compensation may in fact prove critical to getting the injured party’s life back on track.

What to do After A Bicycle Crash?

  • Call the Police & File a Report

As in most cases after an accident, call the police and create an accident report. In the heat of the moment many things can be misinterpreted, so double check that the police officer has the correct information before they leave and remedy any errors or misunderstandings. The police will also help to establish credibility and help to get any witness statements as well as information from all parties involved. Obtaining the police officer’s business card is also a good way to maintain a line of connection if necessary. 

  • Exchange your information

Take down the name, address, phone number, drivers license, license plate, and insurance from the other party involved, and if there are any witnesses try to get their contact information. This can be really important to any case you may wish to build and is better to have an not need than need and not have. 

  • Take Pictures and Videos

If possible, make sure you or get pictures of the scene. If your phone is ruined maybe a willing witness may help you. Leave the car and the bike as they are after the accident, if it is possible to do so safely, for the police to inspect and record. Take pictures of your bike, their car, the road conditions, signs, and any other items relevant to the situation. You never know what could be useful and it doesn’t hurt to have them. 

  • Don’t Make Statements

Without the council of a lawyer DO NOT make any statements about the accident, on social media, written, recorded, or otherwise. It is best to exercise your 5th amendment right and remain silent. Don’t apologize because this can be taken as an admission of fault regardless of intent. Don’t take the blame, regardless of fault and don’t negotiate with the other party. Anything you say or write can be used against you so be very careful with what you choose to say and do. 

  • Immediately Get Medical Attention

Do not wait to get medical attention. Even if you don’t think you got injured and feel totally fine, go to the doctor. Some injuries may not present right away due to adrenaline and other underlying factors masking the pain. If you do not seek medical attention right away and you find you do have an injury later on, you may not be able to file a claim.

These losses can include damages to personal items such as phone, backpack, clothing, as well as your bicycle, to having to take time off of work, along with any pain and other suffering you incur.

How Drivers Endanger Bikers In LA?

Drivers can endanger bikers in many ways in LA.The city has begun to make an effort to include bike lanes on main roads, however there are still many streets where these bike lanes are nowhere to be found. Cyclists are already hard to spot and because most drivers are paying more attention to traffic signals, and or may be distracted by other things, they may not be keeping an eye out for bikes. This topped with the added hostility and reckless drivers affiliated with our fair city, it amounts to a powder keg ready to explode. 

Unsafe road conditions lend to further obstacles for cyclists to overcome on a daily basis, which include the dreaded pothole and debris among other items that may become a deterrent at best and detrimental at worst. If you or anyone you know has been in a bike accident, call the best los angeles bike accident lawyer at Point Law Group at (310) 560 – 0606.
