Why Do I Need a Bicycle Accident Specialist?
Familiarity and experience with bicycle accident cases is extremely important in getting a favorable result. These cases are vastly different than those involving other types of vehicle collisions and traffic incidents. For example, the laws that apply to traffic collisions vary greatly when a bicycle is involved in a collision. In fact, some laws may not apply at all if a bicyclist is injured rather than a motorist. Additionally, insurance coverage and the medical issues or injuries that are commonly associated with bicycle injuries are very different when a cyclist is involved in an accident.
If you are represented by an attorney who does not understand the law, policy and nuance involved in your case, there is a very real possibility that you will not receive a favorable result. Our attorneys take pride in maintaining an up-to-date and comprehensive understanding of bike accident law and representing our injured clients for a cause that we believe in.
Know Your Rights as a Bicyclist in Northern California
Understanding your rights as a cyclist on the road is invaluable to your bicycle accident case. In the state of California, bicycle laws fall under the California Vehicle Code. Specifically, CVC 21200 states that all bicyclists more or less share the same rights and responsibilities on the road as motor vehicles. All cyclists must follow the same rules of right-of-way, traffic flow, and traffic signs as motor vehicle drivers – and likewise, motorists must respect the rights of cyclists on the road. If a motorist fails to respect your presence on the road, resulting in an irresponsible accident, they may be fully liable for your injuries – and you may have the right to pursue compensation for any resultant damages.
At Bay Area Bicycle Law, we work hard to protect the rights of cyclists on the road. When you contact us, we can help you understand your circumstances and who may be liable for your injuries. If you have were injured because of someone else’s wrongdoing, we will fight for a fair recovery on your behalf to help you get your life back to the way it was before your crash.

Insurance companies are for profit. The insurance company may be difficult, combative, or take unreasonable positions. Adjusters often presume you are exaggerating or lying. The insurance company also has a tactical advantage in that they negotiate claims day-in-day-out, whereas this may be your first time making an insurance claim. Therefore, if you have serious injuries or high medical bills, it is often best to hire an attorney to help you with your claim.
