After considering the specific facts of your case, the specialists at Bay Area Bicycle Law will know exactly which legal claims to bring on your behalf. These may include claims for negligence, recklessness, violations of the California Vehicle Code, insurance “bad faith,” agency/vicarious liability, negligent entrustment, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and spoliation of evidence, among others.
In cases in which the driver violated multiple provisions of the California Vehicle Code, it is important to choose the most legally-compelling violation on which to base the cyclist’s claim. Unfortunately, most attorneys choose the first one that pops into their head, without considering the hidden legal ramifications or defenses that can come back later to hurt the cyclist’s case.
Please be aware that these case results do not constitute a guarantee, warranty, or prediction regarding the outcome of your legal matter. Every case is different and case values turn on small facts and differences. Thus, the results achieved on one case do not necessarily mean the attorney will achieve the same result, or a similar result, even for a case which may have some similarities.
