Maximizing Your Bicycle-Accident Compensation
California cyclists who are injured by the negligent/wrongful acts of a driver are entitled to receive a wide array of financial compensation. In a typical case, depending on the circumstances, an injured cyclist may be legally entitled to recover compensation for the cyclist’s past physical pain, future physical pain, past/future emotional suffering, past/future wage loss, the reasonable value of assistance-services provided by friends/family, loss of future earning, loss of enjoyment of life, property damage, and other categories.
We will properly evaluate your claim and seek to recover for you each and every category of compensation to which you are entitled. We will work with your doctors and other medical providers to prove that your injuries are real, and will work with you to prove the fullest extent of how the injuries have diminished your life. Part of this involves the use of your “injury diary.” To learn more about this crucial part of your claim, see our tips for keeping an “injury diary.”
If you were injured by a careless, negligent, reckless, or drunk driver, we strongly recommend that you contact us immediately. Oftentimes, delay can result in the loss of important evidence or the loss of a better bargaining position in negotiations with the driver or the driver’s insurance company.
Depending on the specific facts of your case, we 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. We are very experienced in handling such claims. We invite you to contact our firm for a free courtesy consultation.
