The Proper Legal Strategies
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.
