While cyclists must obey traffic laws, motorists are required to maintain a safe distance from bicycles, respect bike lanes, and shoulder the burden of safety when cars and bikes share the road. Unfortunately, accidents do occur – and often the vulnerable cyclist suffers from injury.
Cycling accidents can be devastating, resulting in serious injuries that can affect you for the rest of your life.
Whether you have suffered a cycling accident because the driver of a motor vehicle caused you injury while riding your bike or because of a hazardous bike path that the city or county left unfixed, we will fight for the full compensation that you deserve, including medical costs, lost wages, bike repairs, pain and suffering.
