Injured In A Bicycle Accident? Let Us Help You Hold The At-Fault Driver Accountable.

Over the years, cycling has gained popularity amongst amateurs and enthusiasts alike. While California laws have expanded to provide added protection for bicyclists, riders on the road are still in danger. Bicycle accidents can involve cars, trucks or semi trucks. The injuries from bicycle accidents can range from bruising and broken bones to death. Bicyclists have the same rights to safety as motor vehicle drivers, and the Law Office of Brian H. Turner believes in protecting those rights. Call the firm at 916.229.8800 to schedule your free consultation.

Most Bicycle Accidents Can Be Attributed To Driver Negligence

Bicycle accidents often occur because of negligent car and truck drivers who forget to look and signal before turning or changing lanes, thus ignoring their surroundings. People forget that bicycles have a right to operate on most of the same roads as motor vehicles. More disappointing is the fact that some people believe bicyclists have no right to be on the road or should be forced to ride on sidewalks. Such mindsets are some of the reasons for the increase in accidents and deaths of bicyclists.

Available Compensation For Injured Riders

As a cyclist, you have a right to be on the road and a right to be compensated if the driver of another vehicle causes you harm because of their reckless driving. Bicycle accident victims may be entitled to receive compensation for:

  • Medical expenses and treatment
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical treatment

In some cases, bicyclists can also claim punitive damages, which are awarded to punish and deter the conduct committed by the other party.
