Bicycle Accidents: A Vulnerable Proposition
Bicycle accidents can take a deadly turn in the blink of an eye, as too many motorists fail to obey the rules of the road and take extra care when operating around bikers. Riding a bike along busy city streets – especially high automobile traffic areas in Palmdale – can pose a threat to your safety, despite the fact that you’re making the right choice to reduce emissions and get around town by keeping fit.
The Palmdale/Lancaster area boasts more than 500,000 residents. That translates to a lot of motorists on the road—especially downtown, where congested stop-and-go traffic often leads to unfortunate bicycle accidents. Did you know that collisions with motor vehicles are by far the biggest hazard in bicycling, accounting for at least four-fifths of all fatalities? (This is according to the Journal of American Medical Association.)
Your Palmdale Injury Attorney Gets Results
As your proven Personal Injury Attorneys in Palmdale, you can feel good about our 45-year history of collecting more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts. This is all thanks to our unrelenting personal injury legal team that refuses to give up until they secure the full value you’re entitled to. Don’t worry: often times, we can achieve this without seeing the inside of a courtroom.
Representing high levels of devastation to both the rider and his family, bicycle accident cases can bring about catastrophic injuries, unimaginable medical bills and even wrongful death.
Unlike a pedestrian accident, where the person is generally standing still or simply walking, a bike accident has the potential for a higher rate of injury due to the speed of both vehicles colliding at the same time. Unfortunately, though, bicyclists typically have a harder time collecting damages than a pedestrian. When bike accidents are the result of a hit and run, as they commonly are due to cowardly motorists who flee the scene of the crime, locating the responsible party poses a problem as well.
You may assume your insurance company will take care of you and award you the financial payout you deserve. Not so. They tend to follow a strict model of paying out as little as possible in these types of cases, leaving you with unpaid bills well into the future. Insurance claims adjusters use what’s called comparative negligence when evaluating how much an injured biker should receive. They use this to their advantage to get the total settlement value reduced rather than provide full insurance coverage due the injured party.
Adjusters will try to lessen the value of the claim by saying it was the injured bicyclist who was at fault. The result? You’re left with mounting bills. What can you do?
Call an experienced Palmdale injury attorney to recover full damages. We are not intimidated by these unscrupulous claims adjusters who want to get away with as little a payout as possible. Our team works diligently to get you the maximum compensation owed.
We have found that bicycle injuries and deaths can occur due to the fault of a motor vehicle driver engaging in the following destructive and potentially devastating behaviors:
- Careless or distracted driving while making turns
- Failure to yield to pedestrian right of way, such as a crosswalk
- Alcohol or drug use (DUI)
- Texting or using a smart phone while driving
Our personal injury attorneys have the tools necessary to cut through the red tape of insurance companies and the court system. Our goal is to get you compensation for medical bills, physical therapy bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
