Your Go-To Bike Accident Attorney in Los Angeles
The Los Angeles metro area is home to more than 13 million people at last count, second largest behind New York City in population. With grid plan streets, including the 43-mile Sepulveda Boulevard and 60-mile Foothill Boulevard, there are countless opportunities for accidents of all kinds.
Bicycle accidents are, unfortunately, a common occurrence here, as many people take to their bikes to navigate the clogged LA roadways. Legendary for its traffic congestion, LA is a dangerous place to drive, let alone bike. About 600 people lose their lives annually in the United States to bicycle accidents, according to the Journal of American Medical Association.
Choose the Best for Car Accident Settlements
Although you’re doing your duty as a good citizen by staying fit and reducing emissions by riding your bike, this practice could get you hurt or even killed. In the event you have been involved in this type of accident, you’ll need compensation to cover any work you may miss, along with mounting medical bills, physical therapy, and pain and suffering.
Kuzyk Law, your trusted accident attorney in Los Angeles County, will fight your case as though you were a close family member. We provide a full suite of legal services, ranging from medical referrals to comprehensive legal filing services.
Kuzyk Law has been hard at work handling bicycle accident cases since 1971. As the area’s only personal injury law firm that has handled exclusively personal injury claims for more than four decades, we know how to obtain the maximum payout possible – even when push comes to shove. We are diligent in recovering full damages, and aren’t intimidated by insurance claims adjusters who are looking to get away with minimum payouts.
Our shrewd defense team can cut through the red tape of insurance companies and the local court system that so often work against you to prevent you from full-value compensation.
Hit-and-Run Bicycle Accidents
Hit and run incidents make up a large part of bicycle accidents in Los Angeles. The injuries sustained by a bicyclist are even more serious and long-lasting than that of a pedestrian due to the moving nature of both vehicles as they collide. Attempting to locate the responsible party involved in a hit and run can add an additional layer of complexity to a case that’s already difficult to prove. That’s why you need a targeted, experienced approach that gets you the full value you’re due.
Motor vehicle drivers are often to blame for bicycle accidents due to:
- Careless or distracted driving while making turns
- Texting or talking on phone while driving
- Failure to yield to pedestrian right of way, such as a crosswalk
- Alcohol or drug use (DUI)
If you’re unfamiliar with personal injury law, you may assume your insurance company is on your side working to get you the financial payout you deserve. You would be wrong.
Insurance adjusters evaluate claims based on something called comparative negligence to determine the amount their insured client should receive. In a self-serving insurance industry, insured parties are often left responsible for paying insurmountable medical and therapy bills, as well as lost wages well into the future. Adjusters will go so far as to place sole blame on the bicyclist in order to further lessen the value.
We know how tragic the aftermath of a bicycle accident can be. While you’re trying to recover in peace and provide for your family at the same time, the medical and rehab bills keep filling your mail box. It’s not fair that you should be responsible for paying those bills due to the negligence of another. Kuzyk Law is on your side when it seems no one else is!
