At Spital & Associates, we know and understand the law when it comes to a cyclist being involved in a bicycle accident.
While riding in a marked bike lane:
Even when you or a family member observes the law, you can be struck by a moving car &/or a parallel parked vehicle. One of the biggest problems for a cyclist while riding in a bike lane occurs when a driver or passenger suddenly opens his/her car door to exist the vehicle that is parked at the curb or side of the road.
Clearly, you or a loved one can be trapped as a rider on the one side by the parked vehicle and on the other side by moving vehicles leaving you little or no room to maneuver around and avoid the opening car door. These are called “dooring injury accidents.” While many individuals respect cyclists using the bike lane, others may be negligent in opening their car into this door zone
Being struck by a Careless Driver:
Even though a cyclist is vigilant, there are reckless drivers who are not. If your bicycle accident was due to a driver’s negligence or misconduct, our San Diego bicycle injury lawyers will fight to prove his/her liability.
A Crash due to Road Hazards:
A bicycle rider is always alert to poorly maintained streets and roads. When these defects are the cause of bicycle accidents, however, our clients are entitled to recover for their pain and suffering; current and future medical bills, lost wages and more.
Whether there was a partially raised manhole cover, construction plate, pothole, street cut, ditch or trench, improperly paved street or road, we seek to establish this is a defective street or road condition.
Our San Diego bicycle injury lawyers have access to forensic traffic experts, road and highway design specialists and investigators to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Call or send an email to Spital & Associates today if you or a loved one is facing injuries or wrongful death in a San Diego bicycle accident. Our San Diego bicycle injury lawyers have the medical knowledge and fully understand the technical aspects of accident reconstruction.
We are meticulous in getting to know our clients, their case, and the impact a bicycle accident can have on their life. Your case will be accepted on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not pay San Diego bike injury attorney’s fees unless you receive a recovery by a settlement or after a verdict in a trial. We are available 7 days a week, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Contact us now!
