Common Causes of Bike Accidents in Los Angeles
Every year, hundreds of bicyclists in Los Angeles get involved in serious traffic accidents. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, there has been a more than 60 percent increase in bicyclist deaths since 2010. Vehicle-bicycle collisions are often catastrophic or life-threatening for the biker, resulting in injuries such as broken bones, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. At the Liberatore Law Firm, our team of Los Angeles catastrophic injury attorneys is here to offer assistance
Bike accidents in LA County are almost always preventable. They frequently stem from driver errors, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Driver inattention
- Texting or cell phone use while driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failing to yield the right-of-way
- Red-light running
- Making unsafe lane changes
- Turning on top of cyclists
- Following or passing too closely
- Drowsy driving
Careless, reckless and inattentive drivers are the main cause of Los Angeles bicycle accidents. However, some collisions are traced back to nondriver issues, such as bicycle defects from the manufacturer and poorly maintained roads. The attorneys at The Liberatore Law Firm can investigate your bike accident to determine its cause and pursue compensation from the responsible party or parties.
What Are Your Rights as an Injured Bicyclist in Los Angeles?
California is a fault-based car accident state. This means that the injured party can seek a financial recovery from the at-fault party’s insurance provider. The driver who caused the crash will be held liable (financially responsible) for paying for the biker’s medical expenses and other losses through his or her automobile insurance. Every driver in California must carry minimum amounts of liability coverage to pay for at-fault accidents. An attorney can help you negotiate a fair insurance settlement for your Los Angeles bicycle accident.
What Types of Compensation Are Available?
With assistance from a lawyer at The Liberatore Law Firm, you may be able to collect financial compensation for various economic and noneconomic losses that you suffered because of the accident.
Holding another party responsible could lead to a payout for:
- Past and future medical costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of future capacity to earn
- Long-term disability expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Wrongful death, if applicable
We have the skills, resources and experience to maximize your financial recovery. Our lawyers will take the time to understand how your injuries have affected your life before pursuing the compensation that you deserve.
