Causes of Bike Accidents
One of the biggest reasons that vehicles crash into bicycles is not so much to do with the bike’s smaller size, since they are perfectly visible in mirrors. Instead, many drivers are simply careless and negligent, often ignorant of their surroundings. This negligence is what our lawyers seek to demonstrate to the court.
Other common causes for bicycle accidents include:
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving while being distracted (especially by mobile devices and the use of texting)
- Defects in the road
- Defects in automobile
- Lack of sleep on the part of the driver
- Having road rage while driving
- Bad weather conditions
- Refusing to obey appropriate signals and street signs
Why You Need Our Bike Accident Lawyers
Always remember that insurance adjusters are not here to help you. Instead, these companies profit by reducing expenses and paying the lowest form of aid. Many insurance corporations have been known to utilize deceitful strategies in order to deny your claim for support, or at least reduce the compensation as much as possible. This is why a legal representative is crucial in helping determine liability and advocating for your side. Not only will our lawyers help prove the other side’s negligence, but they will demonstrate how much you and your family deserve for your pain and long-term suffering.

Immediately get in contact with our proactive bicycle accident lawyers in Los Angeles, so that they can seek recompense for your mental, physical, and emotional suffering.
