When a car collides with a bicycle, it is always the bicyclist who pays the price.

Who Was at Fault?
Fault is often contested in accidents involving bikes. Police reports may put blame wrongly on the bicyclist, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t recover compensation for your damages. If you contact our bike accident lawyers soon enough we can hire experts to examine the accident scene, skid marks (or the lack thereof) and vehicle damage to find answers to questions such as:
- How fast was the other person driving
- Whether the driver attempted to brake or take evasive action
- Whether the bicyclist had reasonable reaction time to avoid a collision
- Where the bicycle was when the impact occurred
Even if you were partially or primarily at fault for the accident, you can still recover compensation from the driver of the motor vehicle if he or she was also at fault. In California, your recovery from an accident involving a motor vehicle is reduced by any percentage of fault that can be assigned to you. However, you can still recover compensation for the percentage of fault assigned to the other driver.
Contingency fee representation: Our San Francisco bicycle accident lawyers handle bicycle accident cases on a contingency fee basis. We pay all upfront costs of investigating your accident and only recover those expenses if we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.
