Redwood City Bicycle Accident Attorney
Bicyclists, even when wearing a helmet and other protective gear, are very vulnerable to other motor vehicles during an accident. Collisions cause some of the most serious injuries, including head trauma, brain damage and spinal cord injuries. If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle accident in the Redwood City and Palo Alto areas, know that you can seek legal compensation for damages suffered. Negligent parties should be held accountable for their actions, especially if they were reckless and disregarded the safety of others on the road, including bicyclists and pedestrians.

Serious Injuries and Fatal Accidents
Unfortunately, bicycle accident victims often have very serious/catastrophic injuries. Many are permanent and can impair the victim for the rest of his or her life. We will fight hard to seek maximum compensation for damages, including past and future medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity as well as pain and suffering.
If you have lost a loved one in a bicycle accident, we can file a wrongful death claim on behalf of his or her estate. These are the most devastating of accident cases, and we are there for our clients every step of the way.
Fault in Bicycle Accidents
One of the more hotly contested issues in a bicycle accident case is who was at fault? Fault does not have to be attributed in an all or nothing fashion. However, if the other party or even the police officer who was at the scene of the accident attributed any fault to you, we will strongly represent you to prove otherwise. Even if you are found at fault, it does not mean you are not entitled to compensation. Under California personal injury law, while your recovery may be reduced based on the percentage you are at fault, you are not excluded at any point from recovery because of attributed fault.
Our experienced bicycle accident attorneys will work with experts to review the accident site for evidence. This may include skid marks, damage to your bicycle, damage to other motor vehicles, property damage and witness statements. The sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can start working on your case.
