We Are Here to Protect Your Rights
While the number of bicycle accident deaths in 2010 was the lowest since 1984, 99 such fatalities occurred, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety. Bicyclists are at great risk on the road. Exposed to the elements and traffic with only a helmet to protect them, they are at the mercy of passenger cars and trucks.
In 2011 throughout the United States, 677 pedalcyclists (including two-wheeled non-motorized vehicles, tricycles, and unicycles) were killed and 48,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes. Nearly 70% of these deaths took place in urban areas and nearly 60% outside of intersections. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported alcohol involvement in more than 37% of the fatal pedalcyclist crashes.
Determining Fault in a Bicycle Accident
Bicycle accident claims can be complex. Our team of forensic specialists, accident reconstructionists, and safety engineers evaluates evidence and determines contributing factors, such as whether the motor vehicle that struck the bicyclist was speeding. We also evaluate dangerous hazards, such as slick sidewalks and improperly lit parking lots.
