While riding a bicycle can be a cost-effective way to get around town, sharing the road with motor vehicles can be extremely dangerous.

Each year, thousands of people are injured in bicycle accidents across the United States and if you have been involved in an accident, do not hesitate to contact Caputo & Van Der Walde today. Our Campbell Personal Injury lawyers are highly knowledgeable of the laws and regulations specific to bicycle accidents.

Liability in a Bicycle Accident Claim

Every case will have unique factors and the parties who can be held responsible for your damages will depend on the circumstances of your accident. Among the most common reasons for accidents on the road are distracted drivers. While cars and trucks have a legal obligation to share the road with bicycles, motorists do not always uphold their duty of care. When the negligent actions of a driver lead to an accident, they can be liable for resulting damages.

Bicycle and parts manufacturers can also incur liability if they knowingly release dangerous or defective products. Typically, a defect can be present in the design, manufacture, or marketing of a product. For example, if you are traveling down the road at 40 miles per hour and your brakes malfunction, anyone responsible for a product's initial design to the sale and advertising of that item may be taken to court for damages. Our firm knows where to look and how to investigate to discover the parties who are responsible for your accident.

Compensation for Victims of Bicycle Accidents

Injuries which occur in a bicycle accident are often far more severe than in crashes between other vehicles. While a helmet does afford a rider some protection, neck, spine, and head injuries are common and can require prolonged medical treatment. It is vital that the compensation you receive fully covers the cost of current and projected medical care. During the claims process, we can deal with the at-fault party’s insurance to see that you are treated fairly.

Our attorneys can help you to seek compensation for damages including:

  • Pain & suffering
  • Damage to property
  • Missed work
  • Hindered income potential
  • Reduced quality of life
