Campbell Bicycle Accidents Lawyer

Injured in a Bike Crash? Call (800) 900-0863

While riding a bicycle can be a cost-effective way to get around town, sharing the road with motor vehicles can be extremely dangerous. When bicycle accidents do occur, victims often suffer catastrophic injuries, as bicyclists are offered little protection against the size, power, and momentum of larger vehicles.

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

Unsure if you have a legal claim? Request a free consultation today to get the answers you need: (800) 900-0863.

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 after an auto accident if they knowingly release dangerous or defective products. Typically, a defect can be present in the design, manufacture, or marketing of a product, such as a bicycle.

Compensation for Bicycle Accident Victims

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 treatment.

It is vital that the compensation you receive fully covers the cost of your current and projected medical care, as well as any lost income. During the claims process, we can deal with the at-fault party’s insurance to see that you are treated fairly.

Our firm can help you to seek compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Damage to property
  • Missed work/lost wages
  • Hindered income potential
  • Reduced quality of life
