Contact the Law Offices of Ronald B. Laba for your free evaluation today: 866-434-1577. To help guide you, we have provided the following frequently asked questions about bicycle accidents.

You’re not required to hire a lawyer if you were in a bicycle accident. But pursuing a claim without the assistance of an attorney may be a risky move. You may not see the results you need. In a 1994 study, the Insurance Research Council found that injured people using lawyers received over TWICE as much money as those without lawyers. And this was the result after paying the lawyer’s fees. Negligent drivers need to be held accountable for their actions. But while the cause of your accident may seem clear to you, insurance companies will try to minimize the liability of the driver. They will use tactics to keep the money out of your pocket – and they will be happy to find out you don’t have an attorney. Attorney Ronald B. Laba is ready to help. Contact us today to discuss your legal options with an attorney who knows how to negotiate with insurance companies and hold careless drivers responsible.

Yes. The insurance company for the driver who hit you on your bicycle will be responsible for reimbursing you

No two accidents are the same. The amount of damages – the monetary compensation you’re entitled to receive after an accident – varies from case-to-case. Victims have different background and legal needs. Depending on the scope and severity of an injury, bicycle accident victims may be entitled to recover compensation for medical bills, cost of future medical care, compensation for lost wages and loss of future earning capacity. Victims may also be able to receive damages for pain and suffering, and in rare cases, punitive damages meant to punish drivers who acted with gross negligence or malicious intent.

First of all, don’t admit fault to anyone. You might say something that can compromise any future bicycle accident claim. Contact an attorney right away. Injury victims may still have a right to pursue compensation for their bicycle accident – even if they share fault in the accident. California is a pure comparative fault state. Injured bicyclists can collect compensation for their accident on a percentage basis. For example, if an injury victim was awarded a settlement that totaled $100,000 and was found to be 25% at fault, he or she would collect $75,000 for the accident. Comparative fault allows accident victims to collect damages even if more at fault than the driver. For example, if an injured cyclist was 75% at fault and awarded the same settlement, he or she would still be able to collect $25,000 for the accident.
