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.
