BICYCLE ACCIDENTS  

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle accident injuries are unfortunately all to common. Each year more than 500,000 people are treated in hospital emergency rooms and more than 700 people die as a result of bicycle related injuries. Of these a majority are males. Fifty-nine percent of all victims are children age 15 or younger. The 700 plus who die each year represent two percent of all motor vehicle accident fatalities. Most of them die from head injuries.

At the Law Offices of Pirrone & Pirrone, LLP we are avid bicyclists and know what you have been through. We have specialized knowledge in all aspects of bicycle accident cases, especially unique issues such as California vehicle laws pertaining to bicycle riders and accident reconstruction. These are unique issues specific to bicycle accidents. Ideally those who ride never get hurt in an automobile vs. bicycle accident.

If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident, it is extremely important to talk to a qualified personal injury attorney without delay. If you wait too long, evidence in your case may be lost, witnesses may disappear, and insurance companies may take advantage of you.  The insurance agency's objective is to pay the least amount of money when settling bicycle related accidents. Having an attorney on your side can protect and maximize your best interests and can facilitate your recovery of damages in bicycle accidents. Unlike many other lawyers and law firms in California, we pride ourselves as giving our clients the service and attention they expect and deserve.  Once we accept your accident injury claim, an investigation is immediately started and swift action is taken to secure and preserve evidence pertinent to your claim. We work with accident reconstruction experts to prove that the other party is at fault, utilize medical experts to support your claim for the full extent of your injuries, and will work expeditiously to obtain for you the maximum compensation allowed by law.

An individual who negligently operates a motor vehicle may be liable for a wide variety of damages that an accident can cause, including but not limited to the following:
  • Medical Costs: You may recover the medical expenses you incur in treating your injuries. These costs may include bills incurred for treatment by hospitals, physicians, emergency rooms, ambulances and paramedics and physical therapists, and the cost of any needed medical devices. The cost of anticipated future medical costs may be recovered as well.
  • Pain and Suffering, Disability, and Mental and Emotional Distress: You may recover damages for physical pain, disfigurement and discomfort, disability from engaging in work or recreational activities and any type of mental or emotional distress or trauma you suffer as a result of the accident.
  • Loss of Earnings and Earning Capacity: You can recover damages for the amount of money you would have earned between the time of your injury and the settlement or judgment. You may also recover damages for lost earning capacity if your ability to earn money has been impaired.
  • Loss of Companionship: If you are married or in a domestic partnership, you may recover for the loss of the benefits of married or domestic partnered life to your spouse or partner caused by your injury.
  • Property Damage: You can recover the value of your property that was damaged in the accident.
  • Other Economic and Out of Pocket Costs: In addition to the economic costs associated with the items described above, you may recover damages for other economic harm and out of pocket expenses.
We have compiled a safety article which helps to identify types of accidents that bicycle riders (road) often are involved in. Hopefully, you can read this article BEFORE you or your loved one is injured in a bicycle accident.
