Santa Clara Attorneys Representing Clients Injured in Bicycle Accidents

Riding a bicycle can be one of the most enjoyable, health-conscious, and environmentally-friendly ways to get from place to place. Unfortunately, bicyclists are also at increased risk of serious injury or death when involved in car accidents. There are many ways bicycle-related car crashes happen. Sometimes, a motorist is not paying attention to the road and simply does not see the bicyclist. Other times, a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol when they hit a person riding a bike. When you are injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another party, it is only fair that the accountable party be held responsible for the costs associated with the accident.

Being hurt in a serious bicycle accident can result in needless suffering and costly medical expenses. The experienced professionals at the Fuller Law Firm help those injured in bicycle accidents acquire the compensation they need to recover their losses. We can help you secure damages related to medical bills, ongoing medical treatment, lost wages due to missed work, and more.

Dependable Legal Counsel for Those Hurt While Riding a Bike

The U.S. Department of Transportation reports that over 700,000 cyclists have been injured in traffic accidents in the last 10 years. Additionally, an estimated 8,000 fatalities resulted from cyclists being involved in car accidents during the same time period. A car accident involving a bicyclist can result in:

  • Traumatic brain injury;
  • Neck and spine injuries;
  • Broken bones;
  • Internal injuries;
  • Amputations;
  • Other life-altering injuries; and
  • Wrongful death

At the Fuller Law Firm, we protect the rights of those injured in bicycle accidents and help them recover as much compensation as possible for their injuries.

Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible for Cyclist Injuries

A car-on-bicycle accident can be a terrifying experience. The average passenger car weighs 4,000 pounds, while a bicycle may only weigh about 30 pounds or less. Cars, trucks, SUVs, and other motor vehicles are also equipped with advanced safety measures which a bicycle does not have. It is for these reasons that many car accidents involving a cyclist result in serious injury or death to the rider. If you or a loved one has been injured while riding a bike, you may have a long road toward recovery. It can take weeks, months, or even years to recover physically and emotionally from a serious accident.

Motorists who are driving while intoxicated, texting and driving, or otherwise not paying attention to the road put cyclists' lives at risk. Drivers who are distracted can veer into the bicycle lane, strike an unsuspecting cyclist, and do tremendous amounts of damage. Motorists have an obligation to follow the rules of the road and be vigilant for cyclists and pedestrians. When a driver neglects this duty, they can change the life of a cyclist and his or her family forever. At Fuller Law Firm, we believe that victims of negligence deserve to be compensated for the damages they have suffered. Let us help you hold the responsible party or parties fully accountable.
