Brea Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Because few cyclists can withstand the impact of a massive motor vehicle, bike accidents can be especially catastrophic.

That is where our legal team comes in. Throughout the years, our Brea bicycle accident attorneys have recovered more than $300 million in settlements and trial verdicts, a substantial portion of which was in bicycle accident cases. If you have suffered injuries from a bicycle accident, we encourage you to seek help before critical evidence fades or the applicable statute of limitations tolls. To discuss your case with a member of our team, call 1-800-GO-HARRIS today.

Pursuing Compensation for Your Bicycle Accident
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, our team of experienced, compassionate lawyers will assist you in seeking compensation for the physical, emotional, psychological, and financial damages stemming from your wreck. You can seek to recoup “compensatory damages” for the following types of losses:
- Past, current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages and reduced future earning potential due to lasting or permanent disfigurement
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional and psychological distress
- Permanent disfigurement or disability
- Reduced quality of life
- Property damage
In some cases, you may also be entitled to recover “punitive damages.” Your attorney will examine the specific facts of your case to determine whether you have grounds to bring a claim for punitive damages.
From Minor to Catastrophic Injuries
The injuries stemming from bicycle accidents can range from minor to catastrophic. A minor injury is one that does not result in lasting or substantial damage like brain or spinal cord damage. Conversely, catastrophic injuries are life-altering and as such, generally warrant much higher monetary recoveries. This is because they often result in a lifetime of lost income and medical care. Because the stakes are so high, in cases of catastrophic injuries, insurance adjusters will scrutinize your case and seek reasons to deny your claim. Additionally, because of the severity of the injuries and the seriousness of the claim, a catastrophic injury makes it less likely that you will receive a fair settlement amount. When this happens, our team is poised to take your case to trial and vigorously represent your interests to a California judge or jury.
Bicycle Accidents Resulting in Wrongful Death
The loss of a loved one is always devastating, but the loss is especially raw when someone else’s negligent or reckless conduct is to blame. Our attorneys represent the family members of accident victims and are ready to help you pursue compensation for your loss. At the same time, we understand that no amount of money can bring your loved one back, so we strive to treat our clients with compassion and care.
