When You Can Pursue Bicycle Accident Compensation
You may wonder whether you are entitled to compensation after a bike crash or not. This depends on whether another person was entirely or mostly at fault for the accident and your injuries. If another party, whether it was a motorist, cyclist, or pedestrian, is 51% or more responsible for the accident, then talk with a Fullerton bicycle accident lawyer about pursuing compensation.
To receive an insurance settlement or a court ruling in your favor, you will need to prove the other party failed to act as a reasonably prudent person would under the same or similar circumstances. You must establish that the other party was careless, that this carelessness directly and proximately led to the collision, and that the collision caused you physical injuries.
Establishing Your Bicycle Accident Case
To establish the elements of your personal injury claim after a bicycle accident, you need to gather evidence. We do not suggest you do this yourself. Instead, hire an experienced Fullerton bicycle accident attorney to thoroughly investigate the accident and gather evidence. We will begin by getting a copy of the crash report, photos, and videos of the crash and aftermath, and eyewitness accounts.
We also may recommend filing a personal injury lawsuit to enable us to gather additional evidence through the discovery process. During discovery, we demand certain information and records from the other party. This is a critical process if there are several other parties involved or a business may be responsible for the accident.
Additionally, we may hire one or more experts. By working with various well-trained and highly experienced professionals, we may be able to better establish the other party’s fault or your injuries.
