Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Oceanside
Known for the beautiful beaches, Oceanside is a bicyclists’ dream town. Oceanside is home to many professional triathletes, and cyclists. The roadways are filled with cyclists on the weekends. That being said, cyclists are more than likely to get into an accident with a vehicle. Car accidents involving a bicyclist never ends well for the cyclist. The injuries tend to range from open wounds and broken bones to death. We are cyclists ourselves and understand the dangers of sharing the road with cars. It is important to know that all bicyclists have a legal right to the road. California law states vehicles must leave adequate space between the vehicle and the cyclist, 3 feet to be exact.
Bicycle Accidents Occur When:
- It is common for bicyclists to get struck by a distracted driver. With thousands of cars on the road, many drivers are in traffic and tend to use their phone, do their makeup, etc. There are too many times where drivers are distracted and drive directly into the path of a cyclist causing injury.
- Bicyclists also play victim to speeding, and a driver may not be able to break in time to avoid the cyclist.
If you are a bicycle accident victim, it is your legal right to seek compensation for the accident. Legally, cyclists must follow the rules of the road. Our attorneys solely practice personal injury litigation and have settled hundreds of bicycle accident cases to a successful resolution.
A common problem bicycle accident victims face is dealing with the driver’s insurance company. They will tend to blame the cyclist for part of the accident. Their job is to try to alleviate their financial liability by blaming you for part of the accident. That is where our attorneys come into play by countering when insurance adjusters try to minimize your claim.

Oceanside’s Top-Rated Accident Attorneys
As many bicycle accidents go unreported, we suggest every bicycle accident victim to get the driver’s information no matter if they are visibly injured. Bicyclists are in shock post-accident and tend to bike away, without getting any information from the driver. Then days later they may feel intense pain. Our qualified attorneys will fight for your rights. So, seek the necessary medical treatment to diagnose your injuries, and call our law office for a free consultation. Our Oceanside bicycle accident lawyers are ready to fight for you!
