Many Bicycle Accidents Are Caused by Motorist’s Negligence
Far and wide, the leading cause of bike crashes is a driver’s carelessness or recklessness. Our bicycle accident lawyers in Oxnard often handle injury claims arising from:
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
- Drunk driving
- Drugged driving
- Failing to check blind spots
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Opening a door in a cyclist’s path
- Poor weather conditions
- Bad road conditions
After a vehicle-bike collision, we will thoroughly investigate what happened. We will review the police report, gather and analyze any available photos and video footage, talk with eyewitnesses, and when necessary, hire accident reconstruction experts to determine exactly what happened and why.

- Medical Bills

- Property Damage
- Pain and Suffering

We Handle the Insurance Claim Process
By gathering and analyzing all available evidence, we can build a strong claim for compensation. We will present the evidence to the insurance company, along with evidence of the type and extent of your injuries and pain and suffering, and demand you receive compensation. You do not have to worry about the insurance claim process when you work with us at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. We will handle the paperwork, respond to the insurer’s phone calls and letters, and guide you through your parts in the process, such as making a formal statement. If your claim is approved and the insurer offers a settlement, we will talk with you about whether it is a good offer, or we believe we can negotiate for more. In many cases, an initial offer is a low-ball sum. The insurer will try to limit how much it has to pay. We are not afraid of entering into negotiations with the insurer. In fact, we negotiate for higher settlements in most of our cases. We always fight for our clients to receive the maximum compensation possible for their injuries.
We Will Fight for You in Court
If the insurer denies your claim or refuses to settle for a fair amount, then we may recommend moving forward with a personal injury lawsuit. Our Oxnard bicycle accident lawyers are experienced litigators. Though a majority of personal injury claims are resolved through insurance settlements, that does not mean you can ignore the court process. You need to work with an attorney who is confident and comfortable in the courtroom and prepared to take your case through trial.
