San Jose Bicycle Accident Lawyers
San Jose Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Were you injured in a bike crash? If you or a loved one were the victims of a serious bicycle accident in San Jose, do not hesitate to contact Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. Our San Jose bicycle accident attorneys are highly experienced in handling these types of incidents. We are prepared to thoroughly investigate the crash and pursue full and fair compensation on your behalf. Some bike accident victims try to pursue compensation without a lawyer. They think they can work with the at-fault driver or other person’s insurance company. Unfortunately, an insurer does not have your best interests at heart. You may receive a settlement offer, but it will most likely be far less than what your claim is worth. By working with an experienced bicycle accident lawyer in San Jose, you have a greater chance of obtaining the maximum value of your claim. Our team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is proud to have helped more than 5,000 individuals and families obtain over $300 million in personal injury and wrongful death claims.

Are You Unsure of the Cause of the Bicycle Accident?
Just because you or a loved one was involved in a bike crash does not mean you know what happened. Vehicle-bicycle accidents often come out of nowhere. This is why it is important to have an experienced bicycle accident lawyer in San Jose to investigate the crash. Our attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers will conduct an independent and thorough investigation of the crash. We will gather as much evidence as possible, including:
- Photos of the crash and your injuries;
- Footage from surveillance, traffic, and dash cameras;
- The police report;
- Eyewitness accounts;
- Physical objects;
- Medical records;
- A medical expert’s opinions; and
- Other expert witnesses’ opinions.
If the at-fault driver was an employee, we will also demand to see business records in regard to the driver’s employment history and vehicle maintenance and repairs. We closely review and analyze the evidence to determine what type of negligence or gross negligence caused the crash. We use this evidence to build a strong case against the at-fault driver or their employer. Then, as we pursue an insurance claim settlement, we have a strong basis for demanding full and fair compensation for your bicycle accident injuries or your loved one’s passing.
San Jose Bicycle Accident Compensation
If you were struck by a vehicle while riding your bike and suffered serious injuries, our San Jose bike accident lawyers are here to help you fight for compensation. By building you the strongest case possible against the at-fault driver, as well as thoroughly documenting your physical, emotional, and financial injuries, we can demand the maximum compensation possible for your damages. We will aggressively pursue compensation for your:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reduced earning capacity
- Lower quality of life
- Property damage
In many personal injury claims, pain and suffering is a considerable portion of your damages. However, pain and suffering are not visible. You must take steps to establish the pain and suffering you have experienced during and following the accident. In addition to taking daily pictures of your injuries, we may recommend you keep a journal. The daily entries do not have to be long, but each day you should take note of your physical pain, the treatments you must go through to try and ease that pain, and your mental and emotional suffering. You should note your anxiety and depression. We also may recommend you seek mental health care to diagnose and treat any severe anxiety, depression, phobia, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
