San Pedro Bike Accident Attorneys
Whether you are suffering from physical or emotional injuries or have lost wages due to an inability to work because of your accident injuries, you should not have to continue to suffer financially. That is where our attorneys come in. Throughout the years, our bicycle accident attorneys have recovered more than $300 million in settlements and trial verdicts – many of which were on behalf of bike accident victims.
If someone else caused your accident, our personal injury firm is here to represent you. Our bicycle accident attorneys have successfully represented clients in all types of bicycle accidents, pursuing the maximum compensation available through both insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits.
These are some of the many bicycle accident cases for which we have won large settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients in San Pedro:
- Drunk driving bicycle accidents
- Distracted driving bicycle accidents
- Accidents caused by poor road conditions
- Accidents caused by defective bicycle parts
No matter the circumstances, our attorneys can evaluate the facts of your case, determine whether you have grounds for a claim, and identify the potentially liable parties.
Catastrophic vs. Minor Injuries
The impact of a bike accident can range in severity from minor to catastrophic. Cases involving catastrophic injuries proceed very differently from those that result only in minor injuries.
Catastrophic injuries result in much higher monetary recoveries – often in the millions. This is because catastrophic injuries often result in a lifetime of lost income and medical care. When the stakes are so high, insurers will closely examine every aspect of the case, looking for reasons to either deny it or to reduce your recovery. Not to mention, 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 from an insurance company. This means it is more likely that a catastrophic injury case will go to trial.
Even if you sustained only minor injuries, you should still consider reaching out to a lawyer. Our attorneys offer free case reviews, so you have nothing to lose by contacting us. We can help you decide whether it is worth pursuing a claim, given your injuries and losses, and at the least, we can help you move forward after a stressful event.
Bicycle Accidents Resulting in Wrongful Death
The loss of a loved one is especially devastating when someone else is at fault. Pursuing legal action for your loss may be the last thing you want to do, however, consider contacting a lawyer to discuss your options. As time passes, key evidence can disappear, and the statute of limitations may toll. If you decide you’d like to seek compensation to help you get back on your feet financially, you should ensure you at least have the option.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we represent the family members of those who have died in bicycle accidents. Our attorneys understand that no figure can adequately fill the void left by a loss, and so we treat all our clients with compassion at every stage of the process.
