Carlsbad Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicycling is a popular hobby in Carlsbad, where we see many families on the side of the road enjoying time together as they ride. Increasingly, bicycling is an important way of getting around town, as it requires no gasoline and emits no pollution. However, any cyclist is at risk of serious injury in a crash. There is no question that you will suffer the brunt of any collision with a motor vehicle. Even worse, numerous road hazards could send you flying if you run over them. Contact Pursley Law Firm today to discuss your legal rights with an accomplished Carlsbad bicycle accident lawyer. You might have important rights to seek compensation for your accident.

Can You Receive Compensation for a Bicycle Accident?

Our firm receives calls from injured cyclists who are unsure of whether they can receive compensation. The answer is a resounding “yes.” If someone else is to blame for your wreck, then California law requires that they compensate you. It is that simple. Of course, fault can be shared. As a cyclist, you might have cut a driver off or been weaving in between cars when you were hit. But your negligence will only reduce the compensation you receive. You can still sue unless you were 100% at fault, which is rare.

Our legal team is committed to helping injured cyclists in the settlement process, and we have ample experience:

  • Talking to witnesses who observed the crash to find out who is at fault.
  • Inspecting a bicycle for defects, like defective brakes or tires.
  • Gathering a copy of the police report to review.
  • Communicating with insurance companies about your injuries and your claim.
  • Helping you access medical care, including specialist care.
  • Negotiating for fair compensation with the defendant’s insurer.
  • Filing a lawsuit if negotiations falter.

You should not have to do any of this. Instead, you can focus on your physical and emotional recovery. Many injured bicyclists are struggling with fractures, road rash, concussions, and back injuries. They might also have psychological scars, especially children.

An experienced lawyer will help negotiate compensation for your damages, including:

  • Damage to your bicycle
  • Medical bills for your injuries
  • Lost income when you can’t immediately return to work after your bicycle accident
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering, which includes depression, physical pain and discomfort, anxiety, disfigurement, and similar losses

Each accident is unique, but we know how to accurately calculate the value of your claim. And then we get to work convincing the defendant’s insurer to offer a fair settlement to cover your losses.

We’ve Got Your Back

Perhaps the worst feeling after a collision is that no one is looking out for you. Insurance adjusters never return your calls and creditors are unsympathetic that you are in too much pain to work. Pursley Law Firm is proud to help anyone hurt in a bicycle crash. We will do everything in our power to obtain a meaningful settlement. Call us today to schedule a consultation with our Carlsbad bicycle accident lawyer.
