Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley, LLP is a Los Angeles law firm that represents injured bicyclists. Although cyclists take many safeguards while riding, accidents between automobiles and bicycles still occur.
Sometimes, drivers do not operate their vehicle with the level of care and attention as required of them. They may strike a bicyclist while changing lanes or cut in front of a bicyclist without allowing the bicyclist time to stop or change directions. Other times, drivers may strike a bicyclist who is riding in a bike path or even crossing the street in the crosswalk. We know that there is an inherent bias in law enforcement and in the public against bicycle riders; this bias may hinder investigations into these types of accidents. Our Los Angeles personal injury lawyers have experience handling such cases and are prepared to help.
Bicyclists struck by a car or truck can sustain devastating, permanent injuries. You should be aware that if another party is at fault, you have the legal right to recover compensation for your damages, including present and future medical bills, lost wages, and damages to the bike itself. If you were in the Los Angeles area and sustained injuries in a bicycle accident, contact our Los Angeles injury attorneys to help you now.
