Whittier Bicycle Accident Attorney

Every Bicyclist Counts

The California Vehicle Code states that anyone riding a bicycle on a major road has all the rights and is subject to all the provisions applicable to the driver of a regular motor vehicle. Unfortunately, not all the drivers on the road are aware of this, or even necessarily concerned with your rights and safety. Following mandatory helmet laws and using safety equipment such as lights, flashers, and proper clothing can reduce your chances of a bike crash, but you must rely on others to take your safety just as seriously. Unfortunately, that does not always happen.

The most common bicycle accidents include:

  • Left-hand turns in front of unseen or ignored bicyclists
  • Open door collisions
  • Merging and lane changes
  • Intersection collisions
  • Motorists passing cyclists without enough distance

And it’s not just other vehicles that cyclists need to be wary of. Unsafe roadway conditions, such as potholes, construction debris, and projecting objects, can often lead to crashes or the need to “take the lane” by riding in the center of the lane and risking possible additional dangers.

Cyclists Are Exceptionally Vulnerable to Other Vehicles

At Law Offices of Steven Ibarra, we see significant injuries as a result of crashes involving bicycles. Some of the most common include concussions, fractures, and spinal injuries. Any or all of these types of trauma can require extensive trauma care, including orthopedic surgeries and CT scans, MRIs, and X-rays for diagnosis and treatment.

Our firm focused on your physical well being and in helping you receive vital treatment for a good quality of life—and, hopefully, a return to the cycling activity you enjoy. We are also steadfast in ensuring that you receive fair compensation for medical expenses, bike damages, and pain and suffering. Our knowledgeable and professional team will help you collect the necessary reports and information and expedite the legal process in an honest, straightforward manner. You deserve a voice that understands and advocates for you.
