Los Angeles Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Bicycle accidents are becoming more common today, due to heavy traffic and distracted drivers. According to the Center For Disease Control or CDC, more than 400,000 people visit the emergency room every year for injuries related to bicycle accidents. Below is an overview of personal injury law and how it may help you obtain a settlement for your injuries. If you were hurt in a Los Angeles bicycle accident, contact a personal injury attorney for advice.

Types Of Injuries

Bicycle accidents can produce a wide variety of injuries that can range from mild to debilitating. Some of the most common bicycle accident injuries are:

  • Head Injuries

Head injuries often lead to brain damage, especially if the bicyclist is not wearing a helmet. However, bicyclists who are hit at a high rate of speed can sustain brain injuries even while wearing a helmet.

  • Broken Bones

Bicycle accidents often lead to broken arms, legs, ankles, wrists and elbows. It is not uncommon for accident victims to suffer multiple broken bones after an accident. This often leads to months of recovery and rehabilitation.

  • Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis, which can change an accident victim’s life completely.

  • Facial Injuries

Falling from the height of a bicycle often leads to facial fractures, broken collarbones, and neck injuries. Many bicyclists suffer lacerations that often require stitches to close, as well.

Factors In Bicycle Injuries

The severity of injuries bicyclists receive depend on several factors such as:

  • The Speed The Vehicle Was Traveling At The Time Of Impact
  • The Type Of Impact That Occurred
  • Whether Or Not The Bicyclist Is Wearing A Helmet Or Other Protective Gear
  • The Condition Of The Road Where The Accident Occurred

Statute Of Limitations

Each state has a certain period of time in which you can file a lawsuit for a personal injury. In Los Angeles injured parties have 2 years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. Failing to file your case in court within that time frame will most likely result in your case being thrown out of court.

Proving Negligence

In most personal injury cases, you must prove you were injured due to the negligence of another person. This means that if you are hit while riding your bicycle, the driver must have been reckless or acting unreasonably. Some examples of negligent behavior are driving under the influence, ignoring traffic signals and speeding.

Damages

You may be able to obtain a settlement for damages after a bicycle accident by filing a lawsuit. Some things you may be compensated for are:

  • Ambulance Transport Fees
  • Hospital Bills
  • Doctor Visits
  • Cost Of Medical Devices Such As Crutches Or Wheelchairs
  • Lost Income
  • Pain And Suffering
  • Emotional Distress

If you are disabled due to the accident, you may also be able to obtain compensation for future lost wages. This type of settlement is designed to replace income you would have been able to make over the course of your career if you had not been disabled from the accident. Because it is important to calculate your expenses and lost wages correctly, it is essential to have an experienced attorney handle your case.

What A personal injury lawyer Can Do For You

If you have been hurt due to another person’s negligence, it may benefit you to speak with an attorney for advice. Choosing an experienced personal injury attorney can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. An attorney can help you by:

  • Obtaining Police Reports
  • Speaking With Medical Experts
  • Negotiating With The At Fault Party’s Insurance Company
  • Hiring Investigators To Help Prove Your Case
  • Calculating Lost Wages And Expenses
  • Filing Court Documents
  • Representing You At Trial

Insurance companies typically offer the lowest settlements to injured people who are not represented by a lawyer. They know you may have lost time from work and have mounting medical bills, all of which may make it tempting to agree to a settlement quickly. However, you may be able to receive a higher settlement by hiring an attorney. You can count on the insurance company having experienced representation during the course of your case. It is important for you to have quality representation from experienced bicycle accident lawyers, as well.

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident in Los Angeles, contact a personal injury lawyer for advice. During a consultation, your lawyer will review the facts surrounding your case and let you know if you have a valid claim and should move forward with a lawsuit. Having an experienced bicycle accident lawyer on your side is a good way to reduce the stress and uncertainty that are a part of every personal injury case. That way you can concentrate on healing from your injuries and moving on with your life. A fair settlement for your injuries may also give you the financial resources you need to move ahead, as well. Personal injury cases can be confusing and difficult to navigate, but having an experienced personal injury lawyer can help make the entire process much easier to deal with.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
