Bicycle Accidents Can Be Devastating
Bicyclists are everywhere throughout Southern California. Unfortunately, we also know that the careless and negligent actions of vehicle drivers can lead to significant injuries for bicyclists. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, there were over 10,000 total bicycle accident injuries and 133 bicyclist fatalities during the latest reporting year in California. Many of those injuries occurred right here in our coverage area.
Even when a bicyclist is wearing a helmet, it is common for them to sustain significant injuries. At Licata & Yeremenko, our bicycle accident lawyers regularly help clients who have sustained the following injuries:
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or road rash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Open head injuries
- Spinal cord trauma with paralysis
- Other severe back or neck injury
- Internal organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Crush injuries
Preserving Evidence After A Bicycle Crash
It can be challenging to determine liability in the aftermath of a bicycle accident. It is crucial to preserve as much evidence as possible in order to prove what happened and who is at fault. At the scene of an accident, and only if safe to do so, those involved should take photographs of:
- Vehicle damage
- Bicycle damage
- Skid marks and/or debris
- Traffic and weather conditions
- Traffic signals or signs
Additionally, it is important to get the names and contact information of any eyewitnesses to the incident so they can provide testimony to insurance carriers or even a jury, if necessary.
We work diligently to help our clients receive proper medical care and just compensation for their physical and/or mental injuries.
