Berkeley Bicycle Accident Attorney

Riding a bike is a fun way to keep fit and a cost-effective, environmentally friendly form of transportation. While Berkeley has made strides in accommodating the growing numbers of cyclists, the fact is that collisions with motor vehicles continue to put riders in jeopardy. At the Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C., our Berkeley bicycle accident attorneys represent people who have been injured in these types of cases. We provide the professional, experienced legal representation needed to hold reckless drivers accountable, so you can get the compensation needed to recover.

Defending You Against Bike Accidents and Injuries

Berkeley has made strong efforts to improve the safety of city streets for cyclists, but unfortunately, accidents and injuries still occur frequently. Even during the COVID-19 lockdowns, as many drivers were forced to stay at home, a sharp increase in bicycle sales resulted in more cyclists on the road and kept accident rates high.

Unlike passengers in a car, bike riders have little in the way to protect them in these accidents, and the injuries they suffer can end up being severe. At the Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C., we provide the trusted legal guidance you need to hold at-fault drivers accountable when you suffer the following types of serious bike injuries: 

  • Injuries to the soft tissue such as strains, sprains, and tears;
  • Severe cuts, lacerations, and burns
  • Broken bones
  • Dislocated joints
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Abdominal injuries, causing damage to bodily organs
  • Back and neck injuries, including whiplash and herniated discs
  • Head injuries, concussions, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Injuries to the spinal cord, which may result in paralysis

We Help Injured People Hold At-Fault Drivers Accountable

While there are steps you can take to protect yourself when riding a bike, such as wearing a helmet and reflective clothing, you cannot control the behaviors of others on the road. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reckless driving on the part of passing motorists is often responsible when bicycle injuries do occur. Our experienced Berkeley bicycle accident attorneys help you hold at-fault drivers accountable for negligent behavior such as the following: 

  • Speeding or going too fast for weather conditions
  • Disregarding traffic signs and signals
  • Aggressive driving, including tailgating and improper passing
  • Distracted driving, including using a cell phone or texting
  • Driving while tired or falling asleep while driving;
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.. 

When another driver is responsible for injuries you suffer in a bicycle accident, the Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C. can help you get the compensation you need to recover, either through an insurance claim or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in court.
