REPRESENTING CYCLIST ACCIDENT VICTIMS IN THE BAY AREA

Bicycling is a wonderful form of transportation and exercise, and often a preferred way to get around the Bay Area and enjoy the beautiful scenery as well as avoid some of the nasty freeway congestion in the area. Fortunately, there are numerous laws in place to protect cyclists in the state of California. However, despite such protections, injuries still occur.

Today, one of the most serious issues that threaten cyclists is distracted drivers. Whether it is due to texting or not checking a blind spot, whether it is opening a car door without looking in the mirror, a bicyclist is put in danger when a driver loses focus or fails to consider others who share the road. And, because bicyclists have little protection, they are often prone to serious and catastrophic injuries.

WHY WORK WITH US?

At The Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C., we have helped many bicyclists recover for injuries sustained because of a distracted driver. Unlike other firms, we only represent plaintiffs and we take charge to aggressively protect their rights. We have years of experience handling bicycle accidents caused by:

  • Driver negligence
  • Trucks turning right across a bike lane into cyclists
  • A cyclist being ‘doored’ by a driver who opened their door in traffic
  • Municipalities failing to provide a safe riding space for bicycles

Our attorneys have many years of experience with a proven track record of recovering millions of dollars for injury victims. Our founding attorney, Scott Righthand, has personally achieved recognition in the community:

  • Named in The Best Lawyers in America from 2009 to 2020
  • Holds a 10.0 Superb Avvo rating
  • Received an AV Rating* from Martindale-Hubbell
  • Included in the Northern California Super Lawyers list from 2009-2019 
  • Named to American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA)

DON’T SETTLE WITH AN INSURANCE COMPANY WITHOUT AN ADVOCATE ON YOUR SIDE

Following an accident, you should never have to face the insurance companies or legal system alone. Often failing to act, thinking that insurance companies are your friend, attempting to negotiate your own case resolution can be fatal to what may have been a very valuable case. When you work with our attorneys, we will protect your rights and actively pursue maximum, favorable compensation for your case.

We believe that you should be focusing on getting better, which is why we take the initiative and lead in handling the legalities of your situation.
