Keeping California Roads Safe For Bicyclists
California law provides bicyclists with the same rights and duties as motor vehicle operators. Despite this, there is significant tension on the roads between those on two wheels and those on four. An enormous number of car vs. bike accidents occur in northern California, resulting in injuries and fatalities.
Located in Mill Valley, the North Bay Law Group helps injured cyclists and their loved ones enforce their right to compensation after a bike accident. If you have suffered due to a bicycle injury, we can help.
A Team You Can Trust To Fight For You
The North Bay Law Group has significant experience representing bicyclists who have been injured by negligent drivers.
We know the California Vehicle Code and local traffic laws well, and we thoroughly investigate every bike accident case we take on to understand exactly how it took place.
Often, bike accidents are caused by:
- Careless drivers failing to see cyclists
- Drivers opening their doors into the path of a bike
- Drivers speeding
- Drivers failing to give cyclists room
- Drivers failing to properly judge a cyclist’s speed or path
- Drunk driving
- Distracted drivers — whether they are illegally talking or texting on their cellphones or engaged in another distraction
While the causes can vary, most bicycle accidents have one thing in common: serious injuries. Even being doored — having a parked driver open a door in front of you — can result in permanent injuries for a cyclist.
We will learn what happened in your case, and we will seek justice and help you obtain compensation for your injuries, lost wages and other damages.
