San Luis Obispo Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Bicycle Accident Cases in San Luis Obispo
There are few more dangerous situations than being hit by a car or other vehicle while riding a bicycle. The injuries sustained in these accidents are usually very severe, as the bike rider has very little protection, and even a bike helmet cannot protect them from possible severe brain damage. Sadly, children are frequently the victims in these injury cases as they use their bicycles for their main form of transportation and they are harder to observe. Adults also have suffered severe injuries, or lost their lives when hit by a speeding, drunk or inattentive driver. It is critical that you get qualified legal representation from a San Luis Obispo personal injury lawyer if you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident. The legal team at Pacific Attorney Group will immediately initiate the vital actions to protect your right to fair and full compensation.
Bicycle Accidents and Severe Injury
The injuries sustained in bicycle accidents are frequently very severe, and may be permanent. There is a high incidence of traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury as well as other very severe injuries. The injured victim may never recover, and the loss of abilities must be addressed at once by an attorney familiar with such cases.
As these accident often involve multiple impacts, as the bicycle rider is either thrown under the wheels of the vehicle and run over, or thrown onto the roadbed or onto the windshield of the negligent driver, the injuries are often fatal. In such cases, a wrongful death claim can be filed against the responsible person as the one form of justice we can provide. If the driver was drunk, and was guilty of criminal negligence, it may be possible in to seek compensation beyond the medical costs, rehabilitation, loss of income, and pain and suffering and demand punitive damages for our client. We are prepared to evaluate your case and advise you how we will proceed with the legal action on your behalf.
