Orange County Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Cyclists Representing Cyclists Throughout California for Over 35 Years

At Bike Legal, not all of our attorneys are cyclists and not all of our cyclists are attorneys—for a reason. Cycling is a tough sport, but it also brings us lots of joy. While not all of our attorneys are avid cyclists, many of them are. Most importantly, all of our attorneys understand cycling accident cases more than most other lawyers or law firms out there. Why? Because we solely focus our practice on these types of cases. This focus, along with our personal understanding of the cycling community, makes us some of the most effective advocates for injured cyclists around.

There is an old saying in the field of law: “The law is a jealous mistress.” At Bike Legal, we prefer to have our attorneys focused on practicing law, not on racing, PRing on Strava, or addicted to being on the road. That being said, we are incredibly well-versed in both the world of cycling and the field of law. Our Orange County bicycle accident attorneys work very hard to get the absolute best results for our clients who have been injured in cycling accidents. Our lawyers are true cycling attorneys, as they understand your needs and actually work on fulfilling them. As a client, you receive superior service and the results-driven representation you need and deserve.

We invite you to take the time to read more about our attorneys and learn who we are, what we do, and how we can fight for you in the wake of a bike accident.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries

Cyclists are far more exposed than motorists on the roadways, and as such, riders can suffer serious and even life-threatening injuries in the event of a collision. Even low-speed crashes can cause severe physical trauma, as a rider can be flung from their bicycle and potentially be hit by other oncoming vehicles. While the nature and extent of injuries will vary based on the speed of impact, if the cyclist was wearing a helmet or other protective gear, and the location of the crash, the effects are almost always worse for the cyclist than for the drivers and passengers of the other vehicles involved.

Some of the most common injuries suffered include:

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

While the causes of bicycle accidents can be as varied as their effects, many collisions are the direct result of driver negligence. From failing to look for bicyclists before changing lanes to driving while intoxicated, motorists often violate their duty of care to watch out for cyclists on the roadways, resulting in devastating accidents. Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents in Orange County include:

  • Failing to obey traffic laws
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Driving while drunk
  • Aggressive driving
  • Unsafe road conditions
