Cyclists Representing Cyclists

Dealing with Insurance Companies after a Bike Crash in California

Put Our Experienced Orange County Bicycle Accident Attorneys on Your Side

When you are involved in a cycling accident, there are several different ways to receive compensation. Navigating the complexities of various insurance scenarios can be challenging, and that’s where we come in.

At Bike Legal, we make sure that your rights are protected and that the insurance companies involved treat you fairly. Insurance companies often use various techniques to reduce the value of a case, but having a true Orange County cycling injury attorney on your side can increase your odds of winning by more than 70% compared to those who represent themselves.

To learn more about how we can assist you with your bike injury claim, call (800) 449-4850 or submit an online contact form today. Your initial consultation is completely free.

Should You Hire an Attorney?

After a bike accident, especially an accident that results in seemingly minor injuries, many cyclists might think it’s too much work and too much hassle to take their case to an attorney. However, you may not realize the full impact of your injuries—even minor ones—immediately after the accident.

If you need medical treatment, the costs can quickly add up. You may even have to take time off work to receive medical attention and/or recover from your injuries. Your bike may require extensive (and costly) repairs and, when you do eventually get back on the road, you may find yourself struggling with after-effects, like anxiety and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

An experienced bike accident attorney, like those at Bike Legal, can help you pursue fair compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance provider. This compensation is meant to assist you with the cost of damages, which is a legal term for the physical, emotional, and financial consequences you have had to deal with as a result of the accident.

An attorney can help you pursue compensation for:

  • All medical expenses related to your injuries
  • Ongoing (future) medical treatment
  • Lost income/wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property (bike) damage repairs
  • Emotional distress

At Bike Legal, we understand the unique concerns of cyclists because many of our Orange County bicycle accident lawyers are also cyclists themselves. And, having represented cyclists in personal injury cases for over 35 years, we know how to negotiate with insurance companies and recover the largest amount of money our clients are owed. Our firm doesn’t just settle for any amount; when insurance companies offer lowball settlements, trial attorney Martin Jerisat is prepared to represent our clients’ best interests by taking their cases to court.
