Bicycle Accident Lawyers

We are bicycle accident lawyers. We have a statewide bicycle law practice representing bicyclists from Eureka to San Diego. Bicycle law and helping injured cyclists is very important to us.

We have been riding bikes all of our lives. Randal Cohen and Jeffrey Nadrich both ride bikes regularly and both rode their bikes while at University of California at Santa Barbara and University of California at Berkeley. We have never stopped riding our bikes and still ride regularly.

We are different from other personal injury law firms in that we are bicyclists first and personal injury lawyers second who represent bicyclists who are injured.

For this reason, we have at any one time over 75 to 100 bicycling clients. If you have been involved in a bicycle accident, you need a lawyer who knows everything possible about what rights you have as a bicyclist. As our website contains in detail, we know the rights and will let you know the rights of a cyclist on the road. Because of our reputation and success, we are brought in to handle bicycle cases throughout the country.

We handle bicycle injury cases, defective bicycle components, defective roadway conditions, and everything else related to bicycling including when the police wrongfully conclude that a cyclist is at fault for an accident. We will evaluate everything, hire experts, obtain photos, interview witnesses, and, go to the scene of the accident.

By hiring us, you will hire a lawyer who understands cycling, a cyclist’s rights and lawyers who know how to deal with the police and law enforcement when they wrongfully conclude that a cyclist was at fault in an accident.

We are members of the California Bicycle Coalition, a non-profit organization working to improve bicycle conditions for cyclists throughout California

A very large percent of our personal injury practice is exclusively limited to representing bicyclists injured in bicycling accidents. We are all avid cyclists and have logged thousands of miles cycling. Because we are well known in the California cycling community we have always represented a large number of injured cyclists. We are active members of many bicycle clubs, sponsored competitive riders, represented professional cyclists, and we are involved with local, state and national bike clubs. Sometimes we will peddle the route of our bike client's injury location or drive the route by car to get a better sense of how the accident happened. When necessary we do not hesitate to use bicycle experts to testify about road conditions, cycling/car speeds and other factors related to each accident. The biggest challenge we oftentimes have is overcoming prejudices about bicyclists. We have been very successful in dispelling the public's perception that bicyclists are somehow renegades on the highway and do not belong on the highway with autos. We do that by having our clients testify how long they have been bike riding, their occupation, history, family, charitable work, etc.

We handle bicycle cases throughout California and are convenient to all of our Californai clients since we have 20 locations from San Diego to Santa Rosa.

As cyclists ourselves, we are very sensitive to the claims of injured bicyclists. We know that our clients are not encased in 3,000 lb. steel cages with air bags and seat belts. Our clients are virtually unprotected while on their bicycles.

We know that oftentimes the cyclist is like a ghost out on the street. Motorists are staring right through us. As cyclist lawyers, we understand this and we are prepared to fight for our cyclist victims. We know what to do to present a successful case for the cyclist victim who has been hit by a car or truck.

Are you aware that it is common for bicyclists to get the short end of the stick from insurance companies? Recent studies show that settlements for injuries suffered in cars are up to 30% to 40% higher than for the same type of injuries suffered by cyclists.

In many cases, a bicycle accident results from a motorist's negligence or inattentiveness while operating his or her vehicle. The following are some common types of collisions that a cyclist may be injured in:

  • A motor vehicle driver turning directly in front of a bicyclist;
  • An automobile driver entering the street from a driveway or parking spot and pulls out into traffic in front of the bicyclist;
  • A motorist's failure to yield at an intersection or running a stop sign or red light;
  • A vehicle driver's inattention while driving past a bicyclist;
  • An automobile driver's failure to look both ways when resuming travel after stopping at a stop sign;
  • An automobile driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Our professionally trained staff members will do the following for our bike accident clients:

  • We will investigate and, where appropriate, closely analyze any damage that occurred to the bicycle, such as chipped paint, stressed metal, bent wheels and torn brake pads;
  • We will examine the remains of a bike wreck and seek to counter a motorist’s typical claims that a cyclist was speeding or squeezed the brake levers too hard or swerved into traffic.

Due to the increase in bike traffic throughout the United States and California, many cities have constructed special bike lanes. Parks now have trails which are accessible to bicycles, and some vehicle manufacturers are even offering bike racks as standard equipment. However, many motor vehicle drivers do not respect the bicyclists' rights to share the roads and, more importantly, many cyclists have not been properly educated on how to legally and safely share the roads with automobiles.

Negligent automobile drivers and uneducated bicyclists have resulted in some staggering statistics.

  • Every 6 hours a bicyclist is fatally injured;
  • Approximately one million children are injured each year in bicycle related accidents;
  • Nearly half of all bicycle fatalities occur to children under the age of 16;
  • Head injuries account for about 75% of all serious injuries and fatalities from bicycle accidents;
  • While collisions with cars account for only 1/3rd of all bicycle accidents, they account for the majority of catastrophic injuries and deaths.

Motor vehicle operators must be attentive to all bicycle riders. They must equate a bicycle with a motor vehicle and observe the same laws. For example: if you are sharing the right lane with a bicyclist and you are planning to turn right at an intersection, you must yield to the bicyclist. You may not drive in a designated bike lane unless you have immediate intentions to turn off the road. There are many "new" traffic laws concerning bicycles and ignorance of the laws will not protect you against negligence if you injure a bicyclist.

Under California law, bicycle riders are also subject to the same traffic laws as motorists. If you are riding a bicycle, you are also required to obey the traffic laws and you deserve the same protection by those laws as automobile drivers.

There are many other types of negligence, such as product liability, defective products and negligent manufacturing or assembly, which can also cause serious bicycle accidents and injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a Bicycle Accident, it is imperative that you immediately contact an Aggressive and Successful Personal Injury Law Firm such as Nadrich & Cohen, LLP to begin immediately protecting your rights.

The personal injury lawyers of the law offices of Nadrich & Cohen, LLP are extremely experienced and successful in obtaining compensation for bicycle accident victims. We have handled numerous lawsuits against negligent parties and have obtained tens of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
