Bike Accident Attorney in Ventura

Powerful Advocacy for Injury Victims

With the increasingly congested traffic that accumulates in Southern California, many people have taken to riding bicycles to commute to work or school. Not only does riding a bike provide excellent exercise and improve one’s health, but it also is helpful to the environment, especially in the smog-filled urban areas of California. The problem is, many automobile and truck drivers do not give cyclists the respect they deserve and carelessly crowd them or forget to check their blind spots. As a result, collisions involving bicycles have exponentially risen across the United States, many of them leading to horrific injuries and deaths.

When you have been involved in a similar traumatic event, do not hesitate to reach out to our bike accident lawyer in Ventura. When it comes to defending your case for your rightful compensation, Zavala Law, PC has the knowledge and skill necessary.

Causes of Typical Bicycle Collisions

In order to demonstrate that a driver was liable for causing your injury while you were cycling, it is important to show the kind of negligent behavior they were displaying. This way, we can establish that the driver was the primary one at fault, and that their irresponsibility directly caused your injury.

Some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents come from:

  • Reckless driving – When drivers do not pay close attention to traffic laws, or when they make mistakes due to speeding or refusing to signal, these reckless mistakes can lead to terrible accidents.
  • Distractions from mobile devices – Sending a single text is enough to distract a driver’s attention and lead to a tremendous accident.
  • Driving under the influence – When individuals consume alcohol or drugs, their ability to make quick key decisions is impaired, along with their ability to see or hear properly, which often causes fatal tragedies.

Receiving Financial Compensation for Bicycle Collisions

Although any kind of accident can cause tremendous suffering, bicycle accidents tend to result in more pain simply because bicycles are much smaller than automobiles, thus bearing the brunt of the damage. If you have been involved in this kind of accident, it is important to know that you can recover financial compensation not only for extreme injuries to the brain, spinal cord, or internal organs, but also for bone fractures and decreased motor control. Emotional trauma is also recognized as a compensable effect of a bicycle collision.

Here at Zavala Law, PC, we strongly believe that bicyclists have just as much of a right to feel safe and secure during their travel as any automobile driver. That is why our work is not only about helping people get compensation for the painful injuries they suffered. Those who are negligent and irresponsible need to be held accountable for their actions, so that fewer bicycle accidents will happen in the future.
