Santa Clarita Bicycle Accident Attorney

Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Los Angeles County Cyclists

Riding a bicycle—whether for exercise, sport, or just recreation—is both physically and emotionally rewarding. Knowing full well the dangers of riding, most bicyclists are very observant and cautious.

Unfortunately, however, bicycle accidents caused by a negligent motorist are a frequent occurrence. And unlike most car accident cases resulting in minor injuries, the bicyclist’s injuries are usually severe, catastrophic, or deadly.

Any person who has been involved in a bicycle accident or who has lost a loved one due to the negligence of another driver needs the services of an experienced California accident lawyer like Barry L. Edzant. Because it can be very difficult to prove fault in a bicycle accident, you need aggressive and professional representation to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve: repayment for medical bills, property damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Do not hesitate to call the Law Offices of Barry L. Edzant at 661-222-9929 if you or a loved one has suffered a bicycle accident in Santa Clarita or elsewhere in Los Angeles County. Our personal injury lawyer can help.

Seeking Fair Compensation for Your Injuries

Don’t make the mistake of assuming you don’t need legal representation after a bicycle accident. Insurance companies will always try to settle cases for as little as possible because they understand that you are often unprepared to handle your own claim. By offering you a small amount of money, the insurance company or their lawyers will try to get you to settle for much less compensation than you deserve and are entitled to.

What most accident victims discover the hard way is that the insurance companies won’t give them a fair offer until after they get legal representation from a well-seasoned attorney. Only at that point do the insurance companies know the victim means business, and they will then be forced to treat an injured victim with respect and fairness.

Trust Us to Negotiate on Your Behalf

Another common problem for bicycle accident victims who try to represent themselves is that they can end up hurting their own case. Insurance companies, or their lawyers, will take the victim’s statement after the accident when the victim may still be recovering from the incident and unable to give accurate information, and then use the victim’s errors and temporary confusion to build a case against him or her. They will also demand that documents be signed, which can ultimately hurt the case as well.

The Law Offices of Barry L. Edzant will never allow you to talk to the opposing insurance company or their lawyers alone. We can also prevent the insurance companies from taking advantage of your vulnerable condition.

Bicycle accident victims are not the only ones who can benefit from our services. People who have lost their loved ones in a bicycle accident may be able to file a wrongful death suit against the driver responsible for the incident. While winning the case will never bring back the spouse, child, sibling, or parent, the award will provide important compensation for the loss and will help the family pay for the costs related to the loss.

Do not hesitate to call the Law Offices of Barry L. Edzant at 661-222-9929 if you or a loved one has suffered a bicycle accident in Santa Clarita or elsewhere in Los Angeles County. Our personal injury lawyer can help.
