Los Angeles Bicycle Accidents

We extend our thoughts and deepest condolences to the family of the deceased bicyclist.

According to statistics accumulated by the California Highway Patrol, there are over 2,000 injury incidents per year involving bicyclists and vehicles.  In many of those incidents, the bicyclist suffers serious or fatal injuries.

Determining fault in a bicycle accident case can be difficult.  Many times, the bicyclist and driver will have different versions of the events leading to the crash.  If there are witnesses, they may provide key information which helps the investigation.  Otherwise, an experienced accident reconstruction expert can help determine how the crash took place.

A Los Angeles bicycle accident attorney can help you re-create the scene of the crash.  If you or a loved one are in a California bicycle accident that was not your fault, you should contact an attorney right away. The insurance company has attorneys working for them and so should you.

At the Los Angeles Injury Group, our Los Angeles bicycle accident attorneys are not afraid to take on the tough cases.  To speak with one of our attorneys for free, call us at 310-954-7248 today.
