A bicycle accident can severely alter a person’s destiny due to physical and mental trauma, life-threatening injuries, financial ruin, job loss, and enormous legal bills. Recovering from your injuries and personal, financial, and career losses requires an attorney with specialized knowledge of the legal and medical issues involved.

Insurance companies are incentivized to settle claims as quickly as possible, for as little money as possible. You need a lawyer with deep experience in California injury law to receive fair compensation. If you were injured in a bicycle accident, contact an experienced bicycle accident lawyer before you contact an insurance company. Do not delay, as your legal rights may be affected.
Common causes of bicycle accidents include inadequate and poorly maintained roads, drunk and distracted driving, disobeying traffic laws and cycling product malfunction. Our experience at Williams Iagmin, LLP includes accidents caused by collisions with cars, speeding, texting and talking on the phone, bad road surfaces, internal car distractions like children and pets, running red lights and stop signs, bike equipment failure, road rage and hit-and-run.
Collisions with cars often result in serious injuries such as brain and spine injuries which can severely affect every aspect of a person’s life. Other common bicycle accident injuries include broken and fractured bones, injuries to the face and eyes, internal organ damage, lacerations and other injuries which can be lasting or permanent. Such injuries raise complicated legal issues which require sophisticated knowledge of both the law and the medical issues involved. Williams Iagmin LLP has the experience and expertise necessary to navigate these complex issues and achieve the best possible result.
If you were injured in a bicycle accident, the effects of the injury are not limited to medical expenses. You may also be eligible to recover for pain and suffering, physical therapy treatment, mental health treatment, mobility devices, lost or damaged property, lost enjoyment of life and other damages.
