Bicycling can be a cost-effective, eco-friendly way to get around Los Angeles, but the lack of protection makes you more vulnerable to serious injuries in the event of an accident.

How to Prove Fault in a Los Angeles Bicycle Accident

While it may seem clear whose negligence caused your bicycle accident and injuries, clearly demonstrating their liability can be challenging. Fortunately, our LA bicycle accident lawyers understand how to prove fault in these cases to help you achieve a fair settlement. As the victim filing a claim, you must fulfill the burden of proof by presenting evidence that proves the following points:

  • Duty of Care: The liable party owed you a duty to care for your safety.
  • Negligence: They breached this duty of care by acting negligently.
  • Causation: This negligence directly caused the accident and your injuries.
  • Damages: Your injuries resulted in damages.

When thoroughly investigating your claim, we consider every detail and gather important information to prove these points, including medical records, police reports, witness testimony, and traffic camera footage. Whether a driver, another bicyclist, a manufacturer, or a third party caused the crash, our attorneys have the skills, resources, and knowledge to hold them accountable.

What Types of Damages Can You Recover After a California Bicycle Accident?

The impact of bicycle accident injuries often goes beyond physical, affecting your mental health and causing financial worries. At Callahan & Blaine, we understand the stress your injuries can cause, so we work hard to build a strong claim and accurately calculate its value, which may include the following types of damages:

ECONOMIC

Economic damages include those with a monetary value, such as medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and property damages. To calculate these damages, we consider every detail and organize your paperwork, receipts, and invoices. This ensures your claim’s value covers your future economic damages as well.

NON-ECONOMIC

Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages do not have a monetary value. This includes pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, and reduced quality of life. These damages can be more challenging to determine, but with the help of our knowledgeable Los Angeles bicycle accident attorneys, you have the best chance of securing compensation for the emotional damages the liable party caused.

PUNITIVE

Punitive damages are awarded in cases where the at-fault party was grossly negligent, acted willfully, or had malicious intent. These damages serve as a punishment for the liable party that deters them from committing their actions in the future.
