Sherman Oaks Bicycle Accident Attorney

Being injured in a bicycle accident can have a dramatic impact on your life. Unlike cars, bicycles do not offer such safety features as airbags and seatbelts, and do not offer any external protection.

If harmed in a collision on a bicycle, your odds of sustaining major injuries are high. You may not be able to afford the cost of necessary medical treatment for your injuries. Moreover, paying for medical care can be difficult if your injuries prevent you from returning to work and earning a wage during your recovery.

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident in Sherman Oaks, California, you may be able to recover financial compensation for your losses if it can be shown that your accident resulted from another party’s negligence. Review your case with a Sherman Oaks bicycle accident attorney at Mancini & Associates to learn more about your options.

How Bicycle Accidents Happen in Sherman Oaks

Negligent motorists are one of the most common causes of bicycle accidents, due to:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driving while drowsy
  • Driving while distracted, an increasingly significant contributing factor to motor vehicle accidents in the age of smartphones
  • Not paying attention to traffic signs or signals
  • Failing to yield the right-of-way
  • Not using their headlights when they should be

An accident can also be caused by a defective bicycle part. When this happens, the potentially liable parties would be the designers and/or manufacturers of the bicycle.

Local governments and/or agencies also have a responsibility to ensure bicyclists and motorists do not encounter hazardous road conditions that may cause accidents. If a government entity fails to address hazardous conditions in a timely manner, it may be liable  for a bicycle accident that occurs.
