Protect Your Rights After a Bicycle Accident
Bicyclists have few protections against physical harm after an accident. You may face a long road of recovery and can’t work until you feel better. This can create a huge financial burden on you, but you may not have to pay it.
The at-fault driver’s insurance should pay for your accident, but they will try to fight back against your claim. You need a bicycle accident lawyer in California who can protect your rights and level the playing field between you and the insurers.
You can focus on your recovery and let your lawyer handle the negotiations, legal filings, investigation of your damages, and more. Don’t let an insurance company lowball your settlement or deny your case. Get help by calling Triumph Law today.
How We Will Help You With Your Claim
When you hire a lawyer, you gain an advocate who knows California laws and how to pursue insurance claims and lawsuits for your benefit. Some ways we’ll help you include:
Our attorneys will inspect the accident scene, talk with witnesses, gather official records of the accident, review video footage, and get all evidence to prove what happened and why you weren’t at fault.
Your case is worth more than what the insurance company will offer you in nearly all cases. We will account for all the damages you’re owed so we can fight for the full value of your claim, including non-economic damages.
Insurance Company Negotiation
An insurance adjuster may sound friendly and helpful but don’t be fooled. They represent the defendant, and they’re looking for ways to lower your settlement. Once you have a lawyer, they’ll handle all communication and negotiation with the insurers for you.
If the insurers cannot come to a fair settlement with you, then Triumph Law is prepared to take your case to court and fight for justice there. We will present your case to the judge and jury and do our utmost to persuade them you should win maximum compensation.

What Damages Can I Collect in a Bicycle Accident Claim?
Damages are the harm you’ve suffered because of an accident. Some common damages in bicycle accident claims include:
You can claim all reasonable and necessary medical costs related to your accident in your case. This includes emergency care, hospitalization, rehabilitation, medications, mental health care, and more.
Your injury may prevent you from working for a living. You can get reimbursed for the income you lost during your recovery, including commissions and bonuses. If you cannot return to work after your accident, we can pursue disability and lost potential income damages.
Your bicycle, helmet, and other belongings were probably damaged during the crash. You can get money for their repair or replacement.
Pain and Suffering
There are also non-financial damages you can claim, like pain and suffering. There is no set way to determine the value of these. They must be negotiated between the insurer and your lawyer to arrive at a fair amount.
When you hire our California bicycle accident lawyers, you’ll have a shield between you and the insurers. We know how to protect your legal rights and maximize the value of your claim. Our attorneys will fight tirelessly to help you triumph over the opposing claims of the insurers.

What Happens If I Wasn’t Wearing a Helmet?
California doesn’t require people over the age of 18 to wear a helmet while riding a bicycle, but it’s a good idea. Helmets can protect you from a serious head injury, but they can also protect you from claims that you contributed to your injuries.
California’s laws let courts split responsibility for an accident between several parties, and that includes plaintiffs and defendants. This will affect how much you can get from your accident claim. California uses a rule called pure comparative negligence to decide the division.
Under this rule, you can collect damages as long as you are not 100% responsible for an accident. However, each percentage of fault you have will reduce your compensation for that much. It also means that you could be mostly responsible for your crash but still get some compensation, so do not give up your right to a claim before speaking with a bicycle attorney first.

How Much Will My Case Be Worth?
It is impossible to calculate how much a case is worth accurately until we see the evidence, but we may give you an estimate based on serious cases. Here are just some of the things that change the value of a case:
- Your injuries, their severity, and how expensive they are to treat
- How much money you make from your job
- The cost of your bike and any other damaged property
- The willingness of the insurer to negotiate a fair settlement
- How badly the accident has affected you non-economically
The insurers want to keep you from discovering the full value of your case by offering quick settlements. They may seem like a lot of money, but you won’t know for sure if it’s enough to make you whole until you speak with an experienced bicycle accident lawyer in California like the team at Triumph Law.
