Los Angeles has many unique and beautiful bike paths. The Marvin Braude Bike Trail hugs the shoreline for 22 miles and the Glendale Narrows provides some of the greenest, most scenic routes L.A. has to offer. Staying safe on these dedicated bike routes seems pretty easy. But the risks become more complex when bicycles and motor vehicles are required to share the road.

LA Bicycle Accident Statistics
According to California Highway Patrol, bicycle accidents in Los Angeles have risen by 90% since 2002. In fatal bicycle crashes, nearly 70% involve head injuries. The most effective way to avoid a head injury in the event of an accident is to wear a helmet. Alcohol is also a big factor. In accidents involving bicyclists, 37% are determined to involve alcohol consumption.
The highly congested traffic can lead to irritable motorists. Drivers often park in ways that obstruct dedicated bike lanes, with little regard for the dangers this poses to cyclists. Distracted drivers, of which there are many, don’t always see bicycles as they maneuver through traffic.
At Bergener Mirejovsky, our personal injury lawyers see the devastating effects of bicycle accidents on a regular basis. Our team is committed to making Los Angeles more bicycle-friendly by protecting the interests of cyclists involved in accidents and educating all members of our community how to safely share the road
How Can Bergener Mirejovsky Help Me?
Insurance companies are aware of the difficulties involved in tackling a bicycle accident claim by yourself. Their adjusters will try to take advantage of you and avoid giving you the settlement you deserve. Having an experienced attorney on your side helps make certain that insurance companies treat you fairly.
Too often, bicycle accidents are treated as standard personal injury. In California, bicycle plaintiffs lose two out of three cases that go to trial. Your chances of a successful case increase greatly when you retain a personal injury lawyer who understands the evolving legal framework regarding bicycle accidents in Los Angeles.
Bicycle accidents are not simple. Each incident comes with its own distinct circumstances and must be treated with great attention to detail. The bicycle attorneys at Bergener Mirejovsky have the experience, resources, and unwavering commitment to give your case the care it deserves.
