San Diego Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Holding Negligent Motorists Liable for Your Injuries
In a temperate state like California, bicycling happens all year round. Not only is it a healthier way for commuters to get around, but is also environmentally friendly and cost-effective. Unfortunately, on many of our busy streets, the risk of bicyclist injury is high. In dense urban areas like San Diego in particular, it is common for bicyclists to be hurt due to the irresponsible actions of a negligent motorist.

Our San Diego bicycle accident lawyers have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of injured clients and helped them and their loved ones move on from their accident with the relief they deserve.
How do motorists cause bicycle accidents?
Some people assume that because roads were built for automobiles that motorists deserve to be the number one priority on the road. This, however, is not the case. Drivers must be vigilant and safely operate alongside all other vehicles on the road, including bicycles. When this doesn't happen, bicyclists can be put in significant and even life-threatening danger.
Common ways motorists cause bicycle accidents include:
- Tailgating (following too closely)
- Failing to look before exiting a vehicle (door injuries)
- Failing to properly signal lane changes and turns
- Drifting into bicycle lanes and road shoulders
- Driving while impaired (alcohol, fatigue, etc.)
- Driving while distracted (texting, phone calls, etc.)
If any one of these factors contributed to your bicycle accident injury, then our office is ready to hear from you. Our skilled San Diego personal injury attorneys are prepared to assess the circumstances of your case and help you take the next steps towards the restitution you deserve.
