Aggressive Bike Accident Attorneys

The bicycle accident attorneys at Dordulian Law Group are well-versed in Los Angeles bicycle laws, and California bicycle laws in general. Our firm has successfully represented clients who have been in serious accidents which caused loss of income, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other negative impacts. Unfortunately, many people don’t even realize that they have legal recourse after being involved in a painful and traumatizing bike accident. They all-too-happily communicate with the other party’s insurance company, not realizing that they are forfeiting their rights and being taken advantage of in order for some insurance company to minimize their claim.

If you’ve been involved in a bike accident, you need to speak to a qualified bicycle injury lawyer like the ones at Dordulian Law as soon as possible. Your lawyer should be the one speaking to the insurance company — not you. Of course, there’s also the possibility that no insurance company is involved yet, because your accident may have been a result of road conditions or some other non-vehicle factor. In these cases too, it’s smart to seek legal counsel quickly to determine your options to seek compensation.

Nearly half a million bicycle injuries occur in the United States each year. And unfortunately, California ranks #1 in bicycle fatalities each year, as well. If you’re a family member of someone who was tragically killed as the result of a bicycle accident, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

About 35% of all fatal bike accidents involve a drunk or intoxicated driver; and that due to California’s temperate climate, people are often biking year-round here. Many commuters, fed up with LA freeway traffic, are also opting to pedal their way to work instead of driving. Finally, you’re probably well acquainted by now with how dangerously California drivers behave on the road. It all combines to foster an extremely unsafe situation for bicyclists, leading to the extremely unfortunate bicycle accident statistics owned by this state.

If you or a loved one are involved in a bicycle accident, things may seem overwhelming and disheartening. You may not be sure what to do, or where to turn. When in doubt, consider doing the following:

  • Contact Dordulian Law Group immediately to seek financial compensation and ensure that your legal rights are protected;
  • Do not admit fault under any circumstances;
  • Compile as much information as possible surrounding your accident: photograph injuries, save medical documents, take down all vehicle information (if applicable), and try to swap contact info with any witnesses that were at the scene
