Palm Desert Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Bicycle Accident Statistics in Palm Desert

Palm Desert, located in Coachella Valley, has around 63 miles of existing bikeways and has plans to construct new paths in the future. The city also has various cycling trails, ranging in distance and elevation, for cyclists to ride.

Unfortunately, because many bike lanes are on city streets and shared with golf carts, cyclists might not always be seen by motorists and could be involved in accidents. Between 2010 and 2013, Palm Desert had 71 bicycle collisions. That’s an average of 17.8 accidents per year. During that 4-year period, all of the crashes resulted in injuries; none were fatalities. Palm Desert had the second-highest number of bicycle-involved accidents in the Coachella Valley. If you have been in a cycling accident in Palm Desert and someone else was at fault, call us today at 714-786-1789 or 866-749-0240.

The collision statistics for surrounding cities during the same period were as follows:

At Bike Legal, our primary focus is on standing up for cyclists and their families affected by accidents caused by other people or hazards on the roads. We have obtained favorable verdicts and settlements for past clients, and we will be dedicated to working toward a fair result in your case.

Common Bike Accident Injuries

Any bicycle-involved accident can be devastating and have a long-lasting impact on the cyclist, as well as their family. Injuries can result in physical pain, emotional anguish, and steep expenses. They can also make it difficult to carry out daily tasks, affecting the cyclist’s overall quality of life.

Cyclists involved in accidents suffer various types of injuries, including:

Amputation/loss of limb

Fractured/broken clavicle

Neck and back injuries

Soft tissue injuries

Spinal cord injuries

Traumatic brain injuries

After a bike collision, focusing on your health is top priority. Our Palm Desert personal injury lawyers will relieve some of the stresses associated with an accident by attending to every detail of your case to determine fault and file a claim against the responsible party, seeking a fair settlement for damages you suffered. Additionally, we provide services on a contingency fee basis, which means you won’t pay attorneys’ fees unless we recover compensation for you.

Focused on Protecting the Rights of Injured Cyclists

If you were harmed in a collision while riding your bike, you likely incurred unexpected expenses and losses that put a strain on your financial resources. If the accident was caused by someone else, these damages shouldn’t be your burden. You might have the right to pursue legal action and hold the liable party financially responsible for the harm you suffered.

Unfortunately, securing fair compensation isn’t always easy, as the process can be complex and insurance companies fight hard to protect their financial interests. At Bike Legal, we are committed to advocating for cyclists injured in accidents caused by someone else’s negligence or reckless actions. Backed by over 35 years of legal experience, we know what it takes to protect your rights and seek a just outcome on your behalf. Many of our attorneys are also avid cyclists, which means we will provide legal representation with compassion and empathy.
