Decades of Legal Representation for Injured Cyclists in Sacramento

A green car that hit a pink bicycleRoad biking is often used as a form of transportation or exercise, and mountain biking makes for great recreation. As the late president John F. Kennedy put it: “Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.”

But an increase in bicycle use means bicycle accidents can happen almost anywhere – roads and highways, parking lots, sidewalks, or private property. Nationwide, there are over 50,000 bicycle accidents each year and nearly 800 die from their injuries.

Because bicyclists are not shielded by thousands of pounds of metal and plastic like people in cars, bicycle accidents can cause devastating injuries. If you have been injured in a bicycle crash, from “road rash” to accidents resulting in catastrophic injury, our Sacramento bicycle accident attorneys can help.

Challenging Misconceptions About Bicyclists

Unfortunately, although bicyclists have the same right to be on the road as drivers of automobiles, they often get a bad rap, being unfairly blamed for bicycle accidents.

This is based on past prejudice where some cyclists have been seen riding on sidewalks, riding against traffic on the wrong side of the street, and rolling through stop signs or red lights. This prejudice and misconception can prevent cyclists from being treated fairly. As 19th Century author Louis Baudry D’ Saunier put it: “Cycling has encountered more enemies than any other exercise.”

Bicycle Accident Statistics in California

In California, Bicycle fatalities increased 8.6 percent from 129 in 2012 to 141 in 2013. The number of bicycle related injuries has risen from 11,993 in 2009 to 13,213 in 2013.

California Bicycle Laws You Should Know

Under section 21200 of the California Vehicle Code, when you are riding a bicycle you are considered a “vehicle” and are bound by all rules of the road found in the Vehicle Code. Surprisingly, the California vehicle code also regulates the “size” of bikes. They must be small enough for the rider to step off, support with one foot on the ground, then start safely. (Vehicle Code sec. 21201 (c).

In addition, if you are struck by another motor vehicle while riding your bike, and the responsible party has no auto insurance, you may still be able to have your medical bills paid under the “med pay” provision of your own automobile insurance policy.

  • The lawyers actually care!

    “The lawyers actually care, helping my daughter recover the insurance policy limits for her injuries involving a drunk driver.”

    Chris S.

  • I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly.

    “John Miller is a phenomenal attorney. Mr. Miller went above and beyond what most attorneys do. I had so many questions, concerns and he answered every one of them promptly and thoroughly. I unfortunately was involved in a serious car accident that left me with a lot of medical bills and a ton of stress. When John was assigned to my case he spend endless hours (of his own time) preparing for settlement and then trial. Mr. Miller is very articulate, knowledgeable, kind and dedicated to his clients. I hope to never need a personal injury attorney ever again but if the circumstances ever presented themselves I would want John Miller by my side.”
