Bicycle collisions in the Bay Area are growing rapidly. If you have been in a collision with a car, pedestrian or another bike, you may be entitled to compensation. Victims of bike collisions often suffer serious injuries. Compared to a victim of a car accident, a bicycle rider does not have the same type of built in protection, such as a seat belt or an airbag.
The amount of compensation available depends on the severity of your injuries, the expected length of your recovery, and the actions of the other party. It is important to note that bicycle collisions do not need to occur on a public roadway to be able to obtain compensation. Bike collisions can occur in a park, at the home of a friend, or on the sidewalk. You should also be aware that insurance companies are known to dispute the amount of damages in a bicycle collision case.
Moreover, a bicycle collision case is a type of personal injury lawsuit, and therefore it must be brought within the California Statute of Limitation requirements. Currently, the Statute of Limitations for a personal injury is two years from the time the victim has knowledge of the injury.
