Bicycling is fun and a great way to stay fit and it is an environmentally friendly means of commuting. For a child, having a bike is a step towards independence.
California is an environmentally conscious state where many people enjoy outdoor activities, but sharing the roads with much larger cars comes with a risk.
Bicycle accidents sometimes lead to injury or death. In either event, you may need a bike accident attorney on your side.
When your accident was caused by another person, you must be able to prove that person was negligent and that was the cause of your accident.
We settled, I had a settlement with the city and the county, John and his team helped me all the way.
Elizabeth W. - Bicycle Accident Victim
“John is amazing. He works hard to make sure his clients get the money they deserve when it comes to settlements. After having bad luck with our previous attorney, John took over our case and helped us tremendously. He and his staff are very professional and friendly! I would recommend him to ANYONE needing legal help!”
"John, Brenda, Grant, and Audra worked together on my case. They are easy to work with and they care. Brenda was great about keeping in touch with me after my surgery. Because I was patient and allowed them to do their job, I received the best settlement possible. I don't write reviews often, but I had to share my experience. In our culture, most attorneys get a bad rap (I'm guilty of that)! If they cannot help you, they will tell you upfront. Besides, their consultation is free, so you have nothing to lose. If you want a great and caring experience, give them a call today."
"Mr. O'Brien and his staff are absolutely amazing! They took their time with me, they had all the patience, love, and compassion for me and my family. To have a firm represent me and convey my emotions in a professional manner is truly a blessing! Mr. O'Brien and his staff heard me, they listen to me and they helped me and my family. For that, I will be forever grateful! God sent me Angels wearing blue may he send you lots more clients that have just as much patience love understanding as you guys do. I wish you all nothing but the absolute best! Be blessed ALWAYS."
"John, Grant, and their entire team are incredible! We worked with them over the past few years and I never had an ounce of doubt that we choose the right team to represent us. They were professional, responsive, honest, and caring throughout the entire process. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts! I will recommend them to anyone in need of their services."
To prove negligence in the state of California, you must show the following:
Although this process may seem simple, it is hardly ever straightforward. Bike accident cases are often difficult and complex, in many cases requiring the use of expert witness testimony. Having an attorney help you through the process can help you receive the highest amount of damages possible for your case. An experienced personal injury lawyer not only knows the nuances of the law but also has the resources and connections to call upon experts, such as accident reconstructionists and traffic safety engineers, to help with investigating and proving liability and maximizing the likelihood of winning an adequate and fair settlement or jury verdict. Choose an attorney with years of experience and a practice limited exclusively to personal injury law, not a generalist.
Your ability to obtain the treatment you need and be compensated for all of your economic and intangible losses (quality of life damages) will often depend on the quality of legal representation you have. At the law firm of John M. O'Brien, our highly qualified Elk Grove-based bike accident lawyers will fight on your behalf to make sure that you will get the funds to go on living following a serious injury, and the peace of mind that you need and deserve.
Insurance companies will fight with every means available to make a plaintiff settle for the lowest possible amount of money. Insurance adjusters are skilled at posing questions to victims in such a way as to elicit a response that can hurt your case, so avoid talking to them. Sign nothing, and do not allow the adjuster to record a statement from you. Refer the adjuster to your attorney, who will take steps to protect your right to adequate recovery.
