Bicycle Accident Lawyers San Diego

California provides an excellent environment for cycling. That is why many residents use bicycles to commute to and from work, run errands, and just get around. But, in our busy state, bicyclists inevitably face the risk of being involved in accidents. Many motor vehicle drivers are still not used to sharing the road with bicyclists, and severe and even fatal injuries can result from accidents between bicycles and motor vehicles. While bicycle accidents can be caused by many different factors, most are due to the negligent actions of motor vehicle drivers.
Our bicycle accident lawyers San Diego have extensive experience helping severely injured bicycle riders. We also represent families whose loved ones were killed in bicycle accidents involving negligent drivers. Unfortunately, insurance companies are out to make a profit.
There are many reasons why the insurance company might try to pay you less than you deserve or get out of compensating you altogether. Our bicycle accident lawyers San Diego will not allow the insurance company to take advantage of you. Our team is ready to take your case to court and fight for your rights.
At Hayes Law, we believe in holding negligent motor vehicle drivers accountable for their negligence. To discuss your rights and how we can help you recover the compensation you deserve, do not hesitate to call our offices. We offer a free, no-obligation consultation.

We have fought for family members whose loved ones were killed in bike accidents. We represent clients in cases involving virtually any kind of bicycle accident, including;
  • Left-turn accidents: This is one of the most common types of bicycle accidents that bicycle accident lawyers San Diego come across. A left-turn accident happens when the cyclist and driver are approaching an intersection from different directions, and then the driver makes a left turn into the cyclist. In a left-turn accident, a bicyclist could run into the vehicle’s right side or be hit from the side.
  • Dooring accidents: This accident happens when a motorist opens their vehicle’s door into the path of a cyclist
  • Rear-end accidents: A rear-end accident happens when the front of a motor vehicle strikes the back of a bicycle. This accident may occur if a motorist tailgates a cyclist and traffic suddenly comes to a standstill.
  • Sideswipe accidents: Drivers are required to give cyclists enough space when passing. But some drivers fail to do so and try risky passes. These risky passes can result in sideswipe accidents.
