How Do I Recover Compensation For My Bicycle Accident Injuries?

As with most other types of traffic accidents, insurance will be your primary source of compensation for any injuries and damages you’ve suffered in a bicycle crash.

Since California has fault-based insurance rules, you’ll have the right to seek benefits from the at-fault party’s insurance policy.

So, if a distracted driver struck you while you had the right of way and were passing through a San Diego intersection, you could file a claim against the driver’s insurance company. Benefits would be available up to the driver’s policy limits, which must be at least $5,000 in property damage benefits and $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident in bodily injury coverage.

If your bicycle accident injuries are severe, your damages might exceed available policy limits. In these situations, you can then seek additional compensation by suing a negligent motorist, vehicle manufacturer, government agency, or another liable party directly.

Don’t worry about how to get compensation - and from whom - after your San Diego bicycle accident. Singleton Schreiber will take care of your fight for damages. You focus on the rest.

What Damages Are Available to Injured Bicyclists in San Diego?

The primary goal of a bicycle accident lawsuit is to help you recover compensatory damages, which can help offset your financial losses (economic awards) and harder-to-value trauma (non-economic awards). 

Our bicycle accident attorneys in San Diego can help you seek compensation for your:

The defense will try to minimize your financial award by arguing that your injuries are minor and that your life hasn’t been turned upside-down because of the crash. Our law firm will not allow their tactics to dictate the future of your case. 

We’ll conduct a thorough investigation into your bike accident, gather key pieces of evidence, enlist expert witnesses to testify on your behalf, and build a claim that’s designed to not just get you compensation but to maximize your recovery.

How Can Shared Fault Affect My California Bicycle Accident Settlement?

While you may have the right to pursue damages after a San Diego bike accident, sharing responsibility for the crash can limit your financial recovery.

Under California’s pure comparative negligence law, your damages can be reduced if you’re assigned blame for your bicycle accident.

The more fault you share, the less money you’ll be able to get when your claim is resolved.

When you’ve trusted Singleton Schreiber with your case, you’ll be able to rest assured that our law firm will be fully prepared to fight back against any claims of contributory negligence that are made by the defense.

Are Bike Accidents Common in San Diego?

San Diego is one of the best places to bike in Southern California. City lawmakers have gone to great lengths to protect cyclists on its roads, too. The city has passed safety laws that require motorists to maintain a three foot buffer when passing a bike, mandate helmets for young riders, and establish bicycle infrastructure to keep riders safe.

Despite this, bicyclists are involved in hundreds of car accidents across the city. In fact, on average, nearly one bicycle accident is reported every day in San Diego.

In 2023, a total of 361 bicycle accidents were reported citywide, resulting in 375 injuries and 3 fatalities.

Improper turns, speeding, and drug and alcohol use were among the leading causes of these devastating wrecks.
