Bicycle Accidents in San Mateo County
Contact San Mateo County bicycle accident lawyers if you or someone in your family has been hurt in a bike accident. Northern California’s climate and scenery makes bike riding a highly popular choice for fitness and even commuting, but our hilly terrain and winding roads put the bicyclist at even greater risk of serious injury if struck by an inattentive driver.
With or without a helmet, bike riders are fully exposed and helpless when a car or SUV collides with a bicycle. Even at low speeds, the impact can cause a bicyclist to be thrown a considerable distance over the handlebars or off to one side, resulting in serious head or brain injury, disablingneck or spinal cord injuries, or even death. Even the careless opening of a car door can result in serious trouble for a bike rider passing by at precisely the wrong moment.
Too few drivers anticipate the possibility of encountering a bicycle around a curve or corner, even in residential or recreational areas. If you or your child is a victim of a northern California bicycle injury accident, attorney Todd Emanuel can help you.
Working with skilled investigators and accident reconstruction experts, he can develop the facts of your personal injury case and identify all of the defendants who might be found liable for your damages. He’ll also work closely with your treating physicians and physical therapists, not only to prove the nature and extent of your injuries, but also to quantify the cost of your recovery. As necessary, Bay Area bicycle accident lawyer Todd Emanuel can also engage forensic medical experts to help support your claims, or more commonly, to refute the medical evidence presented by the defendants and their insurers.
