Are there Any Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Los Angeles?
Yes, of course. I was unable to find any attorneys that are
only bicycle accident lawyers in Los Angeles, but there are a lot of lawyers
that specialize in accidents in general and they can offer you all the help you
might need at the court.
Where can I find them?
As everybody else they can be found on the Internet. Type “bicycle accident
lawyers Los Angeles” phrase in your search engine and you're going to receive at
least 10 attorneys' sites. But before you choose, check their records and make
sure their bills won't be too high - it is easy to spend so much money on
lawyers that in the end you start to wonder why you have sued somebody in the
What are my rights after a bicycle accident?
Under California law you have substantial rights if only you had a bicycle
accident. “Lawyers Los Angeles” website (www.losangeles-lawyers.com
http://www.losangeles-lawyers.com) can provide you all information you might
need. You have rights to compensation of medical expenses, lost income, property
damage, pain and suffering, future medical expenses, loss of future enjoyment of
life, scaring and disability. As you see there are quite a lot rights and they
are limited by one thing only - the California law sets strict time limits of
taking actions. In some cases you can have only a few months. Of course if only
you keep to these limits, there is a good chance of winning a few dollars and
all bicycle accident lawyers in Los Angeles will be more than eager to help you.
Where's the catch?
It's simple - if you request the help of lawyers you have to be prepared to
spend some time and money on them. A typical bicycle accident lawyer in Los
Angeles will take at least about 30 per cent of money you will win (plus
expenses), so in some cases it is simply not cost-effective. Of course if the
accident was a serious one and you have a chance to gain more than a few hundred
dollars, there can be something to fight for. Just don't let the lawyers take
control of the situation - and check the bills they send you.
