Ventura Bicycle Accident Attorney
Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties offer some of the most scenic locations to ride a bike or enjoy a coastal walk. According to California law, drivers must share the road with all motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Unfortunately, drivers tend to forget that pedestrians and cyclists have the right-of-way and put innocent people at risk of serious injury or wrongful death.
To make matters worse, many drivers are distracted while behind the wheel. Despite laws and statutes that prohibit texting while driving, many motorists still text, email, or talk on their handheld devices. Taking one’s eyes off of the road for just a split second can result in tragic, devastating, or fatal accidents. Victims of such negligence deserve to be properly compensated.

Types of Bicycle & Pedestrian Accident Injuries
Unlike motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians have little to no protection to ensure their physical safety. The damages resulting from an accident can be severe or fatal.
Injuries from Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents Can Include:
- Catastrophic injuries
- Broken bones, lacerations, dislocated limbs
- Loss of limb due to necessary amputation
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Bruises, contusions, or internal bleeding
- Soft tissue damage
Unfortunately, anytime a car collides with a bicyclist or pedestrian, the person on the bike or on foot is hurt most. If you were injured as a result of someone else’s careless or reckless actions, you should fight to receive compensation with the help of a lawyer.
