At National Injury Help, our San Diego bicycle accident lawyers know the consistently mild and sunny weather here makes it an ideal location for year-round cycling. In addition, the city offers numerous scenic bike paths along its beaches, parks, and urban areas, providing beautiful views that enhance the riding experience.

Whether you are biking for fitness or environmental reasons, commuting to work, or just beach cruising, San Diego has invested in dedicated bike lanes, bike-sharing programs, and secure bike parking, making cycling safer and more convenient.

Unfortunately, no matter how safe the rider or the amount of money San Diego County invests in biking infrastructure, it is impossible to account for every negligent California driver who encounters bicyclists on our roads, between bike lanes and paths, or on their way to trails.

Our experience provides our clients the confidence to move forward with their claims, knowing they are in capable hands.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Bicycle Accidents, Injuries, and Fatalities in San Diego, California?

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, various parties can be liable for bicycle accidents in San Diego.

That may include, but is not limited to:

  • Motor Vehicle Drivers

If a driver’s negligence, such as speeding, distracted driving, failing to yield, or violating traffic laws, caused the accident, they can be held liable for the cyclist’s injuries and damages.

  • Pedestrians

If a pedestrian’s actions, such as jaywalking or suddenly stepping onto the bike path, caused the accident, they could be held liable for the resulting injuries.

  • Bicycle Manufacturers and Retailers

If a bicycle defect, such as faulty brakes or defective components, caused the accident, the bicycle manufacturer or retailer could be held liable under California’s product liability laws.

  • Property Owners

If the accident occurred due to a hazard on private property, such as an obstructed bike path or a dangerous condition that the property owner should have addressed, the property owner could be held liable.

  • Other Cyclists

If another cyclist’s reckless or negligent behavior caused the accident, they could be liable for the injuries and damages.

Proving liability during a San Diego bicycle accident and injury claim independently is difficult due to the complex interplay of factors involved, including when the potentially at-fault party or their insurer is disputing your claim.

Gathering and analyzing evidence, such as witness testimonies, traffic camera footage, police reports, and accident scene reconstructions, requires meticulous effort.

Navigating these complexities necessitates legal experience and thorough investigative work to build a compelling case. That is what we provide.
