Huntington Beach Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Bicycle accidents often present legal challenges because they tend to be hit-and-run accidents. Sometimes a bicyclist is forced off the road — but offending drivers of cars or trucks leave the scenes of accidents without actually colliding with the bicycles, and perhaps without even being aware that they have caused bicycle accidents. Uninsured and underinsured motorists may be involved. Public entities such as municipal, county or state government bodies may be liable if poor conditions in road construction zones are determined to be a factor.

A bicycle accident victim tends to suffer serious to catastrophic injuries because of the lack of protection that an occupant of a car or truck has in the same collision. A bicyclist who goes flying upon impact with a car or truck often suffers a brain injury and/or serious back or neck injuries.

The Huntington Beach area attracts bicyclists and other wheel-propelled people of all varieties, including the following:

  • Recreational rollerbladers, bicyclists and skateboarders on the beach boardwalk
  • Bicycling tourists — sometimes riding rental bicycles
  • Student bicyclists on nearby college campuses such as UC Irvine, UC Fullerton and Chapman University who use their bicycles to get from class to class
  • Children at play on bicycles and tricycles
