If you or a loved on has been injured in  bike accident you should call our office to get a case evaluation of your legal rights as soon as possible.  

We represent bicyclist from througout the valley fro injuries occuring while they are riding a bike.  Many bike accidents occur because car drivers do not give the bicyclist enough room.

All car drivers must share the road with bikes.  In 2014, California passed the "Three Feet for Safety" law Vehicle Code section 21760 which requires that a motorist passing a bike must provide a safety buffer of three feet between their vehicle and a bicycle wherever feasible.  In some situations, bicyclist are entitled to take the whole lane (where there is a hazard or obstruction that precludes them traveling on the righthand side of the road). For a violation taht does not result in injury, the law sets a base fine of $35 which becomes $233.00 for the court once court and administrative fees are added.  For a violation of that involves a collission that injures a bicyclist, the base fine is $220 whcih becomes $959 fine for the driver.  This penalty is equel to the lowest fine imposed for reckless driving with bodily injury.  

If you have been involved in an accident give us a call. 559 441-1418.
