Why Choose a Garden Grove Bicycle Accident Attorney?

The aftermath of a bicycle accident can be overwhelming. You may face serious injuries, medical bills, and lost wages. To ensure that your voice is heard, you need an attorney with the experience to navigate a personal injury case in Garden Grove. Our team can assist you in many ways and get you the help you deserve.

Investigating Your Accident

We can first conduct an intensive investigation into how your accident happened. This investigation can include:

  • Assessing crash reports and witness testimony. We can acquire and examine the police report to uncover the onsite observations, weather conditions, street signs, and other important matters to understand the scene. Additionally, witness statements can give firsthand accounts of your incident.
  • Traffic camera recordings. Some cameras can often capture video footage around busy intersections, and they may show how your accident occurred. We can request any existing footage to help establish fault and give undeniable visual evidence to bolster our case.
  • Professional opinions. Sometimes, we can seek assistance from professionals who dissect accident scenes, debris patterns, or testimonies to better understand what happened.
  • Understanding California bike laws. California laws address bicycle safety and the responsibilities that drivers must adhere to in the state. We can protect your rights by speaking up about rights violations. For instance, when a motorist fails to yield the right of way to you while you travel in a specified bike lane, they can be accountable for any injuries you incur. If they refuse to pay, they are denying your rights.

Finding Responsible Parties

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, there can be several possible liable parties for the injury. Some examples can include negligent motorists, defective bicycle part makers, or government entities.

Driver negligence is one of the most common causes of bicycle accidents. If a motorist fails to adhere to driving laws by going too fast, not yielding the right of way, driving under the influence, or making unsafe lane changes, they can cause a crash. These drivers can be liable for all damages.

If we discover that faulty bike parts, such as defective brakes or tires, caused your accident, we can hold the part manufacturer responsible for your injuries.

Some exceptional cases involve aspects like inadequate road maintenance or poorly designed intersections. In these situations, a government entity, such as the city or state, can be liable for your accident.

Calculating Your Damages

Our bike injury law firm can engage financial professionals to evaluate all the damages you suffer. These damages can include:

  • Medical expenses. These bills encompass any cost incurred through previous and current treatments for your injury.
  • Lost wages. These wages would otherwise be earned during working periods, were you not injured.
  • Pain and suffering. This element refers to compensation given for pain felt after the accident. It can be physical and/or emotional.
  • Property damage. Destruction of your bike or other related objects should warrant compensation from the party that is liable for your accident.
  • Loss of earning capacity. If you cannot work anymore due to your injuries, we can calculate the future earning potential that you will miss out on.

Litigation When Necessary

Our team is ready for trial if we do not reach a fair bicycle settlement through negotiation. Our trial attorneys have extensive experience in bicycle accident cases and can fight tirelessly on your behalf throughout the legal process.


Q: Who Is Usually at Fault If a Bicycle Is Involved in an Accident?

A: The driver of a vehicle is usually at fault if a bicycle is involved in an accident. In these cases, the bicyclist can seek compensation when the driver acted negligently, recklessly, or intentionally in causing the victim’s injuries. The courts often presume that motorists are at fault because bicyclists can be the most vulnerable and possibly have the right-of-way.

There are circumstances where the cyclist can be at fault but, due to California’s comparative negligence laws, both parties typically would share fault.

Q: Can I Claim If I Get Knocked Off My Bike?

A: If you were knocked off your bike by a motorist, depending on the severity of your injuries, you can try to claim compensation for damages like:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning ability
  • Property damage
  • Cost of repair or replacement of damaged property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Gathering as much evidence as possible, including photographs of the incident scene, injury documentation, or pain journals, can strengthen your bicycle accident claim.

Q: What Happens If I Get Hit on My Bike?

A: If you get hit while on your bike and sustain injuries, try to remain calm until medical assistance arrives. If possible, move yourself to a safe location to wait for help. If you cannot move, do not try to do more than you can, as you may increase the severity of your injuries.

In less severe situations, you may be able to function normally. Move yourself to a safe location, get the information of everyone involved, ensure that the case is documented by law enforcement, and seek medical attention.

Q: What Should You Do If You Have a Cut From a Bike Accident?

A: If you have a cut from a bike accident, you should seek medical attention. This step can not only help you recover, but it can help gather evidence if you want to file a claim. The medical center will document your injuries, give you a bill, and provide any time estimates if you need time away from work to rest and recover. After an accident, you should always seek medical attention instead of trying to fix ailments yourself.

Ashlee A.

Retaining Easton and Easton was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! From the initial consultation to our final meeting, they were nothing short of exceptional. I was forced to retain their services after firing my previous attorney for not handling the case properly. I dealt with Gabriel and Brian (partner) exclusively throughout the case. They did as promised and were great communicators throughout the entire process. I will recommend them to anyone I know going through a personal injury case. They were ultimately able to untangle the mess caused by my previous lawyer and get a result that I was extremely happy with. Their staff is exceptional as well and provided top notch customer service. Amera was also extremely helpful and easy to deal with as well.

Jeffrey N.

I was in a pretty bad car accident and decided to have Easton & Easton represent me, Travis Easton to be specific. Travis Easton and his paralegal made the whole process effortless.

If you are ever in need of a personal defense attorney Easton & Easton is the firm to represent you!
