Bicycling is great – until a distracted driver bumps into you. Then, you’re facing serious injuries, jaw-dropping medical bills, and other inconveniences like not being able to work (or sleep). Let Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers | Injury & Accident Lawyers help you hold that negligent driver responsible.
San Diego provides an excellent environment for cycling, which is why so many residents use bicycles to run errands, commute to and from work, and just get around town. And while it’s a good thing that people choose to get fit and contribute to a better global environment, more bicycles on the roads means more potential for accidents. When a bike is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, the bicyclist has a higher likelihood of severe injury or death. Drivers of cars, trucks, and motorcycles have a duty to look out for cyclists and allow them their legal right-of-way while navigating San Diego’s busy roads and streets. Unfortunately, many drivers do not take this duty seriously.
If you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in a bicycle accident due to the negligence or reckless behavior of a motor vehicle driver, you have the right to compensation from them and their insurance company. But don’t expect the insurance company involved just to cut you a check. That’s not likely going to happen. Insurance companies are notorious for denying claims, delaying payouts, and trying to get plaintiffs to settle for far less compensation than they deserve.
Don’t let them do this to you. The legal team at San Diego’s Jurewitz Law Group Injury & Accident Lawyers | Injury & Accident Lawyers hate seeing injury victims get taken advantage of by insurance companies and have spent nearly 20 years fighting to ensure that it doesn’t happen.
