Bicyclist Struck in Encinitas Car Accident | San Diego Bike Injury Lawyer

By Ross Jurewitz on September 26, 2011

40-year-old Todd Caulkin was struck and seriously injured in an Encinitas bicycle wreck that occurred on September 21‚ 2011‚ around 12:40 p.m. at the intersection of Encinitas Boulevard and Highway 101 (US-101).

According to Sheriff’s Sgt. Robin Lawrence‚ Caulkin was struck after he made a left turn in front of oncoming traffic on Encinitas Boulevard. The bicyclist suffered serious injuries and was immediately airlifted to a nearby hospital to receive medical treatment.

Based on the limited information provided in the news accounts‚ the cause of the accident is not clear. There appears to be right-of-way violation. It was also unclear how fast the vehicle was travelling and what made the motorist hit Caulkin. The investigation by the California Highway Patrol will hopefully provide answers as to what happened and who was responsible for this crash.

As for now‚ the injured bicyclist should immediately seek counsel from an experienced San Diego County bicycle accident lawyer who would educate him about his legal rights and options and assure that the at-fault motorist is brought to justice. Caulkin can file an Encinitas personal injury claim against the at-fault motorist to obtain a timely compensation to cover treatment‚ medical and hospital costs‚ loss of wages‚ loss of earning capacity‚ and other accident-related damages.

Our personal injury law office sincere hopes that the injuries suffered by Caulkin heal soon.
