Bicycle Accident Attorneys in San Marcos

Serious Bike Accidents

San Marcos prides itself on being a bicycle-friendly community. With 300 days of sunshine and miles of bike lanes and trail paths, San Marcos residents are no stranger to hopping on their bike for fun, exercise, or just getting around. But, riding a bike can be dangerous and injuries suffered in a bike accident can be devastating. When riding a bike, you're sharing the streets with drivers who might be distracted, negligent, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Neglected or poorly maintained roads and bike trails can also lead to serious bike accidents.

If you or a loved one have suffered a bike accident, you need to speak with an experienced San Marcos personal injury attorney. Jurewitz Law Group has helped many Southern California residents injured in bike collisions pursue the financial compensation they need to heal and move on. You can reach us at (888) 233-5020.

Common Causes of Bike Accidents in San Marcos

Unfortunately, bicycle crashes are common on America's roads. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that over half a million people visit emergency rooms due to bicycle-related injuries annually. Bike accidents lead to almost one thousand fatalities each year in this country. Over 90 percent of fatal bicycle collisions are caused by accidents with motor vehicles. Here are the most common causes of bike vs. car collisions our San Marcos clients have reported over the years:

  • Drivers failing to maintain proper distance from a bike
  • Driver not seeing a bike
  • Drivers making turns in front of cyclists
  • Drivers running stop signs/red lights

Other Causes of Bicycle Collisions

  • Bikes side-swiped or rear-ended by motor vehicles
  • Driveway or parking lot accidents (usually caused by cars reversing without checking for on-coming bikes)
  • Road hazard/trail hazard accidents (usually caused by poorly maintained roads or trails)
  • Bike defect accidents

Statute of Limitations for Accident Claims in San Marcos

Under California Code of Civil Procedure 335.1, there is a two year window of time to file a personal injury claim. This means you have exactly two years from the date of your bike accident to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party. However, if your claim is against a governmental entity like a city or county charged with maintaining roads and public bike trails, your claim must be filed within six months of the date of your injury.
