As one of the most popular states for bicyclists — California is routinely cited by the United States Census Bureau and other agencies as a leader in the number of people who use bicycles for commuting or recreation — bicycles are everywhere. Although there are thousands of miles of bike lanes and specific laws in place to protect bicyclists, those driving motor vehicles often fail to give cyclists the respect and attention they deserve. When this occurs, it can lead to a car-bicycle accident that may result in serious injuries or even death.
At NPN Law, we stand up for the rights of injured bicyclists and their families and pursue personal injury claims on their behalf. Our accomplished Oxnard bicycle accident attorneys — Jonathan, Kirt and Tanner — use proven litigation strategies to help you recover full compensation to pay your medical bills, make up for any wages lost due to your injuries, and help you return as closely as possible to the life you knew before the accident.
We draw on an extensive understanding of the law and statistics surrounding bicycle accidents to custom-tailor solutions that fit your specific situation. This includes knowledge of facts such as:
- More than 32,000 people in the United States are injured in bicycle accidents every year.
- California has the second highest number of bicyclist fatalities (approximately 110 annually), behind only Florida. There are roughly twice as many bicycle accident-related deaths in California than in the state with the third highest fatality rate (New York).
- As recently as 2011, more than 4 percent of all traffic-related deaths in California were caused by a bicycle accident. This is one of the highest per-accident rates in the nation.
