Orange County Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Have you been injured by a reckless driver?

Although bicycles are a popular form of transportation, bicyclists can suffer serious injuries due to the limited protection that they offer. Drivers who are negligent or refuse to acknowledge a bicyclist's legal right of way can cause devastating accidents. If you have been hurt while riding your bike, the Orange County injury attorneys at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. can help you fight for the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses, lost earnings, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Our firm has helped countless clients recover damages from the people who have injured them. You can trust in a legal team that has recovered more than $50 million in compensation for its clients. Not only are we available to clients around the clock, but we will even review your personal injury case for free. Furthermore, we have a proven track record of success in bicycle and pedestrian accident cases.

Some of the notable cases we have handled include:

  • $2,000,000.00 settlement – bicyclist was hit by a passing truck

  • $100,000.00 settlement – pedestrian was hit in a parking lot

Common Causes of Bicyclist Accidents

There are many dangers for a bicyclist when they take the road with distracted or negligent drivers. While there are a number of different factors that could contribute to an accident, statistics show that accidents between bicyclists and motor vehicles are by far the most common. In fact, only 16% of all reported bicycle accidents do not involve a collision with a motor vehicle.

Some of the leading causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Left-hand turns made by drivers without checking surroundings
  • Drivers who swing open a traffic-side door
  • Drivers who back up from a driveway or side street
  • Drivers who change lanes and do not notice bikes
  • Drivers who pass through intersections without looking

Seeking Full Compensation for Your Injuries

The damage that can be caused to a bicyclist can be traumatic and even fatal. These accidents often lead to hefty medical bills and time spent away from work, so it is every victim's right to seek fair and adequate compensation if their injuries were caused by someone else's negligent actions. Even if you do not have health insurance, our firm may be able to get you the medical treatment that you need.

Some of the most common types of injuries include:

  • Whiplash/neck injuries
  • Head trauma/brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Internal injuries/organ damage
  • Broken bones/fractures

You will need compensation to cover the costs of recovering from such injuries, in addition to reimbursement for the time that you were forced to spend away from work. Taking on the insurance company by yourself can be challenging and frustrating, but an Orange County injury lawyer can fight for the compensation you deserve and help you move forward with your life.

They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • From my personal experience, I can refer Cohn & Swartzion to anybody!

    “I was involved in an auto accident earlier this year. A friend of mine referred me to attorney Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon, a Professional Law Corporation. I met with Mr. Swartzon and his senior paralegal Linda Chapman to discuss my accident. We discussed the accident, the pain I was in and how my doctor was going to submit a request for physical therapy to my insurance company, which could take up to two weeks to obtain approval I was told. I informed Mr. Swartzon that I had previously had cervical surgery in 2012 and how it took almost a month to receive approval for physical therapy from my insurance company and make my first appointment with the physical therapist they approved me for. With the pain I suffered from the whiplash caused by the accident, I could not wait that long. Mr. Swartzon referred me to a physician that he knew so I could be evaluated and obtain written approval immediately for physical therapy. Mr. Swartzon also referred me to a physical therapy location near my work, which took me in immediately. During my treatments, I did not have to worry about anything. Linda Chapman handled all of the incoming bills that I received incurred by the accident as well as all of the correspondence from the insurance companies requesting updates. Their legal assistant Renee Bushman did a great job following up on the information requested by Linda about the other party to help with my case. I was always kept informed on the status of my case and always received quick responses to my emails. Due to the outstanding work that Saar, Linda and Renee had done, my case settled quickly and I am once again pain free. Now I know why my friend referred me to Saar Swartzon at Cohn & Swartzon and I can honestly say from my personal experience that I can refer them to anybody reading my review as well as anybody I know who is involved in an auto accident.”

  • They stayed true to their word

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

    V.O.

  • Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”
