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
  • $850,000.00 settlement – family was hit while standing on the sidewalk
  • $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.

Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

  • I was very pleased with the firm's persistence

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided!

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”
