It doesn’t matter if you’re commuting to work or enjoying the beauty that this area offers: riding a bicycle is an activity that benefits you and the people around you. Unfortunately, the freedom that one enjoys while riding in the open air also holds risks. In a collision with a larger vehicle, or a crash caused by road conditions, cyclists have little protection. When a cyclist is hurt due to someone else’s carelessness, my firm, Brian K. O’Connor & Associates in Santa Barbara, pursues full compensation for medical costs, lost wages and other damages stemming from the accident. I have more than 30 years of trial experience as both a prosecutor and a private-practice attorney and understand how to win in court and at the negotiation table. I’m also an avid cyclist and sponsor of the Santa Ynez Valley Cycling Club & Team and the Santa Barbara Triathlon Club, so I know firsthand the dangers that cyclists face. No matter how you were injured while biking, my firm can give you comprehensive legal advice regarding a potential claim.
Fatal collisions between bicycles and cars have been rising across the nation. In California alone, there are more than 100 deadly cycling accidents each year and thousands more collisions where a significant injury occurred. In a free initial consultation, I’ll explain the elements necessary to bring a personal injury or wrongful death claim for a cycling accident. My firm can prepare a powerful case in lawsuits arising from all types of causes, including:
Many laws have been enacted to protect cyclists, but even after accidents occur, most drivers are not even given a ticket. I’ll enforce your legal rights and pursue complete reimbursement for your harm.
