Southern California Bike Accident Attorneys

Relentless Effort. Billion Dollar Results.

Every day our law firm meets people on some of the worst days of their lives. Either they have been struck by a vehicle and in debilitating pain or have a family member who’s suffered the same fate, or worse, death. Their medical bills are piling up, their income has disappeared, and their sliver of hope is slowly falling by the wayside.

At Owen, Patterson & Owen (OPO), we understand that along with legal counsel, you also need compassion. But above all, you need results you can depend on.

The Gomez family turned to OPO after their 4-year old daughter, Mireyli Gomez, was struck by the rear tire of an SUV. Mireyli was playing with her siblings outside of her apartment complex when an intoxicated driver backed into her, stopped, and proceeded to roll over the victim a second time. The accident resulted in a shattered pelvis and several other serious injuries, not to mention astronomical medical costs. Under OPO’s counsel, the Gomez family received $25 million, the second-largest personal judgment in Riverside County history.

With more than 40 years of experience handling pedestrian and bicycle accidents, OPO has a longstanding history of success. To date, we have filed, settled, or tried cases to jury verdicts in excess of $1 billion in compensation. If you or a loved has one been involved in an accident while walking or biking, our Southern California bike and pedestrian accident attorneys can help you get just compensation.

The Facts About Pedestrian Accidents

California has the highest incidences of pedestrian deaths in the country, taking the lives of nearly 7,500 pedestrians between 2014 and 2018. More than 14,000 people were injured in 2018 alone. In 2019, 344 people died in traffic crashes on California streets. More than half of those fatalities included individuals who were either walking or biking, reportedly increasing by more than 10 percent from 2018. Unlike traffic crashes involving vehicles where a car’s structure or seatbelt protects victims, pedestrians’ bodies take the full brunt of the collision’s impact, resulting in debilitating injuries and often death.

      The leading cause of bicycle and pedestrian accidents is driver negligence, including:

      • Speeding.
      • Distracted driving.
      • Failure to stop or yield at a crosswalk.
      • Backing-up accidents.
      • Poor weather conditions.
      • Intoxicated driving.

      Receiving compensation for physical and financial damages sustained in a bicycle and pedestrian accident injury claim requires you to establish liability, proving the other party’s negligent behavior contributed to the cause of the accident, either directly or indirectly. At  OPO, our biking and pedestrian accident attorneys will help you gather the necessary evidence to build your case.

      Why You Should Consult with a Bike and Pedestrian Accident Attorney

      Selecting an attorney for your bike accident is one of the most important decisions you can make in your case. Therefore, you must choose a bike accident attorney who puts your best interest at the forefront and has a proven track record of successful outcomes. Over the past four decades, OPO has handled hundreds of bike accident claims winning millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.

      We employ a personalized approach rather than a one-size-fits-all, which allows us to give your case the attention it deserves and ensures we meet your needs as a client. We strive to treat each client that walks through our door like they were one of our family members. During your initial meeting for your bike or pedestrian accident injury claim, an attorney will take notes as you share the details of your case. We will then evaluate your case and educate you on your rights and options and answer any questions you may have so you can make the best decision for your case.

      How an OPO Bike Accident Attorney Can Help You Get a Better Settlement

      Our experienced accident attorneys will handle all the legal aspects of your case while you focus on your recovery. This includes retrieving the necessary documents to solidify your case, identifying potential witnesses, obtaining statements, and negotiating with the insurance companies. When you’re unaware of your rights, insurance adjusters can easily manipulate you into agreeing to a smaller settlement. Our attorneys will tirelessly investigate your bike accident injury claim until you’re compensated to the full extent of your financial and quality of life damages.

      How a Bike Accident Attorney Can Help You Save on Medical Expenses

      While a large part of OPO’s efforts goes towards getting you sufficient compensation, we also work hard to make certain you have money left over after paying your medical bills. This can be a challenging feat given current healthcare costs. Secondly, there are some physicians and chiropractors who use your misfortune to their advantage and overcharge for treatments rendered, billing insurance companies the maximum amount allowed for their services. For smaller, more manageable fees, our bike and pedestrian accident attorney will not only provide medical referrals to affordable doctors and medical professionals within our network but also negotiate a lower hospital bill, if necessary.
