Palm Springs Bicycle Accident Attorney

Motor Vehicle vs. Bicycle Accident Claims

All too often, people are under the assumption that bicyclists are daredevils and that they should not be allowed to share the road with motor vehicles. However, the reality is that the majority of bicyclists are not rebels - they are just people who are partaking in a cherished pastime, a convenient method of transportation and an intense workout. When you are involved in an accident, it is essential that you hire an experienced Palm Springs bicycle accident lawyer to fight for your legal rights.

Over the years, many laws have changed in the state of California to protect both bike riders and drivers. Yet, despite these law changes, countless bicycle accidents occur in areas like Palm Springs each year. While many people may think that bicycle accidents stem from cyclists acting like renegades, the truth is that in most cases, bicycle accidents are caused by reckless drivers who are either inattentive or who ignored the rules of the road.

What to do After a Bicycle Accident

After people have been involved in a bicycle accident, the first thing they should do is get checked out by a doctor. Sometimes, injuries are not obvious, which is why it is always a wise idea to have a physical exam from a medical professional.

Once people have been treated, they may wonder if they have the right to file a lawsuit. This is especially true in cases where bicyclists incurred substantial medical bills and property damage to their bikes and riding gear. The best way for people to learn more about their legal options, individual rights and the personal injury claim process is by consulting with a Palm Springs car accident attorney.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need.

    “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.”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “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.”

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “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!”

  • They made me feel comfortable.

    “I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. The firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise.”
