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

  • 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.”

    “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.”

  • We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible.

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”
