West Hollywood Bicycle Accident Lawyer

WeHo is a very bicycle friendly town. The West Hollywood Bicycle Coalition recognizes bicycle friendly businesses here, some of which include Target, West Hollywood Gateway, Irv’s Burgers, the City of West Hollywood, Whole Foods, and more.

The City of West Hollywood has gone through great lengths to keep the number of injuries in bike related accidents to a minimum. There are bicycle lands on Santa Monica Blvd and “share the road” signs up on Melrose Ave, Beverly Blvd, San Vicente Blvd and Fairfax Ave, and West Hollywood city code allows bicyclists to ride on the sidewalk if there is no bicycle lane available.

Unfortunately, accidents will still happen.

Types of Bicycle Accidents in West Hollywood, CA

Bikers can be injured in any number of ways. The most devastating accidents often involve a vehicle such as minivans, cars, trucks or SUVs. Motorists may fail to yield, run a stop sign, enter the roadway and enter into the cyclist’s path, and drivers may open their door when a bicycle is coming by. When cars hit cyclists the results are often broken bones, spinal cord injuries or other traumatic injuries which come along with big medical bills.

According to California Office of Traffic Safety, around 20 bicycle accidents are reported in West Hollywood every year.

After a bicycle accident

Exchange insurance information with the driver just as you would in a car wreck. Seek medical attention immediately. If you have serious injuries, we strongly recommend that you speak to an attorney before you speak to the driver’s insurance company.
