Riverside Bicycle Accident Lawyer, Personal Injury Attorney Los Angeles

The Verchick Law Firm specializes in handling personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits resulted from bicycle accidents. Experienced accident attorney serving Los Angeles, Riverside and surrounding Southern California communities.

Because cyclists are virtually unprotected, our bicycle injury clients have suffered injuries ranging from bruises and scrapes to broken bones, spinal injuries, head injuries and brain trauma. Bicycle accidents happen because of negligent motorists, dangerous roadway surfaces and defective design or insufficient repair of bicycles and their safety equipment. If you have been injured in a cycling accident, you need an experienced Riverside personal injury lawyer who understand the nature of these accidents, the ramifications of your injuries and how to win the necessary compensation.

Clavicle fractures are the most common break injury in a bicycle accident. The clavicle is the proper name of the collar bone. It serves as a strut between the scapula and the sternum. An acromioclavicular separation, or separated shoulder, is a common clavicle injury. Even if the injury does not require surgery, the physical therapy needed to strengthen the muscles and stabilize the joint can be arduous and costly because the therapist can only begin once the pain from the injury has eased. From there, the patient can begin treatment in two phases: range of motion exercises followed by a strength training program. It can take months for the injured person to recover.

Stephen Verchick, our firm’s founding attorney, is an avid cyclist and supporter of cycling organizations. He understands the joys and challenges riders experience on California’s streets, highways and trails. As a personal attorney with over 35 years of experience practicing bicycle law throughout Southern California, he understands cyclists’ rights and knows how to win cases that other attorneys would lose.

Attorney Verchick has broad career experience that helps him win you the compensation you deserve. First as an insurance adjustor and then as a Los Angeles Superior Court mediator, he is familiar with the dirty tricks that insurance companies pull to deny you just compensation. He is the best personal injury attorney to win a favorable verdict of settlement in cases involving vehicles turning both right and left, collisions with opened vehicles, cars illegally parked in bike lanes, inattentive drivers, failure to provide adequate space while passing, road rage altercations and rundowns and finally, situations in which injuries cause wrongful death.

A wrongful death is a death that was caused by the negligence or willful intent of another that leads to the loss of emotional support, financial support and physical support for those the deceased leaves behind. Loss of emotional support can include things like sex while financial support would include the wages and earning potential of the decedent. Physical support includes tasks and duties performed by the decedent that now fall to those remaining.
