Bicycle Accident Lawyer in Alameda County, California

Protecting the Rights of Injured Bicyclists

With the high cost of gasoline, more and more people are turning to alternative means of transportation, including the use of bicycles. Unfortunately, with more cyclists on the road, the risk of serious injury has increased. According to a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 50,000 reported bicycle accident injuries in 2009, including over 600 fatalities. Authorities also believe that many more bicycle accident injuries were not reported because they were not believed to be serious.

If you have been hurt on a bicycle because of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you should always seek immediate medical attention and should always report the accident. Injuries that seem minor at first can have long-lasting and debilitating consequences. The Law Firm of Kevin D. Taguchi can help.

At the Law Firm of Kevin D. Taguchi, we take an aggressive approach when protecting the rights of personal injury victims, including bicyclists. A former deputy district attorney in Alameda County , attorney Taguchi has considerable trial experience and knows when to pursue a settlement and when to take your case to court to get the best outcome for you. In a recent car accident case in which defendants sought to settle for $10,000 before trial, we won a $306,000 verdict for our client.
