Los Angeles eBike Accident Attorney

In recent years, the use of eBikes has become increasingly common in Los Angeles and cities throughout the state of California. While motorized bikes and scooters offer riders a convenient way to get around town without leaving a significant carbon footprint, they can also lead to serious accidents.

If you’ve been hit by another driver while riding an eBike or hit by an eBike rider while driving your car, you might be unsure whether or not your right to compensation is protected by state law. Fortunately, a Los Angeles eBike accident attorney from Venerable Injury Law can determine if you’re eligible to seek damages from the other party involved in your accident.

If you’re entitled to compensation, our bicycle accident team can demand the payment you need to cover your medical bills and other losses. Contact us today to find out if you have grounds for a claim or lawsuit.

Types of eBike Accidents We Can Help You File a Claim or Lawsuit for

Since eBikes are a relatively new addition to California’s roads and highways, you might be confused about who is at fault after an accident involving an e-bike. When it comes to state law, eBikes are generally regarded as bicycles and must follow the same rules of the road as cyclists.

Still, determining fault after an eBike accident can be tricky, so you’ll want an experienced legal representative to help you through the process. Luckily, our Los Angeles eBike accident lawyers can offer legal advice and representation for eBike incidents caused by:

Motorist Passing Too Closely in Front of eBike

Under Cal. Veh. Code § 21750, motorists must leave a safe distance between their vehicle and an eBike when passing an eBike rider. If you were injured in a collision caused by a driver who failed to leave an appropriate amount of space between their car and your eBike when attempting to pass you, our team is here to help you file a claim.

eBike Collision With Open Car Door

According to Cal. Veh. Code § 22517, drivers parked on the side of the road must check for eBike riders or cyclists before opening their doors and exiting. If you crashed into a motorist’s open door while riding your eBike, a lawyer from our firm in Los Angeles can help you pursue compensation for your medical bills and other expenses. 

eBike Rider’s Failure to Signal Turn

eBike users are also expected to follow traffic laws in California. If you collided with an eBike rider because they failed to signal a turn, our attorneys can help you seek compensation for any property damage or medical expenses you incurred. 

Other Types of Accidents

These are just a few of the common types of eBike accidents that our lawyers in Los Angeles can help you recover damages after. If you were involved in a different kind of collision as an eBike rider or car driver, we can help you move forward with a claim.

Compensation You Could Obtain from a Successful eBike Accident Claim

When you meet with an eBike accident attorney from Los Angeles to discuss your case, they’ll ask you about all the accident-related expenses and emotional challenges you’ve been burdened with due to the collision. They may also ask you to provide them with copies of your medical bills, vehicle repair bills, and other relevant records. 

Using the information and documentation you provide, your lawyer can calculate how much compensation you need to return to the financial position you were in before the accident occurred. They’ll also determine how much money you need to help you cope with the intangible effects of the incident, like physical pain and emotional suffering.

Once your attorney has calculated how much compensation you’re owed, they’ll pursue the following damages on your behalf:

  • Current, ongoing, and future medical expenses
  • Cost of prescription medication and assistive medical devices
  • Physical therapy costs
  • Lost wages
  • Decreased learning ability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

We’ll Provide Real-Time Information About Your Claim

Getting real-time updates on the status of your claim can help you worry less and understand what’s going on with your claim.

Don’t Wait to Schedule Your Free Consultation

While you might be tempted to wait until you’ve regained your strength to take legal action for an accident, delaying your claim is one of the worst mistakes you can make. Insurance companies will likely take your claim less seriously when they see that it took you a long time to hire legal counsel.

Waiting to get in touch with an attorney can also put you at risk of missing California’s filing deadline for personal injury suits. According to the statute of limitations, you only have two years from the day of your collision to file a suit. Missing this deadline could stop you from getting the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
To avoid getting your claim denied or your lawsuit thrown out of court, contact Venerable Injury Law ASAP. We’ll schedule a free consultation to discuss your accident and determine if we can help you pursue a high-value settlement or jury verdict.
