Los Angeles Bicycle Accident Attorney
Pasadena Bike Injury Lawyers
Coldwater Canyon is an exhilarating ride for many area cyclists who make the steep climb so they can enjoy the speedy descent into the Hollywood Hills. It's not uncommon to see packs of bikers on the roadway in this area.
It's also not uncommon to see angry automobile drivers who drive recklessly close to the bikers or open car doors into oncoming bikes, and to see distracted and inattentive drivers talking on the phone and drifting into the path of bikers or a bike lane.
Speed, carelessness and reckless actions spell serious injury and fatalities for bicyclists in Coldwater Canyon and other Los Angeles roadways.
At the law office of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, our job as Los Angeles bicycle accident attorneys is to help the jury understand that bicyclists have the same rights as other drivers. If their rights on the road were violated and they suffered injury, they have a right to full and fair compensation.

Investigating All Possible Causes of Los Angeles Bike Crashes
We take nothing for granted. We conduct an extensive investigation into every case we handle. By preparing every case for court, we often are able to secure maximum financial settlements from insurance companies who do not want to go head-to-head with us in front of a jury.
We maintain an evidence warehouse where we store damaged bicycles for post-crash examination and mechanical review. If a defective bike part or a defective bike helmet played a part in the accident, we are prepared to bring a product liability case. Our firm has been named the "#1 personal injury law firm in California" by Best Lawyers in America, and a Top Tier national firm in Products Liability by US News and World Reports/ Best Lawyers.
We locate and interview witnesses and look for available street-level video for accidents that occur in high-traffic areas, including those along Wilshire Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard, Pacific Avenue, Olympic and Pico.
We examine road conditions, sometimes taking aerial and roadway photographs to understand and communicate to a jury the conditions that may have led to the accident. In some cases, we identify roadway defects that caused or contributed to the crash and we bring a municipal liability claim, such as this case:
- We achieved a $6.7 million settlement from the City of Los Angeles for a biker who fell over an unguarded curb and retaining wall and suffered serious back injuries resulting in paraplegia.
We work with skilled designers who create video reenactments, build models and produce live trial demonstrations, which often play a pivotal role in securing a favorable verdict.
