South Bay Bike Accidents

South Bay Bicycle Accident Attorney

Torrance Bike Injury Lawyers

A beautiful bike ride through Torrance, Hollywood Riviera, Rolling Hills and Palos Verdes, biking to work in Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Santa Monica, or along the San Pedro roadways … the South Bay area is a perfect location for biking. Unfortunately, every year dozens of bikers suffer serious injury or death after being struck by vehicles.

In many cases, it was the driver of the car that collided with the biker who was at fault …

  • For failing to pay attention
  • For drifting into the bike lane
  • For opening a car door into an oncoming bike
  • For making a sudden left turn in front of an oncoming bike, or
  • For crowding the biker out of the lane the cyclist can lawfully occupy.

Cell phone usage and texting, although they are illegal, are still huge problems resulting in distracted drivers and injured bicyclists.

The police have a duty to investigate motor vehicle-bicycle accidents resulting in serious or fatal injuries. Unfortunately, the police are not always as thorough as they should be. Some police officers routinely find bikers at fault for their injuries. They aren't alone. There is strong public sentiment against bikers and it's often terribly unfair.

At the Santa Monica law office of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, our South Bay bicycle accident attorneys work to ensure the facts are known and the jury and insurance company understand who was at fault. If you or a loved one suffered injury in a bicycle accident in California, including in the South Bay area — Torrance, Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Sepulveda, or San Pedro — contact the Santa Monica law office of Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP for a free initial consultation with an attorney.

We understand that in order to counteract any misconceptions or prejudices against bicyclists held by a jury, we need to provide clear-cut, understandable and compelling evidence. The quality of our persuasive and demonstrative evidence — models, videos, accident reconstructions — is unsurpassed. It has allowed us to achieve substantial verdicts and settlements for adult and child bike accident victims.

  • We secured a $2.3 million settlement for a biker who suffered head and neck injuries in a bike accident caused by a defective seat clip.

[ Impact to Change ]

Much of our firm's work involves taking on large corporations, insurance companies and government agencies. By and large, these entities oppose change and will expend seemingly unlimited resources to preserve the status quo. At GB&W, we relish taking on this level of opposition. Through our many years of practice, our personal injury lawyers and staff have achieved unparalleled success in trial and other forums against these opponents. Taking on these companies serves a dual purpose. First, our efforts help our clients recover the compensation they need to move forward after a life-changing injury. Secondly, our work makes communities safer places to live. In this way, everyone can benefit from our work. [ more » ]
