Bicyclists and car drivers have a historically antagonistic relationship as they try to share the road. As bicycling has become increasingly popular, due to a desire to be healthier and as a regular mode of transportation, there has been a steady rise in the cases of bicyclists being hit by a car. The lack of any protection, beyond a helmet, for a bicyclist means that injuries are usually catastrophic or fatal. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, or if you have lost a family member, our attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses, lost wages and other costs associated with the accident.
The attorneys at Hiepler & Hiepler represent bike accident victims throughout California.
Were You Hit by a Car on Your Bike in California?
The law firm of Hiepler & Hiepler has become well known as a champion within the bicycling community, having achieved a $12.5 million wrongful death verdict for the family of a bicyclist hit by an elderly driver and a substantial settlement for the wife of another bicyclist killed in a hit-and-run accident by a drunk driver. We have the resources, the determination and the proven track record to see your case through to the end.
In every case we handle that involves a criminal trial and a civil claim, we guide you through both aspects of the legal process. We stay in regular contact with the prosecuting attorney and make sure your voice is heard as part of the criminal trial, as well as part of the civil case. We understand that this is a difficult time for you and we are sensitive to your emotions and needs as we pursue just compensation for you.
