Because of the size and mass of a truck, any accident between it and a bicycle may be catastrophic or fatal. Trucking companies and their insurance carriers have representatives at the scene of the accident shortly after it is reported. You need the same kind of aggressive representation if you have been injured or if you have a lost a loved one who was a bicyclist hit by a truck. Our attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries or loss.
The bike accident injury attorneys at Hiepler & Hiepler represent clients throughout California.
