California law provides a bicycle rider with the same rights and responsibilities as an automobile or other vehicle operator. Therefore, the laws pertaining to bicycle riders fall within the California Vehicle Code and an accident is handled similar to an automobile accident. Certain exceptions may apply if the bicycle is not actually being "ridden" at the time of the accident.
The personal injury lawyers of the law offices of Nadrich & Cohen, LLP are extremely experienced and successful in obtaining compensation for bicycle accident victims. We have handled numerous lawsuits against negligent parties and have obtained tens of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
Nadrich & Cohen have been riding bikes all of their lives. Randal Cohen and Jeffrey Nadrich both ride bikes regularly and both rode their bikes while at University of California at Santa Barbara and University of California at Berkeley. We have never stopped riding our bikes and still ride regularly.
