Bicycle Accident Lawyers With Unbeatable Experience

The Bay Area is a hub of California cyclist culture, but that also means that we have a greater amount of serious bicycle accidents and bicycle fatalities each year.

According to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), fatal injury cases involving bicyclists are trending up, rather than down. In addition to bicycle riding is a way of life for many Bay Area residents. Offensive drivers and cell phone distractions are making that way of life increasingly more dangerous. According to the California Vehicle Code (CVC 21200), “A person operating a bicycle...has all the rights and is subject to all the provisions applicable to the driver of a vehicle.”

As evidenced by your personal experience during daily commutes and recreational rides, as well as updated bike accident statistics, drivers are less conscientious about the rights of cyclists and are largely at fault in accidents involving bicycles. Therefore, cyclists must look after themselves and their rights to protect themselves - especially in the event of a Bay Area biking accident.

The “Other Side” Uses Numerous Legal Professionals In Your Bike Accident Case

The driver’s insurance company has an experienced, aggressive, and completely subjective team of legal professionals working on their behalf. These lawyers have one goal - to create a case that takes fault away from the driver and/or vehicle that hit you and to minimize the financial damages spent on the case. They want to settle as swiftly and as conservatively as possible. Your best interest is the least of their concern.

In many ways, the same can be said about your own insurance company. That is where we, your team of legal professionals at Burneikis Law, take up the mantle and move forward professionally and with integrity. We keep you and your loved one’s best interests at the forefront of everything we do.

The other side will intentionally ask questions to urge you into specific answers that they can quote, paraphrase, and turn around to suit their best interests. Even the most benign and well-meaning phrases, such as a simple apology or a sense of confusion, or statements such as, “I’m well, thank you…,” can be twisted to serve the other side’s goal to mitigate their client’s fault and minimize any amount paid to you.

This is not acceptable and without an insider’s perspective on how the insurance/legal process works, victims often wind up with tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars less than they would have if they had trusted an experienced Bay Area bicycle accident lawyer to assist them with the claims process.

We Advocate For Your Best Interests

Your Oakland bicycle accident lawyer acts as a personal advocate. We keep you informed, educate you about the claims and settlement processes, and make your rights our first priority.

At Burneikis Law, our goal is to work with the other side’s legal teams to establish a settlement that takes all of the above into account. Whenever possible, we keep your claim out of the courtroom, so you never have to endure more stress or trauma than you already have. The good news is that only about 5% or less of all automobile/bicycle accidents are resolved in the courtroom, so the odds are in your favor for a successful settlement within a reasonable period of time.

If your claim does go to court, it is only because the other side is being stubborn, in which case we will do all of the heavy lifting for you. We will stand by you every step of the way so you understand what is going on and what we plan to do next in order to obtain the compensation you so rightfully deserve.
