Have you been injured in a car accident while riding a bike?
Let’s look at some fast facts:
- Each year, around 55,000 cyclists are injured in the U.S. where the injuries are serious enough to file a report, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
- In California there are 235,000 traffic accidents a year on average, and the bicycle injuries make up 5.3% of total injuries, according to Bay Area Bicycle Law.
- California is often first in the nation for cyclists’ deaths in a given year. Bicycle deaths in California make up 4% of all auto accident deaths in the state which is double the national average of 2%.
The shock of getting injured in a car accident can be traumatic, especially if you’re on your bicycle.

At the Girgis Law Firm, APC, all bicycle accident injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis.
