Helping You Obtain the Full Measure of Compensation
The Allen Law Firm represents clients who have been injured in bicycle accidents throughout Monterey, Salinas, and other surrounding areas in CA. Our competent bicycle accident attorney provides clients with experienced, aggressive and practical legal representation with the goal of getting each of our clients the full measure of compensation that is available to them.
We know that injuries change lives, bicycle injuries in particular. Injuries are not only painful, but also leave you with high medical bills, lost income cause by missed work, and unable to engage in activities you once loved. The psychological toll of a bicycle accident can also be particularly significant. Even if your injuries heal so that you are physically able to return to riding, the memory of the accident may cause you considerable fear and anxiety, depriving you of the ability to enjoy cycling as freely as you once had.

Advocating the Rights of Bicycle Riders
Our bicycle accident clients use the roads to ride for recreation and as a means of affordable, healthy and environmentally responsible transportation. The law typically requires cyclists to use the roads rather than pedestrian walkways. When using the roads, cyclists are entitled to the same rights and protections afforded to autos. Unfortunately, a large number automobile and truck drivers fail to heed the rights of bicyclists. A staggering number of bicyclists are injured or killed by cars and trucks each year on our roads. Most of those accidents are due to the negligence of the car or truck drivers.
As many cyclists know all too well, automobile drivers simply do not pay adequate attention to their surroundings and they do not respect the rights of cyclists.
Bike riders are frequently severely injured or killed by cars for the following reasons:
- Vehicle drivers fail to check their blind spots before changing lanes,
- Make right turns without even checking for bicyclists on the shoulder,
- Open car doors in the path of cyclists,
- Pull out of their driveways or side streets without looking
Our firm’s bicycle accident lawyer, has 20 years of litigation experience, including advocacy for bicyclists who were severely injured by the negligence or carelessness of others. We have recovered millions of dollars for countless clients including our most recent case in San Francisco where our client was awarded $200,000. We require no legal payment until you recover your compensation.
If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, let our firm put its experience to work to get you the compensation you deserve. Do not attempt to negotiate with insurance companies on your own. Insurance companies care only about making money for themselves or their shareholders and they will resist paying accident victims what they deserve in order to protect their bottom lines. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and adjusters working for them and it is their job to pay out as little as possible.
